The head count at Monolith Soft has increased from 168 in May to 171 in July, and they’re hiring for business assistant staff right now. In other words, the company is healthy and growing, as is to be expected of one of Nintendo’s ace second-party developers.
Seriously, when’s the last time Monolith Soft made a bad game? Possibly never? Sure, reception to Xenoblade Chronicles X was mixed, and I myself thought Xenoblade Chronicles 2 played things far too safe. But Monolith Soft is very strong in their niche. In addition to the masterful Xenosaga games, I will always love this developer for fulfilling my childhood dream of creating a fantastic Dragon Ball Z RPG with Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyans on Nintendo DS.
What’s your favorite game from this RPG-loving developer? I’m not honestly sure what my answer to that one is.
