Trial of the Sword and Hard Mode, plus a special mask and Tingle wear
Nintendo is ready to reveal more details about its first downloadable content for The Legend Of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and it comes with a hard mode and a Tingle outfit. The Master Trials launches this summer and here are all the important details.
A new 'Trial Of The Sword' will feature 45 rooms of monster battling. Previously known as 'Cave of Trials Challenge' Link will be rewarded for completing it with a forever powered-up Master Sword. There's a new hard mode too, where enemies will be stronger and will recover during battles. Hard moders will also see new floating platforms around Hyrule which are home to enemies and sweet sweet loot.
Wanderers will like the addition of 'Hero’s Path Mode' which tracks your route on your map, cataloguing up to 200 hours of play, and travel medallions that let you set up a temporary fast travel point.
There's also new equipment like the Korok mask, which makes finding those damn seeds easier (it shakes if any are nearby) and items inspired by eight classic Zelda games and characters including Midna, Tingle, Phantom and Majora’s Mask.
“Whether you have already completed the adventure or are just getting ready to paraglide into Hyrule for the first time, this new downloadable Expansion Pass makes this massive game even bigger and more engrossing,” says Nintendo's Doug Bowser. “We are always looking for new ways to provide fun and exciting experiences for our fans.”
The pack doesn't have a set date yet, but will be out some time in summer, and a second pack will follow for the holidays. The two packs are only available as a bundle for a price of $19.99.
