Beedle was one of the more memorable additions to recent Zelda games, showing up in all the Toon Link games, along with Skyward Sword. The quirky merchant is always on the move, be it by boat or hot air balloon, and becomes a familiar face in your travels through the overworld. Sure, his prices can be outrageous at times, but at least there's loyalty program benefits if you keep coming back to stock up on supplies.

Nintendo has been posting screenshots of Breath of the Wild over the past few months in the lead up to release, and the latest screenshot seems to show that the lovable salesman will be opening up shop yet again in the new game. As you can see in the screenshot above, Link is chilling outside a decidedly equestrian hut, while a suspiciously similar character approaches from the left with a beetle-shaped backpack. It wouldn't be entirely surprising if Beedle made a return appearance, but we can't help but wonder what kind of vehicle he'll utilize this time around.

What do you think? Would you like Beedle to return? What other traditional series aspects do you hope to see in this game? Drop us a comment in the section below.
