Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is already a monster of a JRPG right out of the gates, but that hasn’t stopped Nintendo and developer Monolith Soft from packing in even more content via the game’s Expansion Pass along with free updates, as well. The latest update has gone live in the form of Version 1.3.0 of the title, and with it has come a bevy of new features and items. Here’s what to expect from both the free and paid updates, straight from Nintendo!

Free update (Version 1.3.0)
