Nintendo has been regularly releasing new screenshots from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild to keep hype for the upcoming Wii U and Nintendo Switch game strong, and they released another new image today. At first glance it doesn’t appear to be much (as it just shows off an area we’ve already seen in past screenshots and footage), but upon closer inspection, it appears to reveal a returning character.

The screenshot (which you can view in full below) shows a man carrying a large bag on his back. The bag almost perfectly resembles a large beetle, right down to horns and markings where its wings would be. The man also appears to have reddish-brown hair, blue shorts, and red sandals. If all of this sounds familiar to you, that’s because it perfectly matches the description of Beedle, a traveling merchant who has appeared in past Zelda games like The Wind Waker, Phantom Hourglass, Spirit Tracks, and Skyward Sword.

In past games, Beedle has traveled the Great Sea, New Hyrule, and Skyloft in various boats and airships. We’ll likely encounter him peddling his goods throughout Hyrule in Breath of the Wild.
