New footage of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s upcoming story DLC has been released, and more narrative details have been confirmed by series producer Eiji Aonuma.
The developer has stated that you’ll still play as Link in the Champions’ Ballad expansion, but that you’ll learn more about Zelda along the way. Take a look at the new development footage.

Aonuma was speaking at a Zelda masterclass as part of Japan Expo in Paris. In addition to the story clip, it was confirmed that Link’s lobster shirt from The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker will return in The Champions’ Ballad, and another Zelda art book is on the way, focusing on Breath of the Wild. The two previous books in the series have focused on Hyrule’s history and The Legend of Zelda’s art.
The biggest addition, however, is the Trial of the Sword. Like the Cave of Ordeals from previous Zelda titles, this 45-room challenge tasks players by battling through a series of increasingly difficult encounters. You begin the Trial without any armour or equipment and can only fight using the weapons you acquire during the challenge.
