Yeah that crossed my head a lot. It’s essentially just DLC saying the champions were like this and oh here’s Kass. Accompanied with their respective character dumps in their diaries. It would have been better had it just been integrated into the original game rather than tacked on at the end.

But I suppose that’s fitting for BotW lol.

So I've been slowly working my way through Champion's Ballad, not as much as I would have liked but I sadly have other things to do

From what I have played it's been great, it's added more difficulty and even though it's doing this by just taking your items I still appreciate it. I enjoyed this game more when I had fewer resources to work with but by the 3rd or 4th Divine Beast I had full stamina and overpowered weapons, which made the "magic" kind of fade for me.
The first part of the DLC removed these issues by adding the obliterator weapon and I enjoyed dying often (sounds weird but it's true), using my limited arrows and the terrain to my advantage. It forced me to think more creatively when fighting which is awesome!
My only complaint with that section was that I didn't like how the great plateau became like the lost woods, I died several times just due to the mist and the song always freaks me out...

Apart from that I just completed the Vah Ruta/Mipha section and I found it really fun! I like how everything is integrated into the base game and you can see a little into what happens after the Divine Beasts. The riddles were fun but the illusory rematches were just meh, I didn't love them the first time so a rematch didn't do much for me. Not looking forward to fighting Thunderblight Ganon again but I'll do it to unlock as many of the cutscenes with Champions as I can get, it's one of my main reasons to finish Champion's Ballad. They're so good even if they make me slightly emotional, and that was only after Mipha's, Urbosa and Revali will make me a wreck!

I'd also like to add that the new shrines are some of the best in the game...at least in my opinion. They are some of the most creative so far and they have a good difficulty level from what I've seen.

...as for the motorbike, it seems cool but I'm not sure how much I'll use it. I like the look of it though, I hope it has some backstory instead of "here's a bike, enjoy!" but we'll see...

I usually write WAAAAY TOO MUCH!
...so I'll apologise now in advance.

@Anti-Matter: You don't have access to the Champion's Ballad DLC main quest until you beat all 4 titans of the base game. There are 6 sidequests available instantly however.

How far are you into the base game?

As for the difficulty: Just save before every challenging situation and you'll have as many chances as you want to try different things.

I wouldn't buy the expansion pass before I've played through the main game. The first DLC pack was great, and while I had some complaints about the second one, it was also good. So if you buy a Switch with Zelda, then if you like it I would recommend the expansion pass after you've beaten the game.

After you've finished the DLC, go back to your house in Hateno. I just discovered a lovely little moment for myself.

So, this story DLC doesn't have much story in it. Gotta say I'm a kinda disappointed in what I've played so far

Still haven't got to the point where I can access it on my new save yet.

But from everything I've seen and read, the "story" just adds a bit more detail to the main game. As opposed to being a new story being set in the same world.

Mixed feelings about that. I think for the long term replayability factor, something like that's good. Just makes the main experience longer and meatier. But for the interest factor right now, a new story might've been more striking.

Converted from Sony to Nintendo during 7th gen and never looked back.

Just finished The Champion's Ballad story missions, although it doesn't add that much new stuff, I really appreciate the added 5 memory cutscenes, and the final fight with the monk was honestly pretty crazy and surprising to me.

I'm yet to start the new side quests and I still need to do the last Master Sword trial from DLC Pack 1, but I personally feel like my $20 was well spent.

Well so far I think it's hugely disappointing, I've done what I guess would be a quarter of it and all I seem to have done is basically the exact same things I already had in the main game. Seriously the Medoh part consists of doing the shooting range again, shooting the big red fire Dragon again and sliding down a hill again, your reward? Oh you can now fight that boss again 😐 It doesn't really feel like dlc and the little that is new feels like it should have been added as updates.

I'm just hoping the new divine beast makes up for it but I guess ìll have to replay many other parts first to find out. For the next game they really need to go back to dungeons because they were much more fun than these and some variety in the bosses please.

I have loved this game as an open world game but as a Zelda game I feel it's lost more than its gained

I was also hoping for actual new content, as in a new area of the map with a Divine Beast for Link and a new people (like Gorons and so on) complete with shops. Instead it was more shrines, and repeats of old stuff.

Wow, I hadn't expected so much negativity. I haven't had time to go through all of the dlc yet, but so far I am enjoying it. Looking forward to getting the motorbike!

@Agriculture or even have a post game Hyrule Castle complete with Castle town, Lon Lon Ranch and that GameBoy town I can't remember the name of all rebuilt. Then give us a story with Link and Zelda and what they're doing after the main game but no such luck, well at least I've got Xenoblade to play after I'm done with it

The motorcycle is great and very useful. I just thought it was out of place.

You know what I wish we had gotten in the original game?

The Ancient Horse Armor. That thing makes riding horses so much more useful. It would have made a perfect reward from the Towers or perhaps shrines. Just being able to call them anywhere and buff a horse is amazing helpful early on.

@Agriculture I can see why some would feel that way. Personally I think in a world where machinery such as the Divine Beasts exist (not to mention the Sheikah Slate), the bike is not really misplaced. To each their own, I suppose.

@All How do people feel about the future: do you think Nintendo will make more DLC for BotW, or will we not see more Zelda until the next game? I would hope they keep releasing DLC while we wait for the next game (as the next one probably will take forever), but I do hope they make them a little meatier. More story-heavy would be appreciated as we didn't get as much story as most had hoped for in the main game.

There’s some talk that they’re ‘hinting’ at more DLC since we still need 2 more stamina chunks/hearts to complete the full set.

It would be interesting to see the "attachment rate" of the expansion pass, which I'm guessing is very high. I think it would make sense for them to sell a second expansion pass, also containing two packs.

If they decide to do that, I would like to see some sort of area, like an new island, where the there is enough tough enemies to make a maxed out character struggle. No more of this "we're taking away all your stuff". At the most such a place should take away your food/potions, but not your weapons and armour.

Not sure if they would make another season of DLC to be honest. The current DLC just expands on what's already there. Adding extra areas kind of goes against that, unless they add an area with a separate side story or something.

I like people's suggestions of a post-Ganon Hyrule but that wouldn't be worth the effort for DLC, and I'm not sure how they would add it without some reason for time travel...which would make things more complex than it needs to be.

I think whether there's a second season of content depends on whether Nintendo still wants to be supporting Wii U with new content over a year after its replacement has been released. You have to remember that the Wii U and Switch versions are identical in content with the only differences being in terms of graphics, framerate and whether you can play anywhere. Even the Switch shirt and Xenoblade 2 quest is in the Wii U version despite being Switch related.
