Nintendo aims to hire app developers with Unreal Engine and online game experience


Nintendo dropped its first mobile app Miitomo less than a few months ago, but has plans to release more apps in the future, including a mobile app based in the Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem universe.

According to Japanese publication Game Watch Impress, Nintendo is looking to hire more app developers set to work out of its Kyoto headquarters and Tokyo office. It’s unclear if these developers will work alongside DeNA as part of the company’s agreement with the Japanese mobile game developer.

The Kyoto listing is seeking a developer with proficiency designing apps for smart devices and planning game servers. It also mentions Nintendo wants to hire a developer with significant experience in smartphone graphic development, specifically those that have worked with Unity, Cocos2d-x and UnrealEngine.

The Tokyo listing is also software related, including previous experience in smartphone app development as an asset, and also mentioning Unity, Cocos2d-x and UnrealEngine expertise.
