Nintendo has announced that they will be holding a The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild live stream on Japanese video service NicoNico on December 12th at 9PM JST. The main purpose of this stream seems to be a segment called “Player’s Voice”, during which experiences, stories and adventures by players from their time with Breath of the Wild will be shared. Of course, given the timing of this stream, it’s also possible that this will be the first time we get to see the upcoming Champions’ Ballad DLC, which at the moment still has a fairly vague release window of “December”. It’s not a certainty by any means that this live stream will talk about the DLC in any way, but if they do, you will hear about it from us.
