Well this is a bit of unexpected and confusing news.
This morning, Nintendo announced a season pass for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. “Technically” there are 3 packs releasing if you buy the $20 pass. The first pack launches on the day of release for the game and includes. . . . . . . .3 extra treasure chests in the over world, that according to Nintendo contain “useful items”. One also includes a new costume though, which according to Nintendo is just a Nintendo Switch shirt. The official first DLC Pack coming in Summer of 2017 will include a cave of trials challenge mode as well as. . . . . . A hard mode? Finally, The 2nd DLC Pack launching this Winter 2017 will include A brand new story and dungeon for the game.
Know I know what you’re thinking: “Everything but the 2nd DLC Pack sounds awful. I’ll just buy the 2nd pack instead of wasting my money on the season pass. I don’t have to buy the other stuff. Problem solved!” Well buddy, I’ve got some bad news for you. Turns out that in order to access the 2nd pack, you NEED to buy the season pass! None of the packs are available for purchase separately. This just all around seems like a very confusing move, especially after how well Nintendo has been in the past with games like Smash Bros, Mario Kart 8, and even Mario Golf: World Tour. Check out the confusing trailer below and tell us what you think about it in the comments.
