The Zelda team is hiring.
It appears as though we may be getting a new Zelda game sooner than we think, as Nintendo has posted a job listing seeking an experienced level designer for The Legend of Zelda series.
Initially translated by twitter user 黒凧 BlackKite, IGN has confirmed that the listing is indeed accurate.
The job is for the company’s Kyoto headquarters and entails dungeon creation, enemy design, events, and field (or map) creation. Due to the location and amount of group work required in the position, the listing affirms that applicants must be confident in their abilities to communicate in Japanese.
It’s worth noting that the listing specifies that this will be a contract position with no guarantee of permanent employment. Depending on the applicant’s experience and abilities, salary can range anywhere between $34,766 to $74,107. Nintendo is also offering to pay a moving and housing allowance, as well as daily transportation fees.
