New Super Mario Bros. U DLC confirmed, first details teased

Friday, 16th November 2012 10:01 GMT By Dave Cook

Nintendo has embraced the DLC generation it seems, as New Super Mario Bros. U follows the example laid down by its baby brother New Super Mario Bros. 2 on 3DS. The developer has hinted at incoming content as part of a new Iwata Asks session. Check out the tease below.

ONM reports that New Super Mario Bros. producer Takashi Tekuza said the team is, “Planning additional courses,” for the game, although he suggested that the content could be a long way off yet.

“We’re trying to think of ways of play that are different from New Super Mario Bros. 2, but we haven’t made anything yet.”

Meanwhile, New Super Mario Bros. reviews are hitting a favourable consistency. Check out our score round up here.

What’s your view of Nintendo getting on the DLC gravy train? Let us know below.

    I typically don’t buy DLC, but I think they could truly make a killing if they released a whole new full world (like Mutant Mushroom World, Paper World or Pikmin World or some shit) with new power-ups (the Goomba suit, the 2D suit or the pikmin suit). Not only would it make financial sense, it would make sense in the Mario World too.

    @1 I’d pay to replay remakes of old Super Mario World levels. I’m that shallow.

    Dave man, that’s not shallow. SuperMarioWorld is probably the greatest platformer ever crafted, it’d be rude NOT to buy a sexy remake of it. That’d be enough to push me over the cliff and get a Wii U!
