Mario Golf: World Tour DLC and Season Pass outlined

Tuesday, 22nd April 2014 13:39 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Mario Golf: World Tour comes with 10 courses and 126 holes and players will have the option to expand the game by purchasing up to 108 additional holes and additional Mushroom Kingdom golfers through DLC.

Mario-Gold-World-Tour

The DLC will be released in three separate packs: the Mushroom Pack launching on May 2 alongside the game; the Flower Pack launching later in May and the Star Pack launching in June.

Each pack includes two new 18-hole courses and a new playable character. Players will receive Toadette with the Mushroom Pack, Nabbit with the Flower Pack and Rosalina with the Star Pack.

“We’re letting fans expand their experience with Mario Golf: World Tour,” said Scott Moffitt, NoA’s executive VP of Sales & Marketing. “Some players might be content hitting the links on the numerous courses already included with the game, while others will appreciate the option of being able to add to their fairway fun with new courses and characters.”

Each pack will be available for $5.99 from Toad’s Booth, which can be found in the main menu of the game.

Mario Golf: World Tour owners can buy the Season Pass for $14.99 starting May 2. Season Pass holders will get access to each new pack as it becomes available, and will receive a special bonus of Gold Mario as a playable character at the time of purchase.

Gold Mario has a special Golden Flower shot that gains coins for every yard it travels. For those who purchase all three packs individually, Gold Mario will also be available once all packs have been released.

Nintendo will also offer Trial Tournaments for consumers interested in trying out a sample of the downloadable courses, and those who download the Trial Pack will be able to participate in these online tournaments.

More information on other tournaments players can participate in, can be found through a previous Mario Gold post.

    I assume this is an error? The person who wrote this has no idea this is a 3DS game?

    @Nickwpearce Of course. I just got the formats mixed up with Super Smash Bros. It happens when you have to remember a gazillion release dates, and formats when writing 30 posts a day. It happens. And it’s been fixed.

    That’s almost as many courses as the launch game.

    It’s safe to say none of these are actually courses that was worked on after the game was complete, but is just stuff ripped from the game and pawned off as “expanding content”.

    Fuck that. No thank you.

    Wow! So this is the first Nintendo game to have a season pass AFAIK, they are adapting but this wasn’t a particular i had in mind.

    But adapting is adapting.

    @Nickwpearce Np and thanks for the heads up!

    @Legendaryboss I thought so too, but I didn’t want to say that just in case.

    @Legendaryboss ,
    Wait, I heard some very contrary from some Nintendo hardcore fans back in the dark days of VG247, how Ninty was special since it never did DLCs and Season passes, the “supposedly” killers of industry.

    But, as you said, good for them. As long as they can make as much money as possible and keep customers happy, its a win win, for all, except a small group of those who shall not be named.

    3DS game indeed

    They’re enduring a lot of pressure from their investors, it’s clear that Iwata shouldn’t be re-elected as CEO in June I hope someone less stubborn and more OPEN ot the reamity of the market will be in charge of Nintendo, someone who knows that Casual games, no metroid, no advance wars is NOT what we want, and the WiiU doens’t need games that have a life expectancy of 10 hours but game that promote both the gamepad and a solid gameplay

    I dont like this, i think they could release this with the initial game, maybe the investor behind the idea of nickel for jumping has a louder voice and weight than i thought it has, if things goes this way from now on, and nintendo heads, sucumbs to the wiiu performance pressure for the inside and outside, it will might have the contrary effect of what they are hoping for. This are not the things nintendo should adopt, not the bad practices but the good ones.
