Nintendo announces DLC ‘Expansion Pass’ for Breath of the Wild on Switch and Wii U
Nintendo has announced that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will have an ‘Expansion Pass’ available for the game on both the Wii U and Switch.
When the game launches on March 3rd you’ll be able to purchase an Expansion Pass for the game, essentially it’s a season pass. Nintendo says Breath of the Wild is so huge and that the game offers a rich canvas where additional adventures can take place.
The expansion pass will cost $30AU/$34NZ and when you pre-purchase the pass you’ll unlock some exclusive items to use in the game right away. They’ll appear as treasure chests in the Great Plateau.
- A shirt with a Nintendo Switch logo which Link can wear during his adventure, exclusive to the Expansion Pass.
- The other two items will be ‘useful items’.
The first content packed will be released this Winter in Australia, will include the addition of a Cave of Trials challenge, a new hard mode and a new feature for the in-game map.
The second pack will launch Holiday 2017 and will add new challenges, a new dungeon and a new original story. The Expansion pass is available for both the Wii U and Switch versions of the game.
“The world of Hyrule which we created for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is so large and vibrant that we wanted to offer more for players to experience within it,” said Nintendo developer Eiji Aonuma, the long-time producer of the series. “With this new Expansion Pass, we hope that fans will play, explore and enjoy the game even more.”
So what do you think? DLC for a Zelda game? What a world.
