Nintendo Still Recruiting Designers for Breath for the Wild Sequel
Posted on July 05 2019 by Rod Lloyd
Back in January, Nintendo listed two job openings on its Japanese recruitment website for work on the next project in the Zelda franchise. We now know that, as revealed at E3 2019, that next project will be a follow-up to the acclaimed Breath of the Wild. It seems Nintendo is still recruiting for the sequel, as the two positions listed months ago have once again been posted to the company’s recruitment site.
Nintendo is seeking both a 3DCG (Terrain) Designer and a Level Designer for the upcoming sequel to Breath of the Wild. As was the case in January, the former position specifies work on in-game terrain and dungeons, while the latter specifies work on dungeons, enemies, and in-game events. The company is seeking candidates with prior game planning experience and good Japanese communications skills, as well as experience in Maya and Photoshop.
Both positions carry a contractor status. The 3DCG Designer position has an application deadline of September 30th, while the listing for the Level Designer position shows no application deadline. If you think you are good candidate for either position, you can find all the information right here.
With the Zelda development team still recruiting for their next project, it seems unlikely that we will see Breath of the Wild 2 release within the next 12 months, at least. But as much as we don’t want the wait to be too long, we appreciate the developers taking the time to build the best team possible and taking the time to make the game the best it can be.
What are your thoughts on these job listings? Do you think it sheds more light on Breath of the Wild 2′s release window? Let us know in the comments below.
