There’s a new trailer for The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom doing the rounds, and that means fans are digging to see what teases they can find. A rapidly emerging discovery is that the next game may feature a boss we haven’t seen in over 16 years.
It’s a bit of a “blink and you’ll miss it” situation, though at one point in the trailer you’ll see a large three-headed dragon crossing a bridge. Fans(Opens in a new tab) say (opens in a new tab) So (opens in a new tab) Gleeok, a multi-headed dragon that first appeared in the original The Legend of Zelda on the SNES in 1987. You’ll encounter Gleeok in various dungeons, though they may have two to three heads. The fight would play out the same way anyway: each head would drop after taking enough damage, to swing around the room and shoot fireballs at you, much like a Lernaen Hydra, if you like Greek mythology. .
Since then, we’ve only seen Gleeok in Oracle of Seasons in 2001 and Phantom Hourglass in 2007. Each riff is slightly different, though each fight generally plays out the same way.
Aside from Link’s fancy new car, one of the biggest talking points about The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is its next-gen price, mostly because it’s only releasing on a current-gen console. At $69.99, it’s the first time Nintendo has charged more than $59.99 for a standard version of the Switch. However, this does not mean that each new version costs the same. In a statement to Game Informer (opens in a new tab), Nintendo explained that pricing for each new game will be decided on a “case-by-case” basis.
