As announced on 3rd March 2021, Genshin Impact developer miHoYo has announced that they currently hiring for multiple positions in Japan. There’s a significant number of roles being hired across all departments in the company. As listed on the recruitment page, here are all the positions being offered at the moment:
- Human Resources
- Player Support
- Video production and editing
- Web designers
- Designers – will work on designing banners, art, goods, etc
- Chinese to Japanese translators – will work on localizing future content
- IP goods planning – will plan the production of characters goods, meet with the development team and designers, negotiate with manufacturers, etc
- Marketing – online and/or offline marketing
Some of details listed in the roles are quite interesting, such as translators requiring familiarity with anime, manga, novels, and otaku culture. Given the nature of Genshin Impact itself, it’s no surprise. At the moment, the game does suffer some odd grammatical errors and typos, so expanding the localization team would certainly help to ensure better quality in that area.
With miHoYo expanding in almost every aspect, this does show that they are gearing up to face the unprecedented success from Genshin Impact. Of course, this would also apply to their other games like Honkai Impact, and future games as well. A bigger team would give them more room to work on major updates, especially new content. Hopefully, this will be a sign that the game will remain healthy with more things for gamers to enjoy in the long run.
Genshin Impact is currently available for free on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, PC, Android, and iOS. A Nintendo Switch port will be coming, but no word yet on when that will be happening.
Pokdepinion: Hopefully there will be major updates that could change the very way the game is played, though I don’t expect that to happen so soon.
