Breath of the Wild 2 job listing hints at dungeons in sequel

Looks like the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild might have more of a focus on dungeons.


The sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is already in development, and it's likely coming sooner than we think. Confirmed during Nintendo's E3 2019 presentation alongside a short clip, we know we should be looking forward to it, but not when. Now, thanks to a few new tidbits found lurking around the internet, we may know a teensy bit more about what to expect from the game. 

According to new job listings via the Nintendo Japan website, it looks like dungeons will be a more important part of the game this time around. Nintendo is currently seeking a 3D computer graphics designer to work on the game's terrain, including field dungeons as well as a level designer to work on the planning and implementation of dungeons in addition to events in-game.

Whoever is chosen for the roles will work out of Nintendo's Kyoto headquarters. Applications for the jobs will be closing in September...just in case you were thinking about heading across the world and signing up to be recruited. 

Several posts on the Japanese developer's website in the past had been advertisign positions for things like designers, technical artists, and programmers, all being asked to come work on a new Zelda game. The page itself is adorned with Zelda iconography and designs, like a large Triforce. It's no surprise that the company is looking for the best of the best painstakingly to make the best itle that they can. 

Monolith Soft currently has three studios housed in Japan, with the largest based in Tokyo. Previously, the developer there helped work on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The Kyoto studio has done its fair share of contributing to Nintendo games as well, such as Animal Crossing and Splatoon.

Breath of the Wild has been smashing records and enjoying a ridiculous amount of success since it debuted on the Nintendo Switch, so we're definitely hopeful that whatever this new entry is brings us at least a fraction of what we got out of that adventure. Where could the Zelda series go next from here? We'll have to wait and see.
