Daruk’s entry in Breath of the Wild’s opening game may have accidentally revealed some story details about its next sequel.
Breath of the Wild 2 is the highly anticipated sequel to Nintendo’s open world action title Breath of the wild. While Breath of the Wild 2 recently been delayed in early 2023, fans are still enthusiastically speculating about the game. Mostly, the game’s narrative feels quite shrouded in mystery, like the ending Breath of the wild he saw Calamity Ganon defeated and order somehow restored in apocalyptic Hyrule. It now appears that a voice actor for the upcoming title may have accidentally leaked information about a character within Breath of the Wild 2 history. Fans should be forewarned that there are potential spoilers below.
Italian voice actor Pietro Ubaldi originally voiced the Goron Daruk champion Breath of the wild. Daruk appears as one of the old champions of Hyrule, who could not stop Calamity Ganon 100 years before the events of Breath of the wild take place. Like the other fallen heroes Revali, Mipha and Urbosa, Daruk can guide Link on his quest to restore all the Divine Beasts to their former glory and save Hyrule.
However, in addition to voicing Daruk, Ubaldi has stated that he will also voice Daruk’s ancestor. Daruk ends Breath of the wild in the afterlife, although in advance he is able to speak to Link at certain times, which means that an ancestor of Daruk could play a similar role. At the moment it is not known what Daruk’s ancestor will look like Breath of the Wild 2but it is assumed that the character does not appear physically, unless the game makes Link travel back in time.
Some fans initially believed that Daruk’s ancestor could be Darunia, the Goron patriarch who appears in Ocarina of the time. Ubaldi has made it clear that the ancestor he is voicing is not Darunia, which means that the character will be another member of the Goron people. Ubaldi also didn’t give a specific name to the ancestor, stating that he couldn’t remember it, but said this role was more serious than his previous time playing Daruk.
Fans are currently speculating that Daruk’s ancestor could lead to another story revolving around the Divine Beasts and that Ubaldi’s new character could be the original Divine Beast Rudania pilot from millennia ago. Daruk’s ancestry is likely to be only a small feature of Breath of the Wild 2 new map and expansive story, as series producer Eiji Aonuma promised The breath of the wild the sequel will allow you to play both on the ground and in the skies above.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 will be released in the spring of 2023 for the Nintendo Switch.
