Xenoblade Chronicles 2: all you need to know about DLC, Expansion Pass

Xenoblade Chronicles 2

During the Nitnendo Direct presentaton entirely dedicatd to Xenoblade Chronicles 2 (on November 7th), Nintendo announced that the game would get some DLC. Xenoblade Chronicles X already got some (though it was included from the get-go in the western release), but Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is getting even more, with an Expansion Pass to boot.

On this page, you will find all there is to know about the DLC and Expansion Pass for the game!

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 – Japanese Voice Over Option

Just like Fire Emblem Warriors, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 will offer Japanese voice over as an option, but it will require a DLC pack available at launch. The best part? It will be completely free!

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 – Expansion Pass

  • Release date: November 7th (pre-purchase)
  • Price: 29.99€ / $29.99 / 2 778 Yen

NB: as usual, each DLC Pack will only be available on the day they’re released (check out below for more details), you do not get early access even if you buy the Season Pass (which is the only way to get the DLC in the first place).
