The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, the long-awaited sequel to 2017’s Breath of the Wild, might receive DLC after the game’s launch. While Nintendo has yet to officially announce any post-launch support for the anticipated game, its website contains a line of text that seemingly confirms that DLC will happen at some point.
When you visit the official website for The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, you’ll notice a line of text at the bottom that states: “**Full version of game required to use DLC. Sold separately.” The use of the double asterisks can’t be traced to any other information on the site, so it’s possible that this information was posted a little earlier than planned.

Breath of the Wild received multiple expansions after its launch, including The Master Trials and The Champions’ Ballad, so it’s not far-fetched to assume that Tears of the Kingdom will also receive downloadable content. The only difference now is that the DLC plans were posted before the base game’s launch, presumably by accident.
Tears of the Kingdom is set to launch this May exclusively for Nintendo Switch, promising full exploration on both the lands of Hyrule as well as its skies. The official description for the game reads:
“An epic adventure across the land and skies of Hyrule awaits in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom for the Nintendo Switch system. The adventure is yours to create in a world fueled by your imagination. In this sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, you’ll decide your own path through the sprawling landscapes of Hyrule and the mysterious islands floating in the vast skies above. Can you harness the power of Link’s new abilities to fight back against the malevolent forces that threaten the kingdom?”
The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom launches on 12 May 2023 for Nintendo Switch.
