Today, Nintendo published a blog post about The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on the official blog of the Legend of Zelda portal in Japan. This time, the post is from Eiji Aonuma, Producer of the Legend of Zelda series. He’s here to talk about the Master Class that was held at the Japan Expo a few weeks ago (click here for the full recap of the event!).
Last month, Eiji Aonuma took part in a Master Class at the Japan Expo event in Paris, France, called The Art of the Legend of Zelda series. Here’s a picture of the Master Class, with Satoru Takizawa (Art Director) and Yusuke Nakano (who drew the illustrations for the Battle of Ganon), who have both worked on several other Zelda games previously:
During this Master Class, some details about the second DLC pack for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, called The Champions’ Ballad, releasing this Winter.
First, there showed the video below. After watching it, you might be tempted to think that you finally get to play as Zelda… but it’s not the case! You still play as Link, though you do get to know a lot more about her in this DLC.
This DLC Pack will also include the same Lobster shirt that Links wears in The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. As a matter of fact, Eiji Aonuma himself was wearing on stage during the Master Class!
Eiji Aonuma explains that equipment related to other Legend of Zelda game will also be added, with more details coming at a later date.
Here’s the recording of the Master Class, uploaded earlier today by Nintendo France. Unfortunately, it’s only available in French at the moment, but hopefully a subbed version will follow pretty soon. If and when it’s uploaded, it will be added to this post!
FInally, here’s special illustrations made for the Master Class at Japan Expo, all inspired by various French things:
