Bandai Namco Might Be Remastering A ‘3D Action Game’ For Nintendo

A recent job listing suggests that Bandai Namco is working on an HD remaster of a Nintendo game.

The listings, as spotted by VGC, have appeared on the company’s Japanese recruitment page. And it points towards Bandai Namco working on some kind of HD remaster for Nintendo. One of the listings is for a “3D action game designer.”

It says “You will work as a planner and developer for a 3D action game project commissioned by Nintendo.” Another listing for a “3D action game background artist,” states that it’s looking for a “visual artist position for a 3D action game project commissioned by Nintendo.

The reason we know it is probably for a remaster of a game is that one of the listings is for a “3D action game background HD remaster role.” This role is described as a “visual artist position for a 3D action game project,” specialising in “HD remastering of 3D backgrounds.” Duties listed for this role are the “remastering of deformed 3D backgrounds,” the “porting of existing 3D background data,” and the “incorporation of data into in-house game engines.

Bandai Namco has previously worked on a number of Nintendo titles, such as Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, New Pokémon Snap, and Pokkén Tournament. As well as games like Arms, and a large number of assets for Mario Kart 8. What this remaster could be is up in the air though, but obviously, it’s for some kind of 3D action game.
