    I know BoTW has, or will have DLC; but how do I go about purchasing it? Can it be purchased through the eShop? Thoughts and help appreciated :)

    Yes it is purchased through the eshop. For botw, there is an option in game to take you right to it's dlc in the eshop.

    For now it adds 3 chest to the starting area. One provides a nintendo switch shirt and the other two chest give random weapon or food.

    Summer 2017: "The first content pack, scheduled to launch this summer, adds a Cave of Trials challenge, a new hard mode, and a new feature for the in-game map".

    Holiday 2017: "The second content pack adds a new dungeon, an original story, and even more new challenges".

    Thanks. I was wondering if the items are worth it to justify a season pass purchase yet. A Switch shirt looks out of place and two random weapons are meh.

    soon you will still end up getting the Switch and you might end up getting a BOTW copy again + DLC for it even tho u already have one for the Wii U.. so in the end you end up spending more thab just $400.. unless you could wait 2-3 more yrs when the price goes down and will come with games bundled..
