Zelda: Breath Of The Wild’s Champions’ Ballad DLC Launches Tonight

The much-anticipated second DLC expansion for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild finally has a release date. As part of The Game Awards, Nintendo revealed that The Champions’ Ballad releases tonight for Nintendo Switch and Wii U.

The presentation began with producer Eiji Aonuma wearing a Champion’s Tunic on stage, swinging the Master Sword. From there, a trailer ran that showcased each of the titular champions, a variety of new shrines, and new gear. You’ll still play as Link, but he has a new tool at his disposal–and it’s a really cool one.

The trailer ends with a look at the Master Cycle Zero, essentially a motorcycle that he can ride around Hyrule. You’ll get your hands on it once you complete the new challenges that await in this DLC. Aonuma described it as essentially being Link’s Divine Beast.

We’d previously gotten some brief looks at The Champions’ Ballad and learned that you would still play as Link, despite the focus on the titular Champions. It will feature a brand-new dungeon, gear, and an original story.

The DLC is only available through Breath of the Wild’s $20 / £18 expansion pass, which also provides access to the already-released DLC. That also offers access to The Master Trials, new outfits, a harder difficulty mode, and the Trial of the Sword.
