    Nintendo's latest Zelda game has just gotten an interesting bit of news. The title will be launching with an Expansion Pass which will allow access to two DLC packs that will be available later this year in 2017. Pre-purchasing the Expansion Pass now will cause three treasure chests to appear in the world, with extra items. One of which being an outfit for Link, which has the Nintendo Switch logo on it. The first DLC pack for the game is set to launch this Summer, and will include a new Hard Mode, a challenge, and a new in-game map feature. The second pack will launch Holiday 2017 and will have a brand new Story addition and a new dungeon. Both the Switch and the Wii U will be getting these DLCs.

    I feel like this annoucement was rushed a lot. If nintendo would have waited some months to tell about this pack, no one would have complained. Now, it just feels like a cheap day-one DLC to milk early adopters.

    $20 for the Season Pass? Interesting..
    Story DLC is included?! I'm sold.

    Comes at the end of the year, perfect time IMO. Would have been a while after beating the game, so.

    Oh no... Way to sour everyone's moods, Nintendo. The hype was so strong!

    Is this more Dawnguard or Dragonborn? And do we get better AI in hard mode or just the damage.

    It's not like Nintendo have never gouged customers before - how many times have they charged for Super Mario Bros on their various platforms? But to see story content locked behind a pay wall feels like a first to me. So much for Nintendo games being the full package...

    Combined with slight discount. Individually should be 2 * $12/3.

    It's more like Dawnguard to me. Something outside of the normal quest line.

    I may be sold if the DLC lets you blast through Hyrule with Samus Aran.

    Yes, I'm desperate.
