Zelda2

We have no idea when it'll launch, what it'll end up being called, or even what it will be about, but The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 is already one of the most anticipated Switch games for many. With the first one receiving more praise than a cute dog performing backflips, it's not hard to see why, either.

We've put together a full guide to everything we know and everything we've guessed so far - including our thoughts on a potential release window - but this latest news might add a little more confusion into the mix. Monolith Soft, the developer behind series such as Xenoblade and indeed a partner to Nintendo on the original Breath of the Wild, is still hiring for new Zelda staff on its official site.

We first heard about the studio recruiting for a Zelda title back in March, with the Breath of the Wild sequel being a safe bet for the game in question. According to Japanese Nintendo, which has provided a translation of the recruitment site's job titles, Monolith Soft is still looking for Technical Artists, Programmers, Planners, Designers, and Management Support.

So what's happening? Is the project growing to be larger than first anticipated? Are these entirely new positions, or were the original slots never filled? Is this a sign that we're still a long way away from getting our hands on the game, or is it a sign of one final push?

Here's hoping we get some fresh info in the new year.
