There will be no third DLC for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild after The Master Trials and Champions' Ballad, according to producer Eiji Aonuma.
Fans of the open-world adventure, however, may be slightly consoled by the fact that Nintendo has already started working on the next The Legend of Zelda game.
What's Next For 'The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild'?
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild director Hidemaro Fujibayashi recently provided insight into the future of the game.
"I can't say at this point if it will be in sequels or in continuations, or what form it will take, but I definitely have lots of ideas and lots of motivation right now," Fujibayashi said in an interview with IGN.
Many believed that more The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild DLCs made the most sense for what is coming next to the game, especially after the success of The Master Trials and Champions' Ballad.
However, it appears that there will be no third DLC. According to Aonuma, in a Japanese language interview with Famitsu, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is now finished after Champions' Ballad.
It now appears that the DLC that introduced Link's motorbike, the Master Cycle Zero, serves as the finale for one of the best games of the year.
The Master Trials and Champions' Ballad DLCs are only available through the season pass of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Nintendo did not indicate that more content will arrive after the two DLCs, and it is now confirmed that there will be none coming.
A New 'The Legend of Zelda' Game Coming Soon
The completion of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, however, does not mean that work on the franchise is taking a break. In a note from Aonuma in the official artbook titled The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Master Works, the producer revealed that the team has already started the development of the next The Legend of Zelda game.
Not much else is known about the project, but the timeline is not surprising, considering that work on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild started almost immediately after The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword was released for the Nintendo Wii in 2011.
However, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, as the launch title for the Nintendo Switch, has set a pretty high bar. The open-world adventure was named the Ultimate Game of the Year at this year's Golden Joystick Awards, and was also The Game of the Year at The Game Awards 2017. The next The Legend of Zelda game already has enormous shoes to fill.
