The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is getting new DLC this week, but not the one we were expecting.
In a direct today, Nintendo revealed Xenoblade-themed content is making its way to Hyrule with a new side quest to follow and a brand new outfit to unlock based on Xenoblade Chronicles 2.
The announcement came in a direct highly focused on the upcoming Xenoblade release to Switch, which revealed expansion pack details and a closer look at the game before its release on 1st December 2017.
Nintendo didn’t give a clear update on the release of the Zelda DLC we’ve all been waiting for, which is set for release this year. Whilst many speculated the Champions’ Ballad DLC would drop in line with the release of the new Champions Amiibo on 10th November, but the latest evidence points to a later release date.
Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime confirmed in an interview with Kotaku that the company would be, “shortly be announcing the date for that content, so I would not lock and load on November 10th.”
