In a Japanese Breath of the Wild trailer posted today by YouTuber Dystify, the video reveals a never before seen creature that resembles an epic and nostalgic boss from Ocarina of Time, Volvagia. The dragon sports fiery scales, a feathery mane, bright green eyes, and what looks like large ears. Some of these characteristics can surely be shared with Volvagia, particularly the fiery traits and eye color.
Nintendo of America’s Twitter page also posted about the trailer, stating that “The new commercial for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in Japan features something we haven’t seen before…” The tweet blatantly displays a photo of the Volvagia-esque creature and many fans, who actively avoid spoilers, are unfortunately not too happy with it.
I, for one, am extremely excited. In my opinion, dragon-like bosses such as Volvagia, Gleeok, and Aquamentus have always been fun to fight. I absolutely love their designs and think that the inclusion of this character will make the game even more enjoyable. Besides, who can’t love those ears? It makes it so much cuter. There’s definitely a Falcor, from the Neverending Story, vibe going on here.
