Earlier today, Nintendo hosted a new Direct broadcast in which is revealed a ton of new Xenoblade Chronicles 2 details.

A big news item involves the season pass (or "expansion pass") for the game, which will go for $29.99 and provide players with DLC that will launch between the December launch of the game and the fall of 2018. For more downloadable content, which will be released over the course of months, you can purchase the game's Expansion Pass, available today.

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.

Available as a free update, the quest gives players the chance to unlock a Xenoblade costume for Link.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 has been much anticipated ever since it was originally revealed at the Nintendo Switch's official press event back in January. Blades are artificial lifeforms that bond with Drivers to lend them their weapons and powers in battle. Rex, the main character, is a Driver while his companion Pyra is a Blade. When players fight alongside a Blade, they might trigger effects that protect the Driver, strengthen attacks, and other helpful actions. Selecting different Blades will provide the player with different possible strategies during the real-time combat. As expected, we received new details about the game's story, along with introductions to a lengthy roster of characters.

It will launch alongside a brand new Nintendo Switch Pro Controller and a Collector's Edition.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 will launch exclusively for the Nintendo Switch system on December 1 at a suggested retail price of $59.99.

Players can preorder all the DLC now by buying a $30 expansion pass.
