Today's trailer confirms the return of the game's diminutive Korok characters, which look like they'll be once again hidden for you to find.

It also includes - and gives a voice to - Hestu, the giant maraca-wielding Korok who expanded your Breath of Wild inventory in exchange for you collecting the game's many hidden Korok Seeds. (Collect every seed in the game and Hestu rewarded you with a giant glittering turd. No, really.)

Earlier trailers showed off yet more Breath of the Wild characters set for a return, including younger versions of Sheikah researchers Purah and Robbie, as well as the villainous Yiga Clan.
