Nintendo Treehouse Plays Breath of the Wild’s Master Trials DLC

Nintendo Treehouse spent virtually the entire afternoon today playing upcoming Switch and 3DS content, including Breath of the Wild’s first DLC pack.

Throughout the stream, they show off the latest additions to Link’s wardrobe — from Midna’s Helmet to Majora’s Mask — as well as a closer look at the Cave of Ordeals-inspired Trial of the Sword. Of course, it’s all punctuated by some infectiously enthusiastic commentary from the Treehouse team. Check it out after the jump!

Midna’s Helmet is Coming to Breath of the Wild

Nintendo just unveiled the specifics of Breath of the Wild’s first DLC pack. Set to release this summer, this initial wave of content includes a Cave of Ordeals-inspired trial, Hard Mode, and eight pieces of armor inspired by previous Zelda titles.

Majora’s Mask and a Tingle outfit are enticing enough, but the inclusion of Midna’s helmet — hair and all! — just has me over the moon. Honestly, when the Twilight Princess Link amiibo was revealed, this armor piece was exactly what I was hoping we’d get. Of course, that ended up not being the case, but at least DLC Pack 1 came through!

Head over to Nintendo’s official site for the full details, and be sure to share your thoughts on this announcement in the comments below!

Twitter Giveaway: Get a Chance to Win a Copy of the Twilight Princess Manga

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is finally out in the open and it’s every bit as addicting as I hoped it would be. Seriously, it’s been a long time since I’ve played a game almost 10 hours straight. I need help!

Link’s long-awaited adventure isn’t the only piece of Zelda content this month, though. On March 14, the first volume of Akira Himekawa’s manga adaptation of Twilight Princess releases in English.

Based on what I’ve seen of the book so far, it looks like a refreshing take on a familiar story — one with its fair share of entertaining character moments. Midna’s introduction in particular is something that I would’ve loved to have seen in the game itself — you’ll know what I mean when you see it.

In any case, what better way to celebrate the manga’s release than with a Twitter giveaway!

It’s pretty straightforward: follow us at @WantMidnaBack and tweet to us your favorite moment from the Zelda series. This can be just about anything — a particular cutscene, a boss fight, a dungeon, simply walking out onto Hyrule Field in Ocarina of Time for the first time. Whichever moment from the series is the most powerful to you, let us know! Lastly, be sure to include the hashtag #ZeldaMemories at the end of your tweet. Three people will be picked at random and sent a copy of the Twilight Princess manga. The deadline for submitting a tweet is March 12 at 7 p.m. CST.

Looking forward to hearing everyone’s responses!
