It includes new items and quests coming in December and January, plus new gear, a new mode, and "a brand-new story and adventure" landing each season through Autumn 2018. Content also includes an additional adventure with a new side story. Details about individual elements of the Expansion Pass will be released in the future.
Curiously, the various content drops will not be available individually, meaning that players will have to pay the full price upfront, even if they only want access to one of the expansions.
We're getting at least one new The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild quest to tide us over while we wait for The Champions' Ballad DLC. Although it wasn't explicitly mentioned, this DLC side quest will be available as a free download or an in-game update.
Nintendo wrapped up the Direct by revealing Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is available for pre-order now from major retailers as well as the Nintendo Switch eShop. In Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Blades are artificial lifeforms that bond with Drivers to lend them their weapons and powers in battle.
Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is nearly here! Main character Rex is a Driver and Pyra is a Blade.
In and out of battle, Blades will have a wide array of support abilities. When players fight alongside a Blade, they might trigger effects that protect the Driver, strengthen attacks, and other helpful actions. Probably not, unless that silly Nintendo Switch T-shirt you get for buying Breath of the Wild's season pass is supposed to be canon, too.
The 15 minute pre-recorded video offered a new trailer for the upcoming JRPG, as well as more details of the class and combat systems. Hopefully, as a December release, it can make waves late in the year and give Switch owners a new big RPG to sink their teeth into.
It will launch alongside a brand new Nintendo Switch Pro Controller and a Collector's Edition.
Players can preorder all the DLC now by buying a $30 expansion pass.
