Zelda: Breath of the Wild – The Champions’ Ballad DLC slated for December
It’s been somewhat of a mystery as to when The Champions’ Ballad DLC for Zelda: Breath of the Wild will be launching. The only concrete window Nintendo has given is “Holiday 2017”.
The European Switch eShop seems to have a clearer answer. On a listing for the DLC, Nintendo says that The Champions’ Ballad is planned for December.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s new DLC pack features a new dungeon, an original story, and more new challenges. Hopefully we’ll be getting more details in the weeks ahead.

Zelda: Breath of the Wild Switch item distribution (11/1/17)
Nintendo is still going strong with their weekly Breath of the Wild item distribution. In order to get the free items, of course, you need to be subscribed to the official news channel. If you’re subscribed, you should start getting friendly messages from Fujibayashi, the director of the game.
This week, Mr. Fujibayashi’s gift includes all the ingredients to make a mighty salt-grilled crab. These are as follows: Razorclaw Crab, Mighty Porgy, Mighty Bananas, and Rock Salt. Just start the game from the notification launch button in order to get all this.
The director leaves us with a set of instructions: “Cook these ingredients together for the powerful dish.”

Rumor: Zelda: Breath of the Wild getting Explorer’s bundle
Posted on 1 month ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in Rumors, Switch | 11 Comments | 0 Likes
Link’s Hideaway claims to have obtained information about a new bundle for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. A supplier listing indicates that the game will be getting an “Explorer’s” bundle on November 23. The UPC and manufacturer part number are different from the original launch version, further suggesting that this is an entirely new package.
As for what’s in the bundle, it’ll come with the game, a two-sided map, and Explorer’s Guide with lore and learnings. The listing does not make mention of any DLC.
If the listing is accurate, this new bundle will cost $59.99.
Aonuma also says that the next Zelda: Breath of the Wild DLC pack is still coming this year
Earlier in the week, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime said that the next Zelda: Breath of the Wild DLC pack is still on track for this year. We also heard that a release date would be shared soon.
If that wasn’t enough, Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma has also reconfirmed that the DLC will be out by the end of 2017. A random video posted on Nintendo Australia’s YouTube channel today has Aonuma saying that the team is “working on it with great effort” and to “please hold on just a little longer”. He also says explicitly that the DLC “will also be available by the end of this year”.
