The Pokemon Company May Be Preparing to Make Moves in the Metaverse – Metaverse Bitcoin News

The Pokemon Company, a company responsible for the development of the Pokemon brand, may be preparing to make some moves regarding the franchise and metaverse. The company has opened a job opportunity that includes experience and knowledge of fields such as blockchain, Web3 and metaverse as a requirement, including connections with investors in these areas.

The Pokemon franchise could be coming to the Metaverse

The Pokemon franchise could take its brand to the metaverse. Fans of the franchise believe that the opening of a new position involving metaverse and Web3 knowledge may indicate that the company is moving in this direction. The company is not directly responsible for developing Pokémon games, and is more involved in the development of the brand and the distribution of the products.

The company is currently seeking a “Corporate Development Principal”, who will be responsible for the construction of strategies and partnerships to grow the Pokemon Company, and bring new ideas and developments for the brand. However, the role also includes two requirements that suggest an approach from the company to the metaverse.

These requirements include having “deep knowledge and understanding of Web3, including blockchain technologies and NFT, and/or metaverse,” and being “deeply connected to a network of investors and entrepreneurs” in those industries.

Nintendo fans worried

This job opening has fans fearing that Nintendo may be planning to release a series of NFTs or to prepare a metaverse based on the franchise. Twitter user Rogue reacted negatively, dismissing the possible development, posts:

I think a lot of people fall from interest in pokemon. For me, as a 10 year old gamer, this scares me.

Although other companies like Niantic have already developed virtual reality-enhanced Pokemon games like Pokemon Go, Nintendo has been concerned when it comes to dealing with NFTs and the metaverse. In February 2022, Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa stated that while the metaverse had great potential, the company needed to be able to offer new and fresh experiences to experiment with it. Furukawa explained:

We can consider something if we can find a way to convey a ‘Nintendo approach’ to the metaverse that many people can easily understand.

This sets Nintendo apart from other game developers who have already included NFTs, Web3, and metaverse experiences as part of their business plans, such as Square Enix, Bandai Namco, and even Sega.
