Square Enix recruiting Technical Artists for Kingdom Hearts III and a Network Game Programmer for Osaka Team

Yesterday, we reported that Square Enix is recruiting a UI Designer for Osaka Team's Kingdom Hearts III. Today, Square Enix Japan has posted job advertisements on their career website for Technical Artists for Osaka Team's Kingdom Hearts III and another advertisement for a Network Game Programmer for a "online multiplayer game". Osaka Team's only announced title still in development is Kingdom Hearts III which is most likely a single-player game. Could this be related to the Kingdom Hearts series? Or is it more likely related to the Final Fantasy series? There's plenty of speculation that could occur here, but we'll leave that up to you guys. What do you think it could be?

Thanks to our translator SkyKeybladeHero, you can read the job advertisement summaries below.

You will be assigned as a General Supporter (construction of Workflow, Middleware Selection, etc.), helping us achieve a high-quality Graphic representation for KHIII.

Your job includes creating Shaders for natural representations (water/rain/snow, etc.) and special effects such as Magic, using the Game Engine.

※ Location will be Osaka

You will be responsible for planning and implementing the Communication System for Online Multiplayer Game (C/S method).

They just made another nice profit on the back of their mobile division and FFXIV.

Online mulitplayer possible in KH3?

" You will be responsible for business to build a game engine on the shaders and special effects (water / rain / snow, etc.)"

 

snow?

 

Snow???

 

Not sure if this hints to a Frozen world XB

Christmas Town~

Hype- this, UI thing hire, and kh2.5 new secret movie! :D

Well for me that confirms online multiplayer mode in KH3.

Most of their money is coming from Dragon Quest X. Now if only they'd release it outside of one f*cking country.

And FFXIV and their mobile division.

I wouldn't think their mobile games would sell well. I mean I'm sure as hell not going to pay $16 for shoddy port of FFVI.

They actually do though. Lol. Their among the top selling games on the Apple App Store, Google Play Store and even Amazon Appstore.

 

Apple even list their them as one of their top developers at their press conferences.

Final Fantasy VI is doing pretty well on the Google Play Store despite it's price tag, your distaste for it and the fact it came out in January.

Well most of the games on there are free to play with endless micro-transactions. There aren't just a whole lot of popular games above 99 cents.

Actually you're wrong.

Most of them you play for~

Seems like KH3 might have multiplayer. I wouldn't have problems with a Mirage Arena-like multiplayer system with progression and all that stuff.

 

Kind of makes me think that when I was a kid my dream was to work for Square Enix developing games like Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts. Not something I'd really consider anymore though.

People, reality check:

 

They're looking for someone who lives in Japan, is fluent in Japanese, is an expert on programming......probably has a degree(s) in that sort of thing....

 

Just saying xD

 

Anyway, I think it's possible KH3 could have a multiplayer mode. It's not like it'd be the only RPG to do that. 

 

 

As for the snow thing, there are other worlds in KH that have that. It doesn't necessarily mean Frozen. Land of the dragons, and Christmas town have snow.

The Land of the Dragons also has a sequel while Christmas Town is in one of their most used worlds.

 

Also, Pirates of the Caribbean. 

Almost every Disney movie has rain especially in the dramatic parts. But for snow could be Frozen or Brother Bear. 

 

looks like Atlantica can return or we see Atlantis or Finding Nemo

This is an amazing opportunity. Application sent!  :biggrin:

With this information it can be confirmed that release date in 2015 is impossible. 2016 is most likely we can expect it to release. Probably mid to late 2016..

These are the times when I think I should have chosen Game Programming instead of Foreign Trade.

 

This is an amazing opportunity. Application sent!  :biggrin:

では、面接をしている事にしましょうね。

なぜスクエアエニックスで仕事をしたいと思っていますか。

These job postings concern me. If they're still hiring programmers, then the tittle can't be very far along.

so... release date 2020?
