Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is the newest installment of the series since it’s first appearance on the Wii in 2012. This morning Nintendo released a special direct about the game, we saw some tasty things coming to the Nintendo Switch.
Fans of Japanese voices will get a free DLC (downloadable content) for the game when the game releases on December 1st. This will also include English subtitles. Nintendo also revealed an “Expansion Pass” that’ll cost $29.99. This bundle will release content throughout the year, starting in December till autumn in 2018. Some of the paid content will include weapons, quests, additional gameplay modes and items.
This isn’t the only time Nintendo has pulled paid DLCs. Zelda: Breath of the Wild, released earlier in 2017 for the Nintendo Wii U and Nintendo Switch has been selling multiple DLC packs, their second one still in works. Many fans haven’t been too thrilled since making these expansion passes. Paying for a $59.99 (standard edition) game and add $29.99 for the expansion, it’ll cost you $89.98 (before taxes). A steep price for fans and gamers. Hard-core fans will have to fork over an extra $40. This edition includes a steel case with the game, illustrated book, and a sound-selection CD.
Speaking of Zelda, Zelda: Breath of the Wild will be receiving a free, fun, cross-promotion DLC side quest to earn a Xenoblade Chronicles 2 costume. This side quest and costume will be available for the Switch and Wii U. Nintendo has not forgotten its Wii U players and glad to see they are keeping them in the loop. The cross-promotion DLC will be available on November 9th.
Xenoblade Chronicles 2 will be releasing exclusively for the Nintendo Switch on December 1st. Pre-order your copy today.
