A Zelda: Breath of the Wild fan expansion is coming called 'Second Wind'


Clever name

Fans have always been augmenting Zelda: Breath of the Wild's expansive universe in creative ways, but recent efforts have been the culmination of years of tinkering and hard work.

One of the most prolific ventures that has come to light in recent months is "Second Wind," a fully-featured DLC that will add a ton of stuff to the game. According to the project creators, it'll contain "tons of new content including quests, weapons, NPCs, and enemies." It also allegedly "overhauls existing content," including shrines, and adds more crafting options on top of quality of life changes. 50 people were involved in bringing this to life.

One big revelation the team shared in terms of quality of life changes is a shop overhaul. You can sell food now, and more items will be available for sale. The project "requires the original game and DLC." You can find more info on the DLC's official site.

There's definitely a ton of untapped potential for Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and a few of Nintendo's top-selling Switch games, for that matter. While years of paid DLC isn't necessarily on everyone's wishlist, it would be great to get occasional free updates to keep things fresh, particularly for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Nintendo sold enough copies to justify a free track here and there!
