While Nintendo’s Hyrule Warriors that arrive on the Wii U back in 2014 and later found its way to Nintendo Switch, the title was expected to be a one-time splurge for Nintendo to engage in a warriors-like experience set in The Legend of Zelda universe. But after continuous discussion of how cool a new game would be, it finally arrived. But instead of being a second installment, a prequel was born instead.
Announcing Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, the new project is told to be of similar degree, but to elaborate further on the story for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. So for fans waiting for the highly-anticipated follow-up, this will surely quench your thirst for the time being. Arriving later in November, it was expected the game to only ship and leave it at that.
But now, Nintendo has announced an expansion pass for Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. You can view the list of scheduled content below:

Upon dissecting the finer details for the expansion pass, it reveals that many of the added content planned for Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity only issues conventional DLC and does not truly expand upon the conclusion of the game’s story.
