Hidden in today’s PR statement from Nintendo comes news that there’s a free side quest for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild as part of a crossover promo for the upcoming Xenoblade Chronicles 2 which launches on the Nintendo Switch on December 1st. Here’s the details we’ve recieved so far about it:
In Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Blades are artificial lifeforms that bond with Drivers to lend them their weapons and powers in battle. Main character Rex is a Driver and Pyra is a Blade. To help familiarize fans with main character Rex before the game launches, a new Side Quest will be available via a free update in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild game for both Nintendo Switch and Wii U systems, in which players will be able to obtain a Rex costume starting on Nov. 9.
