    The Champions' Ballad is far from what we were expecting, especially story-wise, but any excuse is a good one to return to Breath of the Wild's Hyrule. The new shrines are great, and everything that happens at the end make up for any of the not-so-good elements.

    As inessential as most story DLC tends to be, but despite a few unwanted encores this is still an entertaining, if unnecessary, story expansion.

    It slumps in the middle but rebounds with a soaring finale. Breath of the Wild’s latest adventure is well worth the time and effort, ending on on a triumphant high.

    Compared with Witcher 3 DLCs - the work from nintendo is horrible
    saddly all DLCs does not change the ending.

    Content overview: Find 4 MetaShrines finish for each Metashrine 3 challenges and 3 shrines, go to the last dungeon. DLC is done ... Not funny and not good

    Even though this DLC is not as big as Blood and Wine, considering that it is just 10 bucks, I would say it fulfilled my expectation. TheEven though this DLC is not as big as Blood and Wine, considering that it is just 10 bucks, I would say it fulfilled my expectation. The volume of the DLC seems to be 8-10 hours which is good enough and new dungeons and stories were very interesting and the final boss was much better than Calamity Ganon. However, it seems like new costumes just act as new fashion without being useful which I think it would be better if I can actually use them in gameplay. Full Review »
