Nintendo Shares Brief Footage Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild's Champions' Ballad DLC
Last week saw the release of Breath of the Wild's first batch of DLC, The Master Trials. We don't know much about the next DLC, The Champions' Ballad, but at The Art of The Legend of Zelda Series Masterclass at Japan Expo, a few more details were revealed.
We now know that you will be playing as Link in the DLC, despite the emphasis that has so far been placed on game's Champions. You can also check out about 17 seconds of a cutscene from the DLC featuring Zelda visiting Gerudo below.

We also now know that Link's lobster shirt from The Wind Waker will part of the DLC.

The Nintendo Europe twitter tweeted account tweeted some additional details about Zelda unrelated to the Breath of the Wild DLC, like its plans for an Art and Artifacts art book covering Breath of the Wild.
