Nintendo shocked everybody final week by saying a season pass and post-launch DLC for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Although that is technically not the writer’s fist time creating DLC for a sport, it’s a primary for Zelda, and it appears to be like like a considerable add-on.

Naturally, not everybody was pleased with the announcement. During a current interview with IGN (by way of Nintendo Life), Nintendo’s Bill Trinen took time to clarify why the choice was made.

“It was tough, because we actually had a lot of debate in terms of do we announce it, how do we announce it,” Trinen stated.

“I think one of the things that’s unique about the way Nintendo develops games is when we’re working on a game … you guys know that it’s essential we use every last minute to make the game as good as we possibly can, and really what that means is that the dev team was working on the main game, finished the main game, and as they’re starting to get to the very end and wrap it up, really they said, ‘You know we’ve made this massive world of Hyrule, we’ve spent a long time building it. It would be a waste to just make one game and have that be it.’”

Trinen then went on to say that numerous thought went into the content material that can go into the DLC, and reiterated that simply the actual fact it’s launching a very long time after the principle sport’s launch, proves the content material will not be but completed.

The first add-on launches this summer season, whereas the opposite one is primed for a vacation launch.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is out March three on Nintendo Switch, and Wii U.
