In Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain, players will have access to more than just a helpful, friendly sniper — the AI partner Quiet — during missions, they'll also have some help from a friendly wolf. At Tokyo Game Show today, series creator Hideo Kojima revealed DD, a wolf who can aid Snake during certain infiltrations in The Phantom Pain.

DD, short for Diamond Dog, can apparently be trained by Ocelot if players find the optional sidekick. Like Snake, he'll eventually wear an eyepatch.

Watch the above video for a look at The Phantom Pain's most precious new character.

Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain will come to PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Windows PC via Steam, Xbox 360 and Xbox One in 2015.
