  • Xenoblade 2 expansion

After a follow-up on the Wii U, a proper sequel titled Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is now heading to the Nintendo Switch, and Nintendo unveiled some new details about the game in a Direct presentation today.

In Spring 2018 we can expect a new rare Blade, potentially adding more combat options and greater power with the new character.

There are also a number of new revelations, including plans for an expansion pass (i.e. season pass) that will cost £26.99.

Curiously, the various content drops will not be available individually, meaning that players will have to pay the full price upfront, even if they only want access to one of the expansions.

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

Available as a free update, the quest gives players the chance to unlock a Xenoblade costume for Link.

“With Xenoblade Chronicles 2, we are giving fans yet another engaging adventure that can only be found on Nintendo Switch, ” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of Americas Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. The main protagonist, Rex, is a Driver and Pyra is a Blade.

Nintendo also announced plans to release a Xenoblade Chronicles 2 season pass.

Players will also run into shining spots called Collection Points which provide an opportunity to pick up valuable items or dive under the clouds to salvage hard-to-find treasures. Game Informer has just published a huge interview with executive director Tetsuya Takahashi and have asked them that very question.

And the good news for Nintendo Switch owners doesn't stop there.

Players can preorder all the DLC now by buying a $30 expansion pass.
