Marvelous Is Seeking Additional Staff to Create “High End, Next Generation” Games

First Studio, the subsidiary branch of Marvelous responsible for such games as Soul Sacrifice, God Eater 3, and Daemon x Machina, has initiated a hiring spree. Their goal? To expand as necessary in order to meet the rigorous demands of next-generation hardware. That means PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and presumably whatever comes next when Nintendo decides to stop obliterating hardware sales records with the Switch.

Among First Studio’s current projects is a “brand-new large-scale RPG.” While their more action-centered approach to video games means we haven’t covered First Studio all that much in the past, news of a big RPG for shiny new consoles means that’s certain to change soon. I suppose it’s no great surprise that Marvelous would have them tilt toward the role-playing direction; Marvelous is, after all, the company behind hit games such as Doraemon: Story of Seasons and eagerly-anticipated fare like Rune Factory 5.

More RPGs en route means more smiling faces here at RPGFan. And I reckon many of our readers feel the same. Let’s hope that whatever First Studio crafts next, its quality is truly Marvelous.
