Get your resumes and passports ready! Nintendo of Japan has listed two positions online that seem to be Zelda-related, potentially hinting that a new game is in the works.
As uncovered by ResetEra user guru-guru, two jobs have been posted (in Japanese of course) on Nintendo’s jobs page
The first listing is for a 3DCG Designer, specifying that it is for ‘creation of data related to terrain such as field dungeons used in the game”. Additional work with level design and concept art may also be included. This one might be tough to apply for though – with experience in Maya and Adobe Photoshop a must, as well as software development as well as fluency in Japanese forming part of the requirements.
The second listing asks for a Level Designer, involving “game event/dungeon/field planning” as well as “planning of enemies, preparation and adjustment of specifications” for levels. The application requirements are again quite involved, including having experience working as a game planner for consumer games as well as fluency in Japanese.
Both jobs are based in Nintendo’s Kyoto headquarters, and if you are the right candidate it also seems you can receive moving costs depending on where you relocate from. If you think you’ve got the experience and ability, why not make the jump and apply here. You could have your name on the next big Legend of Zelda title!
