Eiji Aonuma was on hand at The Game Awards 2017 to unveil the second part of the Breath of the WildThe Champions’ BalladThe Champions’ Ballad focuses on the fallen champions, including Princess Zelda, who perished fighting Ganon 100 years ago. The story is said to focus on Princess Zelda, although Link is still the playable character.

The trailer showed off a number of different locales, as well as each of the champions in corporeal form. This causes one to wonder, does this piece of story-based DLC take place in the past, or does it take place in the present? The screenshots of Zelda in an unruined Hyrule Castle with her Father, the King, suggests there are at least flashbacks in this second Zelda DLC pack.

 

The locales showed in the trailer also seem to show off the brand new dungeon that is promised. As someone who loves puzzles and dungeons, I am very hopeful. Link was also shown wearing a Ravio and Ganondorf mask. Daruk, Mipha, Urbosa, and Revali are all shown in combat in real-time; whether or not this was in the past or not is unknown.

And finally, Link is seen riding his very own motorcycle, which was joked to be his very own Divine Beast called the “Master Cycle Zero”. Maybe they can put it into Mario Kart 8 Deluxe!?
