Italian voice actor Pietro Ubaldi, the goron champion Daruk of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, shared in a recently recorded interview that he will be playing a new character in the upcoming sequel.
The reporter talks to Ubaldi and confirms that the voice actor plays Daruk’s ancestor, whose exact name he cannot remember. All he can remember is that the character is “slightly more serious” than Daruk. The reporter asks if the character is Darunia, a Goron from Ocarina of Time, but Ubaldi denies this, saying that he doesn’t remember the names very well.
It’s the first sign of a new character in the Breath of the Wild sequel, which is set to be released in the spring of next year. If the character is an ancestor of the first game’s champion Daruk, it is possible that this ancestor is the Goron champion who steered the divine beast 10,000 years ago.
While this information is not a definitive confirmation or official announcement, it is not unreliable as Pietro Ubaldi is a well-known voice actor; Not only did he voice the characters in the original Breath of the Wild, but he is also known for the Italian voices of Patrick Starr from SpongeBob SquarePants, Doraemon from Doraemon, and Reinhardt from Overwatch.
Unless Nintendo decides to share more details about the Breath of the Wild sequel via its official channels, this bite-sized detail is the most recent news about the game at the end of March. Hopefully, more important news awaits us around the corner.
