A recently discovered job listing reveals the company is looking for level designers for the next Hylian adventure, and if you've got level planning experience, you could fulfill a lifelong dream of actually working on a Zelda game. The job role includes planning in-game events, dungeons and creating enemies. The position requires previous experience in game development and proficiency in Japanese (the job is listed on Nintendo's Japanese website). In 2017, longtime series producer Eiji Aonuma told Game Informer that there was "definitely a possibility" that the 3DS Zelda team would work on a game for the Nintendo Switch.

Depending on abilities and aptitude the level designer on the Zelda series will be responsible for the following tasks.
