First Footage For The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild’s Story DLC Has Surfaced


Nintendo has released the first snippet of footage for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild‘s second add-on, revealing that Link will be returning from the base game as the playable character.

Prior to today’s confirmation, many had suspected that DLC 2 – or Champion’s Ballad, as it’s officially known – would replace Hyrule’s hero with a different protagonist, with Princess Zelda out in front as the favorite. Alas, that doesn’t appear to be the case, although Nintendo did promise that the expansion will dive deeper into Zelda’s backstory, so you can likely expect the would-be monarch to feature quite heavily throughout the newly-penned story.

As for the aforementioned gameplay, it arrived today via Nintendo of Europe and you can check it out for yourselves below.

Admittedly, there’s not much to be gleaned from the clip, although it is set predominantly in and around Gerudo Town, the female-only settlement Link infiltrates during his quest to destroy Ganon. We’ll have to wait and see whether the events seen above hold any real significance for Champion’s Ballad’s story, but to tide us over until then, Nintendo did share some additional details in regards to new items being introduced with the upcoming content.

It’s not quite on the same level of style as the Majora’s Mask headgear or armor sets introduced with Breath of the Wild‘s first DLC, but no doubt a welcome addition for Wind Waker fans.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild launched back in March alongside the Switch and ultimately proved to be the hybrid console’s killer app. For those yet to discover what makes Link’s latest adventure so special, you can find our glowing review right here.
