Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was the night's big victor as it took home the coveted Game of the Year Award despite facing stiff competition from titles such as Super Mario Odyssey, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, Persona 5 and Horizon Zero Dawn. It featured new story elements and a sweet ride for protagonist Link.

Thankfully, picking up the new Royal Guard Uniform in Breath of the Wild's Champions' Ballad DLC is nowhere near as complicated as fulfilling the requirements to unlock the new Master Cycle Zero motorcycle.

The new DLC is titled "The Champions' Ballad".

A few moments ago, The Game Awards 2017 ended with a memorable night delivering the most important prize to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which debuted in March this year for Nintendo Switch and Wii U. No doubt this award is not just a triumph for the series, but also for Nintendo since 2017 has been the year of the house of Kyoto. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild also won the awards for Best Game Direction and Best Action/Adventure Game.

Kinberg has also been involved as a producer of X-Men spinoff films, including 2016's Deadpool and the upcoming New Mutants . Dark Phoenix takes place in 1992, which is 10 years after the events of X-Men: Apocalypse and sees the X-Men as celebrities.


In addition, the critically acclaimed Bayonetta 2 game, originally a Wii U exclusive, will be launching for Nintendo Switch on February 16. Annual video game preview and awards show The Game Awards delivered three wins apiece to vintage cartoon-styled jaunt Cuphead, intense mental health adventure Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice, and overall Game of the Year recipient The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

As expected, Nintendo released a new update for Breath of the Wild on the Switch to support the new expansion.

Nintendo announced a Breath of the Wild Season Pass at the beginning of this year, promising a "Trials" challenged followed by a story expansion.

Nintendo previously said "The Champion's Ballad" would arrive in "December", but never put a release date on it. Called the Master Cycle Zero, the ride has a somewhat steampunk design. But people play "Zelda" games for narrative-based adventure, and this second expansion content is more along those lines.
