When it comes to the world of video games, Bandai Namco and Nintendo have maintained a fairly strong relationship, and it seems like every time we turn around, we learn that the two companies are collaborating on some new project. Bandai Namco posted a job listing about eight months ago that seemed to point toward working on a remaster for Nintendo.
Another posting for a seemingly identical position has now surfaced, reigniting the rumors once again. Bandai Namco is looking to hire a planner to oversee the development of a 3D action game in collaboration with Nintendo. Again, we aren’t given a clear description of the game or any other specifics. However, it is highly probable that this position is connected to the same 3D action remaster announced eight months before, in April 2022.
Since we don’t know any specifics, we can only guess what the game could be. As previously stated, we know that this game will be a remaster. Based on that, most people would pick Kid Icarus Uprising, which makes sense given that it was developed by Sora Ltd, the same studio responsible for Super Smash Bros. And it was directed by Masahiro Sakurai, who previously directed Super Smash Bros.
Take everything with a grain of salt though, as there have been no official confirmations from either side. Aside from that, we know that the game in question is still in development because job postings for the game are still being published. Whatever it is, assuming it is a real project, we may expect to hear from the developers soon.
Till then, let us know your thoughts on this whole project and whether or not you would like to see both studios collaborate once again on a new game. We will also make sure to keep you informed of any updates as new information becomes available.
