Sounds like they might be gearing up to make Majora's Mask 3D more than a port with updated graphics. Exciting :eek:

Perhaps they're being allowed to make their own portable Zelda game, like Capcom used to?

Basically they've made both remakes and original stuff. Would you like to join us to make a legend?

They're looking for programmers and planners.

The title is "Don't you want to make a legend with us?"

Or, you know, Nintendo brought them in for asset generation on Zelda Wii U because making that game completely internally is crazy.

Pretty sure that's what's happening. Nintendo will need everyone they can get and more for this gig.

I was hoping that Irem's 95% finished Disaster Report/Raw Danger PS3 sequel would eventually see the light of day. I remember something about Grezzo (Irem's breakaway team) wanting to finish the project some day.

Maybe this is one of the Nintendo exclusive pickups that was hinted at.


They were called Granzella IIRC. Grezzo is managed by the gu who created the Mana series for Square.

That's what Monolith Kyoto and subcontractors like Bauhaus and Hexadrive are for. EAD hasn't made a Zelda completely internally since Spirit Tracks in 2009.

The text says they're hiring and tells a bit about their finished projects. It says they've made the Flower Streetpass game and the Ocarina of Time remake, so they've engaged in both original projects as well as remakes. It then says something about young people as well as veterans working to make quality products.

So no other noteworthy things in the text, unfortunately.

Just my two cents, but I actually saw (and StreetPassed iirc) quite a few employees from Grezzo at E3... about 4-6 of them, I believe. It was odd, because they weren't presenting any game at all (which is why I thought the mysterious 3DS game from the roundtable would be from them, but not MM3D because a 1h30 RT for a remake is really weird).

And for some reason, I was convinced they were already done with MM3D.

@sörine : don't forget 1-UP (ex- Brownie Brown), which became a 100% support studio a few years ago (leading some key people to leave).

EDIT: Ugh, beaten, was buried on the second page

Two listings on Grezzo's site for a programmer and planner.

Text in gold basically says "would you like to make a legend?" The word "legend" is highlighted.

Text below describes the opportunity, and identifies Grezzo's two past 3DS games (Ocarina of Time 3D and Flower Town from StreetPass Mii Plaza).

I guess this will be released somewhere around next year along the side of the wiiU game. Maybe the 3ds game early 2015 and the wiiU one late 2015

Noteworthy: the only two games they mention on that page are their two 3DS games.

Probably because it's the only noteworthy games they made. The other ones are a DL-only game on Wii (and I'm sure most people don't remember Line Attack Heroes), and a DSi port of 4 Swords (only available for a limited time).

On the other hand :

- Ocarina of Time 3D is a wonderful remake/port of one of the most famous VG ever
- the StreetPass game is not only their most recent game, but it was also quite successful (along with the other streetpass game, they earned Nintendo some serious dough during the first few weeks, and without any kind of advertisement).

And besides, only those two games are listed on the front page of the main page of their official website.

My guess is they're working on :

- MM3D (almost finished, to be announced later this year... probably in September/late August, not what this job offer is for)
- another game, may or may noit be Zelda related. Maybe a Zelda-related StreetPass game?

Reminder: they seem to have roughly 46 employees, so it's definitely a handheld project (if not just support for another Nintendo game, but I doubt it's that either).
