Xenoblade Chronicles 2 meets Breath of the Wild for special crossover

Monolith Soft's sprawling open-world JRPG Xenoblade Chronicles 2 will have a $30 expansion pass that includes a bevy of post-release DLC.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 will also benefit for additional quests and content as the months wear on.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2, which has a December 1 release date, is the direct sequel to the 2011 Nintendo Wii role-playing game.

Today's Direct showcase unearthed a ton of details about Xenoblade Chronicles 2, and showcased a vibrant world full of exploration, magic, and enchanting mech-fantasy-and of course unique team-based combat. Stay tuned for our review in the coming weeks. In addition, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 will receive a day-one DLC patch that brings an optional Japanese audio track.

First DLC drops will contain quests and support items, and eventually include a challenge Battle Mode where players will face powerful enemies.

Bandai Namco has announced plans to release three brand new exclusive games for the console in 2018. Drivers like Rex can utilize "Blades", which are artificial lifeforms that can lend their weapons and powers-the character of Pyra is the most prominent Blade featured in the game. Abilities differ from Blade to Blade, so selecting different Blades adds to the strategy of battle. In the vast world of Alrest, players will discover both peaceful and aggressive wildlife of all shapes and sizes wandering among giant plains, winding caverns, frozen kingdoms, scorched earth and sandy beaches. The same day, the Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Edition Nintendo Switch Pro Controller will launch at a suggested retail price of $74.99. "Now that we've gone through the process of development, we're in a spot now where I'm beginning to think about what we want to do next", Kojima adds.
