Nintendo has announced that their upcoming Legend of Zelda title for the Nintendo Switch and Nintendo WiiU will be receiving an "Expansion Pass" on the game's release, a first for a mainline Zelda title.

The expansion pass which, will be priced at USD$19.99 (or your regional equivalent), will be split into two parts and will be released during the summer and holiday season of 2017. The passes will be available for both the Switch and WiiU versions of the game, however, note that each individual DLC pack cannot be purchased separately. Meaning the only option would be to purchase the Expansion Pass, and you'll receive both packs when released at their expected dates.

The content included is as follows:

DLC Pack 1
  • Adds new Cave of Trials challenge 
  • New Hard Mode
  • Additional Map Feature

DLC Pack 2
  • New original story
  • New dungeon
  • Additional challenges 

There'll also be other bonuses players will receive upon purchasing the Expansion Pass which are three new Treasure Chests that are found in the Great Plateau. Two will containing useful items, and one will contain an exclusive in-game clothing item, a Nintendo Switch T-shirt. Oddly, it's still a Switch T-shirt in the WiiU version of the game.

The Expansion Pass will be available the same day as the launch of Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which will be March 3rd, 2017. Thus, Day One players can access that bonus content straight away! You can also check out the Expansion Pass video presented by producer Eiji Aonuma below.
