Nintendo Hiring Level Designer for The Legend of Zelda Game Series

Adjust Comment Print

Nintendo is looking to hire a level designer for future games in The Legend of Zelda series. As with any opening, there are some criteria the company's looking for. Will create events/dungeons/fields/enemies from design to actual implementation. You'll be expected to communicate in Japanese, so that could be a stumbling block for many of us.

According to the information contained in the job announcement, the level designer in question should deal with dungeons, scenarios, management of events and enemies, obviously with a view to a new project dedicated to the series of The Legend of Zelda. The successful applicant will get allowances for housing, moving, and transportation as well.

Although Nintendo does not usually release two Zelda games for the same console, it will likely make an exception this time due to the success of Breath of the Wild.

While many fans of The Legend of Zelda are disappointed that they are having to rely on mods in order to make Zelda playable, many will be hoping that this spurs Nintendo to reconsider. Even if the game is already under development, it could be years before we see gameplay and even longer for a release.

For the last month, the Breath of the Wild Modding Hub Discord has been crafting, refining, and reimagining Zelda into Breath of the Wild. A modder named Ainz explains that enhancing the mod "meant giving Zelda appropriate dialogue, changing music and other tweaks to improve the game".
