The Champions Ballad

If you’ve been waiting on tenterhooks to play The Champions’ Ballad, the second DLC for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, your wait is over. Nintendo released the DLC tonight with a surprise announcement during the Game Awards along with a trailer that shows Link riding a motorcycle. A motorcycle! Watch below:

It’s not the first time we’ve had a surprise release during a major gaming show, but I’ve got to say that I’m still tickled to see something so flashy from Nintendo, even if the company does seem to be up to all sorts of new tricks these days. The company had previously said that the DLC would be dropping in December, but had been cagey about details ever since the initial announcement: now we know why.

Champions’ Ballad revolves around the four Champions whose spirits Link had to save in the base game -Revali, Daruk, Mipha and Urbosa. It will include story sequences that dive deeper into their pasts, though it seems you’ll still be playing as Link. It will also include new shrines on the World Map, new weapons and, as previously mentioned, a motorcycle. It sounds a little more in line with what fans want than The Master Trials, a somewhat scattershot collection of content that dropped earlier in the year.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild took home three awards at the show, including Game of the Year. The Champions’ Ballad is big news for Nintendo fans, but it’s also a big get for the Game Awards, which continues to cement itself as the pre-eminent award show in gaming.
