Creatures, a Pokémon developer, is seeking for positions working on “next generation hardware”

A 3DCG character modeler is wanted, according to a job posting for the developer that has been circulating on social media.

“Research and development for other next-generation hardware” is stated in the job description as part of the role’s work flow, which can indicate that the business is in the planning stages for a product that will be released on a future platform.

The Nintendo Switch has had the most mainline Pokémon games since any console’s launch, with 5 since 2017.

The third significant Pokémon game for the Nintendo Switch in a year, after Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl and Pokémon Legends: Arceus, will be Pokémon Scarlet and Violet when it launches later this month.

It’s interesting to note that the job description also mentions Detective Pikachu, PokePark, and Pokémon Ranger. The last Pokémon Ranger game was released in 2010 for the Nintendo DS, despite the fact that a Detective Pikachu sequel has been in the works for years. For the Nintendo Wii, the final PokePark app was launched in 2012.

But it’s unlikely that this portends a comeback for these shows. Since Creatures usually focuses on Pokémon modeling for games in the main series, these games are the most recent ones in the Pokémon series to have them as the development lead.

Although Creatures Inc has been a part of the Pokémon property since its inception, the company just recently joined forces with Game Freak as the game series transitioned to 3D with 2013’s X and Y.

Along with Nintendo, Game Freak and Creatures Inc. jointly own the Pokémon video game series.

Up to four players can freely explore an open environment when Pokémon Scarlet & Violet is released in November.

Additionally, it has been revealed that Ed Sheeran’s new song, which is inspired by Pokémon, will appear in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

Nintendo revealed plans to release an exclusive Scarlet & Violet-themed Switch OLED console in September.

Ten million people play The First Descendant in its first week

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Raiden, the famous shmup series, will come back as a twin-stick shooter on PS5, PS4, and PC

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.
