Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Details from Today's Nintendo Direct

Nintendo

Today Nintendo presented a special Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Direct (the recording starts at 25:00). In spring 2018, a new rare blade will be added, then a new challenge battle mode in summer.

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.

The Japanese audio DLC for Xenoblade Chronicles 2 will be released free of charge through the Nintendo eShop. This is likely only available for the Switch version of Breath of the Wild and not the Wii U. But we won't have to wait long to find out as the costume and quest are available on November 9. Are you going to pick up Xenoblade Chronicles 2 when it launches on December 1 for the Nintendo Switch?

Nintendo also unveiled their post-launch plans for Xenoblade Chronicles 2. A bunch of DLC is on the way after release, including new story content, new quests, and a new Blade. The big announcement was that the game would be getting a season pass, featuring everything from new modes along with main and side quests. What exactly this new adventure will be remains a mystery along with the rest of the DLC coming to the game, but hopefully it will still be good. This special version includes the game, a beautifully illustrated hardbound art book filled with 220 pages of concept designs and artwork of the characters, landscapes and objects from the game, a sound-selection CD of numerous games memorable music tracks, and a special metal case containing the Xenoblade Chronicles 2 game card at a suggested retail price of $99.99.

Earlier this year, it was announced that a followup to 2010's Xenoblade Chronicles will be releasing soon.
