Zelda: Breath of the Wild – The Champions’ Ballad DLC slated for December

Posted on November 7, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch, Wii U

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.

      The trickle as turned into a flood. You know when you wish for rain to end a drought? And then a flood comes?
      Yeah…like that. But less tragic….

  • burchdude65

    Full reveal at The Game Awards, perhaps?

    • Devlind

      I would prefer a proper trailer for MP4, but that would be great too.

    I saw another article saying that Japan will get it November 23 rd

    • Devlind

      No, it was never confirmed. A card to buy the expansion pass will be out in Nov 23, but it doesn’t mention anywhere that that’s the launch date. People speculated about it just because of that, just like when the amiibo launch date was announced.

    My two hopes for the DLC are:
    #1: That we get the Bow of light for normal gameplay, either as the last dungeon’s reward, or at the starting point in the questline, since as an epilogue, you should technically already have it. It irks me that the final Bow slot is reserved for something you only have during the final boss.
    At the very least, they could have let you keep it on a cleared save a la the Fierce Deity’s Mask in Majora’s Mask.
    It could be greyed out and unusable for all I care, just do it.
    (Both it and the Master Sword have their own slot that opens up when you obtain them, but you get to keep one, and the other is only there in the ending. Without it, the Bow tab has 19/20 slots opened up. Every other equip tab can at least be expanded to have all 20 squares, and all other tabs always have 20 squares anyway)
    #2: that we get more armor slots.
    We can only carry 100 pieces of armor, and this is how many pieces of armor that we currently know will be in the game as of Champion’s Ballad.

    The announcement of rex’s clothes sealed it. Theres no way that they’re only adding three new pieces in the final DLC.
    the first one had 9.
    I could see five, but definitely not 3 new pieces

    • JasonBall

      Yeah that armor slot thing really has me worried.

    • Devlind

      Time to sell the bokoblin, lizalfos, moblin and lynel masks.

  • NinetalesCommander

    I’m expecting there to be at least 1 more Nintendo Direct this year which will go over the details for this DLC Pack.

    • Re4gNarsil

      I highly doubt there’ll be any more directs this year, unless they have one special one for the Zelda dlc. The next real direct will be very early 2018.

  • 23PQ

    Maybe the release date is 12/15 to coincide with the Master Works art book.

  • masterjedi

    I am very excited about this. Continuing the story from Breath of the Wild is just so appealing to me. I did not do anything with the first DLC because harder difficulties are not my thing, but I am absolutely all in on the new story for DLC pack 2.

    • Master Mode is better because it gives you more enemies to fight and delays the point at which Link becomes an unkillable god.

  • Well, it was pretty obvious it will be released at december, why some people are surprised?
