The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, without plans for expansions or DLCs

Months before the release of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, Nintendo’s website hinted at possible downloadable content for the game starring Link. After all, almost all of Kyoto’s first-party games add some kind of Expansion Pass, although it doesn’t seem to be the case for this Zelda. At least, that’s what Eiji Aonuma, the game’s producer, has indicated in an interview with the Japanese magazine Famitsu (via Go Nintendo).

Why are there no plans to release DLC for Zelda: Tears of The Kingdom?

According to its creator, the developers have already experimented with everything they wanted within the universe they have built: “There are no plans to release additional content at this time, but this is because I believe we have done everything we could to create mechanics in that world,” he explained.

“First of all, the reason we decided to make a sequel to our previous game was because we thought we could give it value by experimenting with new gameplay in Hyrule.” According to the producer, if that feeling returns, they could return to that world again, either in another sequel or a new work. “I think it will be a completely new way to play, so I would be happy if you awaited it with anticipation.”

Breath of the Wild did receive additional content, including new challenges and the expansion “The Champions’ Ballad.” As for the sequel, it remains to be seen whether new plans will arise over time or if they will choose to move on to the next installment in the series.

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is one of the standout games of the year. Released last May, the game received a perfect score on MeriStation (10/10) and was hailed as a masterpiece, just like Baldur’s Gate 3.

Nintendo’s next big game is Super Mario Bros. Wonder, a title that we were able to try out at Gamescom, so you can already read our first impressions.
