Is Xenoblade Chronicles 2 one of the games you're most looking forward to for the Switch?

Nintendo recently held a Nintendo Direct presentation that was focused entirely on the game, giving lots of new details on the 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.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 launches December 1.

At the end of Nintendo's Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Nintendo Direct, add-ons for both this game and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild were revealed. For starters, a Japanese voiceover track will be available on launch day as a free DLC, if you prefer to play with the original voice acting. I'm a bit surprised that this game crossed over with Zelda as opposed to the recent Super Mario Odyssey. Other allies are designated as Support for each Driver, which come as either Tank, Attacker, or Healer, and help determine the Driver's class. Those releases will be followed by a "new rare blade" and a challenge battle mode in spring and summer 2018, respectively, and finally, Nintendo promises a brand new story on tap for fall 2018.

And the good news for Nintendo Switch owners doesn't stop there.

The expansion pass, priced at $29.99, will grant access to the DLC packs detailed above as they are released and they can't be purchased individually. Probably not, unless that silly Nintendo Switch T-shirt you get for buying Breath of the Wild's season pass is supposed to be canon, too. A followup in the form of Xenoblade Chronicles X released for the Wii U, which didn't receive quite as stellar reviews but nonetheless was still well-received. But not the expansion pass or the Pro Controller.
