Previously we mentioned a screenshot showing a lone wanderer in front of what seems to be a merchant's hut. Now, thanks to Game Informer, we have a clear image of the character revealing that the adorable purveyor of goods - Beedle - will be returning.

Beedle will be making his sixth appearance in the Zelda universe after making his debut in Wind Waker and most recently in Skyward Sword for the Wii. The merchant can now be found sporting an enormous backpack full of all sorts of products that he will no undoubtedly overcharge for.

A couple of other interesting screens from the gallery show a dungeon boss and Link riding a horse, for instance.

The Game Informer magazine goes into quite a bit of detail on how some in-game economies and mechanics work, including horses. We'll leave some things as surprises, but you can grab a download or physical copy of the issue if you want the details right from the source.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will be releasing simultaneously on the Nintendo Switch and Wii U on 3rd March worldwide.
