Nintendo announces expansion for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on Wii U and Switch

With The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild set to be released alongside the Nintendo Switch in less than a month, Nintendo has announced that players will be able to purchase an Expansion Pass for the title.

In purchasing the pass, players will gain access to a pair of downloads that will offer additional content for the game.

The first expansion that is slated to arrive this summer will offer players "a Cave of Trials challenge, a new hard mode, and a new feature for the in-game map." The second expansion, which is due in the winter, is a bit more interesting in that it will offer a new dungeon and a new original story.

As an added bonus, those who take advantage by pre-purchasing the expansion will be offered three treasure chests in the game's Great Plateau area. Details of the contents of all the chests were not disclosed, but one of the items will be a Nintendo Switch logo shirt that Link can wear in the game.

The Expansion Pass will be available for the Switch and Wii U for $19.99.
