Nintendo seems to be having a fun time finding new ways to utilize their many I.P.s. The Legend of Zelda is getting a new, almost-claymation-esque remake for the Switch in the form of The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, and in the past, they even allowed the franchise to get the Dynasty Warriors makeover for Hyrule Warriors. Hell, even recently, they let an indie developer get their grubby hands on the franchise for a Crypt of the NecroDancer game. But what other liberties are they giving the franchise? Only the future will tell, but there does seem to be one interesting development.
Monolith Soft has posted a job listing on Twitter for a whole development stuff that will be working on a Zelda game. The Twitter translator states that they’re looking for technical artists, planners, designers, programmers, and a project manager. So what does this mean for the upcoming Zelda game? Given the work the developer has done with games like Xenoblade Chronicles 2, it is pretty exciting, but does it mean much?

Sadly, not really. I mean, perhaps the only thing we can take from it is that Nintendo is working hard to get this game out in a timely manner, and is willing to reach out to their second-party developer to make it happen. Monolith Soft also helped in the development process of Breath of the Wild with graphics design and artistic elements. So, it’s not unprecedented.
To me, the big takeaway here is that they’re bringing in extra resources, and perhaps that means they’re diving headfirst into development, meaning that release in a couple years or earlier isn’t out of the question.
