The penultimate blog post from Nintendo counting down to the release of DLC Pack 1 for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is now live. This post talks about how Majora’s Mask was added to DLC Pack 1 and what the mask does in game when Link has it equipped.
Hello, I’m Aonuma, producer of The Legend of Zelda™: Breath of the Wild.
DLC pack 1, The Master Trials will finally be released tomorrow, and today, I’m going to introduce you the final piece of equipment, Majora’s Mask. (This DLC is available only through the purchase of the Expansion Pass. Full version of the game is required to use this DLC.)
The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask was originally released for Nintendo 64™, and the remake was released for Nintendo 3DS™. Majora’s Mask is the scary, cursed mask mentioned in the game’s title.
When the development team started discussing including armor items associated with previous The Legend of Zelda games, I was the first one to speak up: “Please add Majora’s Mask!”
Zelda: Breath of the Wild – The Master Trials file size
The first DLC pack for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is just on the horizon. Nintendo will be distributing The Master Trials on Friday.
Nintendo’s Japanese website now shows how much space is needed for the DLC. On Switch, The Master Trials is a 456MB download. The Wii U version requires 3.7GB of free space.
It’s unclear why The Master Trials is such a bigger download on Wii U. It’s just a theory, but Switch might be able to handle more advanced file compression.

The next blog post from Nintendo counting down to the release of DLC Pack 1 for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is live. This one dives into the design of Midna from Twilight Princess, since Midna’s Helmet is one of the pieces of equipment included in DLC Pack 1.
Hello. I’m Takizawa, Art Director of The Legend of Zelda™: Breath of the Wild.
In DLC Pack 1: The Master Trials, players can find Midna’s Helmet in one of the chests hidden in the world (this DLC is only available through the purchase of the Expansion Pass).
Midna appeared in the Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess game for Wii and Nintendo GameCube, and she played an important role as Link’s partner. On the Wolf Link amiibo figure (which was released alongside the Wii U remake of the game, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD), she’s perching on Wolf Link.
