It’s been just over a year since The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild made its debut. Unsurprisingly, Nintendo has wasted no time jumping to their next title, as they confirmed a new Zelda game is in development back in December. While the project is almost certainly in its early stages, Nintendo’s already recruiting staff, including a new level designer.
A listing posted on an official Nintendo website in Japan is calling for a new level designer to join the Zelda team. Applicants must have experience and be fluent in Japanese. The level designer will be expected to work on events, dungeons, fields, and enemies. The job comes with an initial trial period of three months, and can pay between $34,800 – $74,100 per year, depending on your level of experience. No platforms were specified in the listing.
We’re not sure at this time whether the next Zelda will be a big, 3D adventure like Breath of the Wild, something smaller like past handheld Zelda games, a smartphone app, or something completely different. What do you hope to see next from The Legend of Zelda?
