Rumor: Pokemon Switch Localization Will Start This Year

Rumor: Pokemon Switch Localization Will Start This Year

The Pokemon Company is seeking a short term editor to work on "on all editorial facets of video games, and related materials (video game strategy guide, video game web site etc.) in Spanish". If this job posting is not for the Nintendo Switch game, then what is it for?

As spotted on the Pokemon Careers website, the developer is now looking for a "Localisation Editor (6 month minimum contract) - Spanish" based in a location in London, United Kingdom. The job is set to commence between April and June of this year, fueling speculation that it specifically deals with the new Pokemon game for the Nintendo Switch. It's just as likely that the job listing is for Pokeland, which we haven't heard ANY news about in nearly a year, than the untitled Pokemon Switch Game. The Pokemon game could fill that void, but we'll just have to wait and see.

Typically, Pokemon games release in early March or mid-October.

Traditionally, Pokemon games are seen as "system sellers" for Nintendo consoles: it's estimated that thanks to the release of Diamond and Pearl on the Nintendo DS, for example, Pokemon helped sell an additional 500,000 DS units the year it was released.

However, the new job listing isn't necessarily an indication that the Pokemon Switch title is coming this year. We have lots of questions about the game such as what the game actually is and when we can play it!

Localization would be one of the final steps for completing a Pokemon game. This process could take place at varies stages of the game's development, but some fans are hoping that this means things are coming to a close and the game could be ready as early as holiday 2018.

This job ad was originally spotted by user nmkd on Reddit. It's a popular brand; therefore, be sure to check back for updates on the latest Nintendo Switch titles.

It's likely this game is related to the Nintendo Switch since Nintendo has already released many Pokemon video games on the 3DS already.
