Nintendo Is Hiring For A New Legend of Zelda Game

The job title is for a Level Designer that will be good at "dungeon creation and enemy planning" reports WCCFTech. Nintendo now has an open vacancy for hiring a level designer for the Legend of Zelda game series who will be creating events, dungeons, fields, and enemies from design to actual implementation.

However, we will only know if this game is actually for the Switch when Nintendo makes an official disclosure. Their tasks will include plan proposals, adjustments, specifications, and the actual implementation among others. And, to help those that are looking to apply, Nintendo is looking for someone with game planning experience on console games and who has confidence in communicating in Japanese.


Development for the previous game in the series, Breath of the Wild, began in 2013, with the game releasing four years later, but that time involved substantial manpower for brainstorming and creating a new engine.

Nevertheless, fans hope that the project is indeed a new Zelda game that takes the best things about BotW, such as its open world design. An unfinished character model - which was discovered deep in the game's code - was used as a base for her build, with the team constructing everything from new dialogue and armour to adjusting the score and adding an appropriate title screen. Are you ready for the next Legend of Zelda game, or are you still happily playing Breath of the Wild?
