Well this was a surprise. Nintendo just revealed an expansion pass for Breath of the Wild.
It will cost $19.99 / £17.99 / €19.99 and it be available to buy at launch. At launch you’ll get three new treasure chests on the Great Plateau, one which contains a shirt with a Nintendo Switch logo on it. Two others will “deliver useful items.” The first actual DLC pack will be launched this summer, and will contain a new Cave of Trials, a new hard mode, and a new feature for the map.
The second pack, scheduled for winter 2017, will have “new challenges that will let players enjoy a new dungeon and a new original story.”
The DLC packs will be released for both the Wii U and Nintendo Switch versions of the game, so at the very least you can’t complain about Wii U owners being left out.
Breath of the Wild is completed, this is new content not “stuff that was cut out that they’re charging us for.”
I wonder what the “original story” will be?
