Xenoblade Chronicles 2 DLC Will Last a Full Year

I'm a bit surprised that this game crossed over with Zelda as opposed to the recent Super Mario Odyssey.

The big news is that Xenoblade Chronicles 2 will be getting a full Expansion Pass (a first for the series).

The Direct goes over a few inside baseball things like combat, towns, and trading, if you want to catch up.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is set to launch on December 1 exclusively for Nintendo Switch, and will serve as the final major release for the Switch this year.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is an upcoming Switch game coming our way next month, and now we have a brand new trailer for Monolith's RPG, one that's all about the characters in the game, some of which are friends and some are foes. Blades have a wide array of support abilities that can affect the number of items that can be collected, open up new paths to explore or initiate other special effects.

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. Abilities differ from Blade to Blade, so selecting different Blades adds to the strategy of battle. A bunch of DLC is on the way after release, including new story content, new quests, and a new Blade. A followup in the form of Xenoblade Chronicles X released for the Wii U, which didn't receive quite as stellar reviews but nonetheless was still well-received. Players who prefer the digital version can pre-purchase the game from Nintendo eShop now, either standalone or as a bundle with the Expansion Pass. More details about each pack will be released in the future.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 will also have a special edition Switch Pro controller for $74.99, and a $99 special edition that includes a copy of the game, a 220-page art book, a soundtrack, and a metal case to hold the cartridge.
