Xenoblade Chronicles 2 season pass announced and detailed

Today's Nintendo Direct focused exclusively on the company's next big Switch release, Xenoblade Chronicles 2.

Coming in at USD$29.99/£26.99, the season pass will include the release of regular content, beginning with additional support items in December and new quests in January. DLC will include a "challenge Battle Mode", quests, support items and a new side story.

Bandai Namco has announced plans to release three brand new exclusive games for the console in 2018.

As a major surprise for both Xenoblade and The Legend of Zelda fans, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 will be getting a brief cameo in the excellent The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. That quest will be available from November 9.

While the first Xenoblade Chronicles featured a primarily British voice cast that's become highly quotable in its own right, the availability of the original Japanese take on the characters and their story was a welcome addition. Main character Rex is a Driver and Pyra is a Blade.

Abilities will differ from Blade to Blade, so selecting different Blades during battles will add a strategy element to gameplay. Gamers can pre-order the physical or digital versions of the game bundled with or without the expansion pass. Hopefully, as a December release, it can make waves late in the year and give Switch owners a new big RPG to sink their teeth into.

Today's Direct showcase unearthed a ton of details about Xenoblade Chronicles 2, and showcased a vibrant world full of exploration, magic, and enchanting mech-fantasy-and of course unique team-based combat. Launching alongside the game is a themed Pro Controller for $75.
