Nintendo’s finally following yet another modern gaming trend, though this is one I’m not personally a fan of. They’re selling season pass DLC for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The DLC part of this is fine, by the way. It’s the selling it early that bugs me.
I digress. Here’s what’s on tap for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild‘s “Expansion Pass,” as they’re calling it. The pass will cost $19.99, it’ll sell on March 3, 2017, (launch day for the game), and it will be available for both the Wii U and Nintendo Switch versions of the game. Nintendo shared an image that details the three phases of the pass.
The exclusive in-game clothing, by the way? A shirt for Link with a Nintendo Switch logo on it. Consider this!
If Link wear's a shirt with the Nintendo Switch logo on it, consider what that does to the Zelda canon.

Nintendo says they want to offer fans more to explore
The word of the Expansion Pass included a statement from Producer Eiji Aonuma.
“The world of Hyrule, which we created for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, is so large and vibrant that we wanted to offer more for players to experience within it…
…With this new Expansion Pass, we hope that fans will play, explore and enjoy the game even more.”
