Assassin's Creed Odyssey may still be a couple of days away from release, but that hasn't stopped the discovery of an adorable little easter egg within the game which relates to a certain open-world hero of Nintendo fame.

The folks over at Kotaku have stumbled across this adorable little find while exploring everything the new game has to offer. Naturally, if you don't want this to be spoiled, you might want to avoid reading the next paragraph or checking out the video below.

Should you wish to venture over to the middle of Pandora’s Cove, just off the coast of Malis, you should find a tiny, lone island close enough to swim over to. On the sand, there's a little fire, presumably set up by a recent traveller, but exploring just beyond that results in an awesome little discovery. Check it out for yourself down below.

Yes, climbing up behind this fire reveals a new area containing a circle of rocks and a cute little figure of a Korok from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Ubisoft has confirmed to Kotaku that it is indeed a reference to the game, presumably thanks to an element of inspiration taken from the title or as a nod of respect to a game which captured the hearts of many around the world in recent times.

If you'll be picking up Assassin's Creed Odyssey, make sure to find the Korok for yourself!
