'The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild' News: Expansion Pass Announced

"The 3DS team and the Wii U team have different approaches to game development, so I don't necessarily want to combine them and have them think together, but rather have each think about what they can bring to Nintendo Switch from their own perspective".

As Game Informer's March cover story, the magazine continues to deliver a month of exclusive content related to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Nintendo notes that the "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" expansion pack will be released for both the Nintendo Switch and Wii U versions of the game and that they are completely identical.

"There is a little bit of a trick that I implemented this time", Aonuma teased.


"The handheld development team will not be phased out because of Nintendo Switch", Aonuma said. I want you to think of it more as an evolved style of 2D style. When asked, Aonuma did say it would be possible for players to miss some of the story moments seen in recent trailers.

Aonuma elaborated on this thinking, giving gamers some insight into how Breath of the Wild was developed and what players can expect. And because you're the protagonist in the game, that's what you should be doing.

This is an interesting concept and one that will be interesting to experience.

Some may see it as price gouging, but development of big name games is notoriously expensive, and companies always have to strike a balance with price (which is what this really comes down to) between making a profit and appealing to consumers. Some games, like Minecraft, give players near flawless freedom where the story and experience is entirely up to each individual player.


Breath of the Wild understandably dominates much of Nintendo's press in the weeks leading up to its long-awaited release, Nintendo might just have something else cooking behind the scenes.

He concluded by asking, "But that's not the case for Breath of the Wild, right?"

This is because the "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" content packs will not be available to purchase separately, as the developer noted in its press release picked up by Kotaku.
