Link Gets Outfitted With Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Costume In Free Breath of the Wild Update

breath of the wild 2

The very first day of December marks the debut of Xenoblade Chronicles 2, the long-awaited sequel to the original and highly recognized Japanese RPG. In the latest update on the upcoming title, Nintendo Direct reveals a wealth of information on gameplay, characters, and it even included a detailed trailer. In order to create a successful promotion of the game, a crossover tie-in to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was created and it involves the one and only hero of time, Link. Did someone say “HoT” Xenoblade Chronicles 2 costume?

Seen in the gallery above, the completely free update for the Nintendo Switch game allows Link to don a Xenoblade Chronicles 2 costume from the main character, Rex. In order to get this sweet new armor, a brand new in-game side quest will be made available to players in the form of a free update. It seems fitting that a cross-promotion between these two IPs would take place, seeing as Monolith Soft helped BotW’s development.

The free Breath of the Wild update isn’t available just yet, and will instead go live on November 9th, 2017. Furthermore, Nintendo and Monolith Soft are going all out to celebrate the upcoming game by revealing a sweet themed Switch Pro Controller that will be available the same day as the game’s debut, as well as a game plan for a steady stream of content in the first year. For the hard-core JRPG fans out there, there’s an expansion pass for Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Check out all the details here!
