The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild promised fans two packs of DLC, and while the first released several months ago, we’re still waiting for any news on the second. According to the latest word from Nintendo, though, we may not have to wait much longer.
This second DLC, dubbed The Champions’ Ballad, will be a prequel to the main game, focusing on Link, Zelda, and the original champions. Those four champions just so happen to be getting a set of Amiibo figurines on November 10th. Sadly, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aimé shot down the theory that the DLC would release alongside the Amiibo, but in the process, he gave us a better idea of the window when we can expect the DLC.
“We will shortly be announcing the date for [The Champions’ Ballad] content,” Fils-Aimé told Kotaku. “So I would not lock and load on November 10th.”
However, Nintendo’s stated plan has been for the DLC to release before the end of the year, and Fils-Aimé didn’t say anything about Nintendo’s plans changing. Put together, that means that we can likely expect to see The Champions’ Ballad release sometime between November 10th and the end of the year (or, let’s be real, before the start of the holiday shopping season).
Fils-Aimé said that more news should be coming soon, so be sure to check back for updates.
