Producer Announces No Further Content for 'Tears of the Kingdoms' on Nintendo Switch
Nintendo Switch's successful game, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, unlikely to receive any DLC content according to producer Eiji Aonuma in an interview with Famitsu. Aonuma stated that the development team feels they have exhausted all possibilities for gameplay in that particular world, thus no plans for additional content are in the pipeline. However, he left room for the possibility of revisiting the world if new gameplay ideas emerge.
In the same interview, Aonuma shared that the sequel to the previous game was created in response to the perceived worthiness of experiencing new gameplay elements in Hyrule. He hinted that if compelling reasons arise, they may revisit the same gaming world. This could be in the form of a sequel or a completely new iteration offering a fresh way to play. This would certainly be something to anticipate for fans.
On another note, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom's predecessor, Breath of the Wild, saw two series of paid DLC through its Expansion Pass. This included new side quests, shrines, outfits and a new mode called Master Mode. It even introduced an upgraded mode of transportation, the Master Cycle Zero. However, in Tears of the Kingdom, traversal across territories is limited to player-crafted devices.
