Nintendo kicked off their new console, the Switch, in the best way possible, with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. This game was so good that it became the Game of the Year dozens of times over, and is still winning awards over a year later. The game revolutionized what many had thought was a dying franchise, and proved it still had much to offer. But, now, everyone wonders what comes next.

Well, we can now confirm that Nintendo is indeed working on a new Legend of Zelda game, as a Twitter post containing a job listing for a Level Designer position in Nintendo notes that it’s for that franchise.

The position will have the applicant making dungeons, enemies, certain events in the world, and more. Now, there is the question as to whether this could be on the Switch or the 3DS, as Nintendo is extending the life of its handheld apparently. The listing though states that the person should have experience in console game making.


So, the next major Legend of Zelda title is indeed in the works. More than likely we won’t see or hear anything about it for quite some time, but simply knowing it’s being made is exciting enough.
