It seems more and more news keeps getting released about Spirit Tracks every day. This time around we may possibly have the name of the Demon King. It is speculated that the Demon Train is indeed the Demon King, but there really has been no evidence to connect the two. Does the name shed some light on the situation? Hop inside to find out.
According to the Official Spanish Spirit Tracks site, the name of the Demon King is Mallard. Mallard has two potential meanings in this case. First off, a Mallard is another name for a duck. That is the most commonly known meaning, and the most easily recognizable. However, there is another connection that may be more relevant to the actual game.
The 4468 Mallard, a steam train that holds the world record for speed, shares the same name. Notably, with the inclusion of trains in Spirit Tracks, it’s a connection worth mentioning. So weather Nintendo teamed up with Disney to bring Donald Duck, Scrooge McDuck, or heck possibly even Thomas the Train, no one really knows. What we do know at this point is that his official name is Mallard, so take from that what you will.
Here’s hoping we get more of this:
Or, if we are so lucky, we may get this:
Thanks goes to Zelda Universe for discovering this for us.
