Nintendo Switch ports of some Legend of Zelda games might be on the way.
Both Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask received remakes on the Nintendo 3DS in 2011 and 2015, respectively, and both remakes were created by the same studio: Grezzo. Now, that same studio has put out an “emergency recruitment” call, searching for people to work on a new project.
Of course, the recruitment page doesn’t say exactly what the company is working on, but there are several clues we can piece together. For one, the project will utilize the Unreal Engine 4—which is one of the larger engines already up and running on the Nintendo Switch. Even more telling, the recruitment page has a strange headline that translates to “Would you like to make a legend together 2.” At first glance, it’s nonsensical—unless you look at the company’s previous job listing for the Majora’s Mask remake, which also asked if applicants would like to make a legend together. Both of these clues together point to a Legend of Zelda game heading to the Nintendo Switch.
Of course, nothing is certain. Grezzo has worked on a few other titles, including the recent Ever Oasis and The Legend of Legacy—another game with “legend” in the title. And, as GameRant spotted, Grezzo founder Koichi Ishii also used the “legend” title while working on Secret of Mana.
No matter what the case is, it seems that a new fairly high-profile game is in development. The company’s listing asks for C++ programmers with experience with the Unreal Engine and 3D character and map modelers, so at the very least this won’t be a port of one of the 2D Zelda games.
If you think you’re qualified for the job, the listing can be found on the Grezzo website. In the meantime, we’ll keep an ear out for any updates on this mysterious project.
