You may not be able to play as her, but the next DLC for The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild will have a greater focus on Princess Zelda as opposed to Link’s journey throughout the game.
Below is a tweet sent out by Nintendo’s European division who showed a 17-second clip from “The Champions’ Ballad”. It shows Zelda herself on horseback through the snowy tundra of the northwest part of Hyrule in an area that doesn’t look too familiar right out get gate. Followed by her in the royal chamber in Gerudo Villiage, most likely meeting with Urbosa as they were trying to find a way to seal Calamity Ganon up from attacking Hyrule.

Obviously, “The Champions’ Ballad” will probably feature the actual champions that are helping Zelda as they command the Devine Beasts, but how much you’re actually going to get in Breath Of The Wild because it is still unknown. But in any case it’s good to see that they’re finally using the snowy tundra for something other than random missions where we freeze our asses off, and that we’ll be getting more depth to the side characters than just “Hey, I’m dead, but here’s my stuff and good luck.” The DLC will be released later this year.
