So who would you lot like to make a comeback as a npc or a companion to Baldur's Gate 3 I would like have Minsc and Boo as a companion if I remember right he is still in the city of Baldur's Gate but I would also love to see Edwin as a female in Baldur's Gate 3 lol

Minsc and boo are probably a given as beeing the de facto mascots of the series and having shown up in other games like Neverwinter

I don't really understand why it looks so important for some.
I like some characters of BG of course but I don't really see the value at the moment except fan service.

I could be happy with only new charismatic characters smile

Well I would have no problem with only getting new companions but still I would like to see the old companions again

As long as it makes sense and isn't just lip service of course.

Well with a wish spell you could wish her body back and than wish for a true resurrection that's one way of getting back characters who have been long dead

We will probably meet Drizzt or Elminster, or even Jarlaxle (all were present as npcs in BG2), as they are a very known characters from Faerun. But if i had to choose , i would love to have Korgan , Viconia and Edwin again as companions :D

Korgan might show up, dwarves live for 350 years, and I don't think he was that old in BG2, maybe 196? I'm not sure about Viconia, though. Whether you romance her or not, her future does not guarantee her survival into the 5th Edition time frame, being a target of the Spider Queen and all. I like to think Edwin may have found a way to become a lich.

Didn't Edwin turn into a female after he foolishly challenged Elminster? anyway, i'm pretty sure we wont see these characters or any other Bg 1&2 characters for that matter. Maybe Minsc, since he became very iconic. I just hope that the new companions will be as memorable as the BG ones, or at least close.
