The said amount will buy players three treasure chests upon release. These chests will be situated in the game's Great Plateau where useful items can be obtained. In addition, fans will also get an exclusive Nintendo Switch shirt for Link to try on, according to Nintendo as cited by Kotaku.  

The first expansion pack will arrive in summer as it will bring forth a Hard Mode difficulty, additional attributes on its maps, and even a Cave of Trials challenge. Lastly, DLC 2 which will arrive during the Holidays will be the beefiest among the inbound contents as it will endow the game with new challenges, a dungeon to explore, and a brand new storyline.  

In the interim, Nintendo's Yoshiaki Koizumi expressed the company's intent to expand the virtual console to the looming Switch. In an interview with French publication Melty, he pointed out that they are planning to devise varying joycon shapes for the new console. When asked if a virtual console feature is heading towards the Switch, Koizumi replied that he cannot answer such as of the moment, though he highlighted that they are heading towards that milestone.   

Both "Breath of the Wild" and Switch are slated to be out this March 3 including the earlier mentioned Expansion Pass. In the meantime, watch a recently released gameplay video of the game here:
