Zelda Breath of the Wild remains to be one of the best games of 2017 and of recent history. It seems like Nintendo is looking to repay the downpour of support from the community with a possible major DLC coming in the future. If the speculations are true, then players can get more game time with the possible Zelda Breath of the Wild DLC.

One player recently discovered that the lower part of the Hyrule map in Zelda Breath of the Wild is a huge void and is connected to Hyrule. The community is now speculating that Nintendo is going to have a massive Zelda Breath of the Wild DLC for us. But what can we expect from this possible DLC?

New Story

If Nintendo is going to add massive landmass in the Zelda Breath of the Wild DLC, then we can expect it to have some new story accompanying it. The floor is open for a ton possible storylines for the DLC and even game creator Eiji Anouma has already teased what kind of DLC they might add in the future of the game.

In the 3DS version of Hyrule Warriors, Nintendo introduced a female version of Link named Linkle. The character was a huge hit with the community according to Anouma and he even showed interest in making Linkle a star of her own title.

“Regarding the future possibility of us taking a Zelda title in a new direction, perhaps with Link as someone different, or with a new protagonist altogether who’s radically different from what we’ve seen before, on the Wii U there’s already Hyrule Warriors. A female protagonist is definitely the direction Nintendo is headed to,” said Anouma.

A new Legend of Zelda title will probably come years from now considering how big a game Breath of the Wild is. Nintendo might take its time in developing a new title but that doesn’t rule out the possibility of Linkle being the star of a massive Zelda Breath of the Wild DLC.

New Shrines And Other Challenges

If not a story DLC, then we can expect the map expansion to come in with a ton of challenges for Link and the players to partake in. There might be a ton of new Shrines to challenge in the new region. The void in the map is roughly one-third the size of what’s available in Hyrule now so we can expect a lot of dungeons, Shrines, and more.
