Bandai Namco and Nintendo are apparently working on a project together, according to new job listings. It is looking for a visual artist, person who can work on HD remasters of 3D backgrounds, and a planner. All three roles are available to people in Tokyo, Japan. [Thanks, Resetera and Destructoid!]
All three Bandai Namco job listings note that they are for a Nintendo project. They explain Nintendo contracted the company to work on a title. Each one also mentions the same 3D action game. However, only the one mentions working on backgrounds to remaster them for the game in question.
It isn’t unusual for Bandai Namco to work on Nintendo games. It worked on the 3DS, Wii U, and Switch Super Smash Bros games. It was involved with the Wii U and Switch versions of Mario Kart 8 and Pokken Tournament. You can also credit Bandai Namco with assists on sports games like Mario Sports Superstars, Go Vacation, and Wii Sports Club. It developed New Pokemon Snap as well. Not to mention support offered for ARMS and Mario Kart Tour.
There are no hints as to what Nintendo game the new Bandai Namco job listings could be referring to. The last original title Bandai Namco worked on for the company is New Pokemon Snap.
