Operation Backlog Completion 2024

While I mainly think of Monolith Soft as the developer behind JRPGs like Baten Kaitos and Xenoblade, they have a supplementary studio in Kyoto that works with Nintendo on other games.

The Kyoto branch worked on three games in the Legend of Zelda series: Skyward Sword, A Link Between Worlds, and Breath of the Wild.

Now, it appears they’re getting ready to work on another. According to the translation from Gematsu, Monolith Soft’s latest job post is looking for technical artists, programmers, planners, designers, and a project manager for work on a title in the Legend of Zelda series.

With the Link’s Awakening remake coming out this year, does this mean the announcement for the next major Legend of Zelda title will be coming soon? I can see it being announced at E3.

This also should be the third game Monolith Soft is currently working on, since they were previously hiring for a new Xenoblade game and they have a new fantasy IP in development as well.

When do you think the new Legend of Zelda game will be announced?
