The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Gets DLC Shown in New Trailer at Nintendo Spotlight

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild's vast scope is growing even bigger with a new look at the game's expansion content from E3 2017.

June 13, 2017

Released alongside the debut of the Nintendo Switch in March, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has quickly drawn substantial critical acclaim and has kept new Switch owners occupied for hundreds of hours on end, with more of the game set to arrive later this year in our first look at its DLC and expansions.

During Nintendo’s Spotlight presentation at E3 2017, Nintendo shared a new trailer showcasing the upcoming Expansion Pass content for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which will feature a variety of new story missions and Challenge Maps, and much, much more to expand on an already massive title.

The trailer provided a closer look at the new “The Trial of the Sword” section of the title, while also showcasing the game’s new masks that players can utilize, and the new “Master Mode” difficulty level that will make the (already-challenging) game even more difficult.

During the stream, Nintendo confirmed that the first expansion pass pack, titled “The Master Trials”, will release on June 30th, 2017, while the second pack (“The Champions’ Ballad”) is expected in Holiday 2017. Both packs are included as part of the Expansion Pass for Breath of the Wild, which retails for $19.99.

A series of new amiibo based on the Champions from Breath of the Wild will also be arriving, with four new figurines coming sometime later this year that will (presumably) have some sort of functionality with the main game and/or the DLC expansions.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is available now on Nintendo Switch and Wii U – for a closer look at what’s in store for the game later this year, you can check out the brand new trailer from the Nintendo E3 Spotlight presentation below:
