Once again, our esteemed Hero Link, has found himself with the opportunity to ride a motorcycle once again (Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe being the previous instances,) and having earned it myself, I knew what I must do!

Now that we’ve got our Bayonetta 1 to 3 Digest out of the way, let’s talk, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild!
As some had suspected, whilst also at The Game Awards 2017, the release date for the Champions’ Ballad DLC was in fact revealed and it is out now already now that the show is over. You will need to update your game to version 1.4.0 in order to play it, but given the new dungeon it adds, added story and a motorcycle Link can ride around on in Hyrule, you are definitely going to want to play and buy the DLC if you never brought the Expansion Pass before. Below we will be sharing a trailer for the DLC, footage of some of it in action, part of the press release that concerns it and an official overview: Continue reading A Complete Zelda: Champion’s Ballad DLC is Out Now Digest (Overview & Footage)
If you haven’t yet, a new update is now available for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and it is worth downloading. Not only does it add the new Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Side Quest that will allow you to earn Rex’s costume, but there’s also support for the Champions amiibo:
The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild Version 1.3.3 / DLC Version 2.1:
- Added support for the Revali / Daruk / Urbosa / Mipha amiibo.
- Xenoblade Chronicles 2 side quest and collaboration equipment added.
- Fixed an issue with Hero’s Path Mode in which “x marks” weren’t recorded with version 1.3.0 or later.
- Various fixes to improve the gameplay experience
Only instead of just hitting you with the game’s patch notes, we will also be sharing a video from GameXplain that will show you how to get the new Salvager gear, if you’re in a hurry and have no time to look and figure it all out for yourself:
Oh, Xenoblade Chronicles 2, what are you doing to us today?
If Zelda fans didn’t get enough news regarding new content for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, today (new side-quest with new costume available as a prize being distributed on November 9th) it’s time for some less official news. According to an updated listing of Breath of the Wild in the European Switch eShop, the Champions’ Ballad DLC Pack that adds a new dungeon, original story and new challenges, is due out in December.
By no means is this official confirmation, as for now it is circumstantial, but like Nintendo has said time and time again, the second DLC pack will be out this year and with just November and December left, next month is as good a time as any to bring it out. But until Nintendo officially come out and give us a date, which they will do soon enough, for now nothing is set in stone.

With the Champions wave of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild amiibo set to roll out next week, besides a few known facts about them, there’s still more to learn. Luckily for us though, Nintendo has taken it upon themselves to clue us all in thanks to a new post on Facebook. Here’s what they had to say:
For those of you hoping to improve your weapon catching abilities in Zelda: Breath Of The Wild, BOTW Director Hidemaro Fujibayashi has taken to the Nintendo Switch News section to give you their latest tip, Practice Catching skills. The weapon in question is the boomerang but it can also be used as a distraction as well as a weapon and to top it off, you will also be given a free boomerang weapon. You can read the full post which we have extracted from the Nintendo Switch News Section below.
Capcom have released a new video that show that Monster Hunter Double Cross on Nintendo Switch will be getting Legend of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild DLC. This will allow your character to don the Champions Tunic and dress your Felyne companion up as a Korok. You can see for yourself in the video below.
Monster Hunter Double Cross is currently only available for Japan so we in the West will have to wait a little longer to see if Capcom will launch it over here as well, along with the DLC of course.
Nintendo have updated their News Channel with another tip for Zelda: Breath Of The Wild. This time, Game Director Hidemaro Fujibayashi gives us a tip to prolong stamina. It is one of the most simplest of recipes and by opening up the game, you can get two free combs of courser bee honey to use in the recipe. Here is the full tip post from the Switch News Channel.
Nintendo UK Have uploaded a new trailer to their YouTube Channel which shows the many wonderful games you can play on their latest console and where you can play them too if you are looking to take your gaming on the go.

Our Friends over at Hyrule Herald & Ready Gamer One are hosting a charity fund raising event and giveaway to help raise money for Camp Sunshine which is a retreat for children with life threatening illnesses and their families. Their goal is to raise $1000 for the charity and will be giving away a Nintendo Switch with The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild. You can check out their Full Announcement below
Hyrule Herald & Ready Gamer One Looking to Raise $1000 for Camp Sunshine Fundraiser
The Hyrule Herald and it’s podcast, Ready Gamer One, are looking to raise $1000 for Camp Sunshine, a retreat for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families in an online fundraiser.
Camp Sunshine was started in 1984 with the mission of providing retreats combing respite, recreation, and support and enabling hope and joy for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families throughout the various stages of any child’s illness. With sessions offered year round, Camp Sunshine books sessions that cater to the entire family, which includes on-site medical, psychological, and offers bereavement sessions for families coping for the loss of a child from a supported illness.
Starting Monday, August 14th, The Hyrule Herald will initiate the online fundraiser with a free Nintendo amiibo giveaway on their Facebook page. Once live, the fundraiser will function as an online raffle, meaning that every $1 donated, the entrant is guaranteed two “raffle tickets” that will be drawn at random throughout the week.
So there’s no confusion, if someone were to donate $5, they’d receive 10 tickets, $10, 20 tickets, $20, 40 tickets, and so on. There’s no limit to how much someone can donate. Also, a ticket has been drawn, that does not mean if there were more tickets in the mix, that the other tickets are taken out of the drawing. The more you donate, the better your chances to keep winning!
“We’re hoping people will donate for this awesome cause,” says Lucas Corbitt, managing editor of The Hyrule Herald. “Ben has done his his homework in selecting a great organization that will benefit children and their families. How could a Nintendo fan-site not choose this organization for a fundraiser?”
The grand prize for the giveaway is a brand new Nintendo Switch console and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild collector’s edition. The full fundraiser prize roster is below:
- Hyrule Herald Admin for A Day
- Ready Gamer One Special Guest Host for An Episode
- Up to 8 World of Nintendo Collectible Figures
- Up to 10 Random amiibo
- Nintendo eShop Cards
- GameStop Gift Cards
- Splatoon 2 for the Nintendo Switch
- Two 3DS Titles
- The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD for the WiiU with Wolf Link+Midna amiibo
- The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for the Nintendo Switch
- Nintendo Switch + The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Collector’s Edition
Both The Hyrule Herald staff and Ready Gamer One staff have equally agreed to participate in milestone challenges for this fundraiser event. After a milestone dollar amount is meant in the fundraiser, our staff members will participate in different challenges for fun.
“Even after just a few hundred dollars are raised, my amazing staff has agreed to participate in some form of a mildly humiliating challenge that harkens back to the glory days of Nickelodeon,” says Ben Cornett, owner of The Hyrule Herald and Ready Gamer One. “When choosing Camp Sunshine and seeing their mission statement is about benefiting not only children, but their families and to make lasting memories, all I can think back is to being a kid and enjoying TV time with my family, which either alternated on some exciting NES game play or something on Nickelodeon or Disney.”
“A lot of us that worked together previously did these kind of challenges and what not before, and if it’s to raise money for charity, I welcome a pie in the face,” added Lucas Corbitt. “I have no problem looking silly if it’ll get us to our goal.”
The goal is set to $1000. When asked if the goal is not met, Mr. Cornett replied, “Unfortunately if we don’t get to the $1000 mark, then we’re not giving away the Switch. It doesn’t mean we’re not donating raised money to Camp Sunshine. We’re going to provide them whatever we raised, but I don’t like to think like that. I have faith in Nintendo fans. When it comes to benefiting children, most Nintendo fans will spare more than a dollar.”
“This fundraiser gives our brands a chance to stand up and be a beacon of hope. Ben tires to instill that philosophy into all of us that work with him,” says Branden Loera, Host of Ready Gamer One. “He always leads by example and I know for him, it’s not about how many likes, follows, re-tweets, or click-bait articles can get out there. For him, it’s about making a difference in the world and inspiring others to do so, too.”
When asked why he settled on Camp Sunshine, Mr. Cornett replied: “Camp Sunshine came to my attention when working on a project for my actual job. I had the great pleasure of working with the very talented and energetic Tomm Polos, and he opened up to me about Camp Sunshine and the charity work he previously did for them. Mr. Polos inspired me to choose this organization with his selfless act of giving and the hard work he put himself through in running up the Empire State Building. The least we can do is take a cue from him and inspire others.”
Winners for the contest will be announced through the week of the event. Once the winner is contacted and announced, they will have 24 hours to claim their prize before a re-draw occurs. All prizes will ship in September 2017.
For more information, stay tuned to our various social media channels and our podcast, Ready Gamer One.
To get the Zelda: Breath Of The Wild- Tips From The Wild news channel off to a good start, Director Hidemaro Fujibayashi has posted a tip on befriending the dogs you can meet on your travels around Hyrule. Though most of you may know this little nugget, there are those that may not know or have only recently picked up a copy of the game.
If you stay close enough to a dog long enough and give it food, it will come to like you and may lead you to treasure. To help players try out this trick, you can get free food items just by launching the game whilst on the post. You can read the full message in full below. Please note that this only works with the Switch version of the game.
