Grezzo, Team Behind The Legend of Zelda Remakes, Hiring For New “Legend”

This bit of news comes from Game Informer.

Grezzo, a Japanese video game developer best known in recent years for 3DS remakes of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask, is recruiting for Unreal Engine 4 programmers.

The website, when translated to English, describes hiring developers for a new project by asking “Would you like to make a legend together 2?” The “2” at the end is because they presented the same line when recruiting for Majora’s Mask 3D, though it was not known that was the project at the time.

The natural inclination is to assume this will be a new Zelda project for the Switch, but that’s not necessarily the case. Grezzo’s founder, Koichi Ishii, is also the director of Secret of Mana and Legend of Mana when he was with Squaresoft, also known as the Seiken Densetu series in Japan, which also uses the same “Legend” titling. It is possible Grezzo is getting re-involved with the Mana series again, especially as it seems the studio’s latest game, the Nintendo-published Ever Oasis on the 3DS, did not light up the charts. Meanwhile, Square-Enix appears to be getting behind the Mana series again.

It’s worth noting that Grezzo has only developed games for Nintendo platforms as they are a 2nd-party developer. Hiring more programmers for staff may hint that a Nintendo Switch title is a likely case due to the technically advanced nature, the Nintendo Switch being very popular still in the beginning of its life as well as the unknown project being early in development , though it’s not concrete enough to know for sure.
