New Super Mario Bros U DLC confirmed

No release date confirmed by Nintendo are working on new courses

New Super Mario Bros U DLC has been confirmed by the game's producer Takashi Tekuza.

Yes, New Super Mario Bros U will follow in the footsteps of New Super Mario Bros 2 and offer extra courses for fans to download in the future. However, Nintendo have yet to confirm a release date for the DLC which will be different from New Super Mario Bros 2's extras.

Speaking during a special Iwata Asks ahead of the game's US release date this weekend, Tezuka confirmed that Nintendo are "planning additional courses."

"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!

New Super Mario Bros U is one of the best Wii U games.

    I really hope they do something special with the DLC, and not just extra challenges. The 3DS DLC is fun, but as they don"t have Coin Rush Here, I hope they make something like retro-style levels or levels with additional enemies or powerups. That will make the DLC much more worthwhile. Oh, and if they make DLC limited to Boost Rush Mode, I will be very annoyed.

    I don't particularly like the way they released a steady trickle of small packs with 3 levels for Ł3 each on NSMB2.

    I'd rather they just make one large single player story campaign expansion DLC pack for Ł15. I've had an idea for while, of Nintendo releasing a side story DLC. A short-ish 3 world (5 levels and a castle per world) pack, with original level aesthetics and designs. Call it something "Baron Bear-Moles Revenge" and have like an army of Monty moles swarm the mushroom kingdom. Release it some time 4 to-6 months from now and that would be great!

    Be interesting to see what size these DLC vary or if Nintendo will put a size limit on them.

    Some people say DLC is a scam that makes people buy it due to the fact that there missing something, but for me, DLC is the best idea ever for a game like NSMBU, the worst thing about some games is that they are absolutely amazing, but they are quite short, to me DLC is a way to extending the game entirely, Nintendo also have the best DLC out of all the console producers, I ordered a ps3 with call of duty MW3, which additionally came with the first two map packs, then i decided to research how much it would of cost without the dlc, it would of cost me Ł23 for the two packs :evil: , then once i had heard nintendo making dlc packs for NSMB 3DS, i was shocked by the low prices, nintendo is by far the best console at DLC :D
