Nintendo has made its name as top end game & console maker throughout the world. The company may be up for the next advancement in terms of its legendary 'Zelda' avatar. The company has reportedly begun a new process of hiring for a probable upcoming project on "The Legend of Zelda." A pair of job listing related to the same positions were spotted by user guru-guru on Resetera.  

According to Variety, the first listing is for "a 3DCG designer who will reportedly work on topography in the game." The second listing is for a level designer, who will be responsible for the creation and implementation of "in-game events, dungeons, fields, and enemies." Notably, the job description describes the positions as the front runners o the series.

It stated: "The Legend of Zelda" project employees will work on. The last main entry in the series, "Breath of the Wild," came out in March 2017 and has sold over 10 million copies to date. Nintendo has produced two DLC packs for it since then. While it hasn't announced plans for additional expansions, former Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima said in January the company wants to release "even more downloadable content and events that build excitement for games."   

Nintendo has been in the run with its potential rivals like PS4 & Xbox One and it has clinched surprising growth in terms of its annual calls, as per a report by IGN. The company's Chief Shuntaro Furukawa said in an earning meeting held in this October: "We need continuous growth." He continued to stress on the marks of the company's prosperity and high rise in the gaming industry while speaking to Bloomberg at an interview via Twitter, recently.

Furukawa stated: "We must keep releasing new software. That includes DLCs and other contents for big titles that are already out. And more focus on online play. Lastly, more genres and diverse games to draw in people who don't currently play on Switch." Nintendo has already clinched superlative victory with its spectacular titles such as: "Fire Emblem," "Super Mario Bros.," and "Animal Crossing."

The company is also reportedly working on a brand new Switch Console which is expected by out by the end of the first phase of 2019. The title of 'Zelda' has been one of the classic entertainment items of the company. The new edition, if it is true to appear soon, will surely clinch more fan following than before.
