Game Freak has published a new article on its recruitment website where it entices people to work with the company and get themselves involved in the future of the Pokemon series. One of those involved in the feature is Shigeru Omori, who is the director behind the incredibly popular Pokemon Sword and Shield. He mentioned in the article that his main goal and those of the development team is to utilise new technologies to help create Pokemon games which “gamers desire, and give the feeling that Pokemon exists and lives with us.” The next entry in the Pokemon franchise is Pokemon Legends: Arceus which is out on 28th January. Here’s what was said:
“Even after 20 years, the Pokemon franchise is still going strong. Omori says that even if he thinks that the game is perfect, there are always new ideas after the project is over. He added that Pokemon will continue to change with new technology, new development teams and with new ways of playing games. Omori wants to create Pokemon games that gamers desire, and give the feeling that Pokemon exists and lives with us.”
“It might be surprising to hear that every Pokemon title is made in an entirely different way. Team members try not to rely on experience, and enjoy tackling the new challenge given to them. Iwao emphasised that no matter the work, if you do it long enough it will eventually become tedious. With Game Freak however, there are always new opportunities and positions, and being able to join in gear projects means it never gets repetitive and never gets boring. With the vast amount of experience spanning over 20 years, a unique system that allows youths to experience failure and success and a company continuing to change generations, Pokemon will continue to evolve.”
