Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and Breath of the Wild DLCs Announced

08 November 2017

Monolith Soft will be delivering a huge action RPG for Nintendo Switch on December 1st in the form of Xenoblade Chronicles 2, but some of you are probably wondering what the company's next move is.

A day-one DLC was announced during the stream which will allow players in English-speaking territories to hear the original Japanese voice-acting with English subtitles rather than hearing the English voice-acting, if they should so choose.

Nintendo Switch owners will get a special Xenoblade Chronicles 2 surprise in Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild this week.

"Fans who want to expand their epic adventure can pre-purchase an Expansion Pass for the game in Nintendo eShop beginning today or pre-order it from select retailers shortly at a suggested retail price of $29.99". We'll start with the non-gameplay details, because the video itself is a pretty deep dive into mechanics, environments, and characters. The protagonist is what the game calls a "Driver" named Rex. Other allies are designated as Support for each Driver, which come as either Tank, Attacker, or Healer, and help determine the Driver's class. Since a Driver can have three Supports, that's nine Arts per Driver. The DLC aims to familiarize players with Rex, the main character in Xenoblade Chronicles 2.

The big news is that Xenoblade Chronicles 2 will be getting a full Expansion Pass (a first for the series). If it works the same as the new armor introduced in Breath of the Wild DLC Pack 1, it will give Link a bonus ability or status effect for wearing all the pieces, but the Great Fairies won't be able to increase its defense level. With a free title update coming to Zelda on November 9th, a new side quest will open up that will earn Link some new threads. It's rated T for Teen.
