The Legend of Zelda


 

The second set of DLC for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has already stirred up speculation that Princess Zelda would be the playable character for the new story component, but the game’s producer has cleared up any hope.

Speaking at the Japan Expo, Breath of the Wild producer Eiji Aonuma announced alongside the brief new footage of the upcoming DLC that Link will remain the playable character. However, he also revealed Zelda will be pivotal in the storyline for “The Champions’ Ballad”, which will act as a prequel to the events of the main game, following Zelda, Link, Urbosa, Mipha, Daruk, and Revali on the journey to defeat Ganon.

The addition of voice acting to the first open world Zelda game created a new experience for players of the franchise, with an additional deep backstory for the princess herself. In turn, the expansion on the iconic character left fans wondering if she could receive a playable chapter in Breath of the Wild‘s story. While this wasn’t the news most were hoping to hear, perhaps Nintendo can capitalize on the gusto for Zelda’s character and create a proper standalone title—not just another Spirit Tracks. Nintendo also revealed Link’s lobster shirt from Wind Waker will be available in the DLC, adding to the first DLC’s new accessories, which include Majora’s Mask, the Phantom armor, and Tingle’s skin-tight outfit.

There is no set release date for The Champions’ Ballad DLC, but the first set, known as The Master Trials, is now available for both the Wii U and Switch versions of Breath of the Wild.
