Monolith Soft Are Planning A Large Expansion In Tokyo, With Several Job Listings For Legend Of Zelda

Monolith Soft's kept themselves busy in recent times. Best known for leading development on the Xenoblade series, they've also offered support for notable games like Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Splatoon 2. Amongst that list? The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild's upcoming sequel.

First announced at E3 2019, we've not seen much of it since then, but we're slowly getting a better idea about the sequel's development. As part of a wider recruitment effort, Monolith Soft has uploaded 40 new job listings in Tokyo, which were spotted by VGC.

Monolith Soft Are Planning A Large Expansion in Tokyo, Lists Jobs for Zelda

Out of these, six are new roles and many don't reference a specific project or series. However, five of them relate to work for “the Legend of Zelda series”. Considering Breath of the Wild's scope, it sounds like more people are jumping in for this large-scale project.

Monolith Soft's seen significant growth in recent years. First formed after splitting from Square Enix over Xenogears, they've got four locations across Japan and 270 staff employed, which is now set to grow. We've got no idea when we'll next get a look at the sequel, but here's hoping for another appearance at E3 2021.
