Nintendo to offer DLC in 2012 for the 3DS

Recent reports suggest that Nintendo is getting set to introduce paid DLC to its Japanese 3DS customers. With the release of Fire Emblem early next year, the company will offer an expansion for the game that is said to cost “several hundred yen”, according to Joystiq.

While this marks a milestone for the company on the path to what many gamers would consider “the dark side”, it will however offer Nintendo an avenue to expand on their great library of first party titles.

The Nikkei report suggests that this first DLC offering will be a gateway for further offerings down the line with the handheld, as well as with the upcoming Nintendo Wii U which is destined to hit store shelves sometime in 2012.

    I’m not into DLC. Unless DLC is expected as in World of Warcraft. DLC makes people pay for subscription and it makes Azeroth go forever more. But, Fire Emblem is king and DLC will make the game last longer for less money and (wo)manpower. DLC is perfect for such misunderstood games which will never bring in as much money as they spend on making them. Oopona, Dewey’s Adventure, One Piece: Unlimited Adventure/Cruise part 1&2…

    DLC? Nah, its better to buy the game or provide the DLC free. But no one would buy the game then :P
