Nintendo will be releasing additional content for New Super Mario Bros. 2 following its August 19 launch, which also happens to be the day the 3DS XL will release in North America. The announcement was made today during the Nintendo Direct presentation, where viewers were assured that the add-on content would not be developed until after New Super Mario Bros. 2 hits store shelves.
The DLC will consist of new Coin Rush stages, which will be created by Nintendo and molded by gamers’ input. Because, ya know, it would be pretty cheap and dastardly if the company already had all this stuff made and was just holding out on releasing it to make a quick buck post-launch.
Still, as much as I like the idea of Nintendo embracing DLC, I can’t shake the feeling that this is a quick cash grab for the Big N. I guess that’s why it’s paid DLC, right? Only folks who really want it will drop the cash for it. Also, doesn’t my header image totally fit with the theme of this post?
