New Super Mario Bros. 2 will see paid DLC

by William Schwartz on June 22, 2012

Nintendo announced today that the upcoming New Super Mario Bros. 2 will have special paid DLC stages.  These stages will arrive post-launch, and will dig into the game’s “Coin Rush” mode.  No pricing details for the additional content was offered during the Nintendo Direct broadcast, and Iwata said that the paid DLC will be developed after the work on the main game has been completed.

This will be a new venture for Nintendo, it’ll be interesting to see how fans react to paid-DLC.  New Super Mario Bros. 2 on the 3DS will also be the first Nintendo title to be launched simultaneously on digital and retail marketplaces.

In the New Super Mario Bros. 2 game, the Mushroom Kingdom is bursting at the seams with an endless flow of gold coins for you to collect. Fly to dizzying heights with the return of Raccoon Mario, and grab the new Gold Flower that lets you turn almost anything in your path into coins. Explore levels filled with gold pipes leading to coin-filled caverns, gold enemies leaving behind trails of coins, and new items that will push your coin count into the stratosphere.

New Super Mario Bros. 2 will arrive on August 19th on the Nintendo 3DS.

    I’m not really excited to see Nintendo getting into paid DLC schemes, but something tells me that they’ll be the least agregious of the bunch.

    im bored to see the new mario 2 (???), and surely new new zelda, and brand new new newly super metroid….

    always the same games ever and ever.

    nintendo lost the guts a long time ago. grinding all money over the same characters, and now SURPRISE… over the same titles they made success more than 15 years ago.
