The expansion pass, priced at $29.99, will grant access to the DLC packs detailed above as they are released and they can't be purchased individually.
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. In spring 2018, a new rare blade will be added, then a new challenge battle mode in summer.
Finally, ahead of the title's release, a promotional crossover quest in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will enable Link to dress up as Rex, the main character from Xenoblade Chronicles 2.
Available as a free update, the quest gives players the chance to unlock a Xenoblade costume for Link.
Xenoblade Chronicles 2 slices into the Nintendo Switch on December 1.
In and out of battle, Blades will have a wide array of support abilities. These humanoid weapons boost Drivers' power in battles in many different ways, depending on the Blades' unique abilities. It's great to see that availability continue in the next, upcoming release, and it's a good sign when it comes to ongoing trends from Nintendo. Nintendo have confirmed that there will be a season pass releasing alongside the game's release. Launching alongside the game is a themed Pro Controller for $75. They'll have more details on what the pass includes in the future.
