Nintendo remake Super Mario Bros levels for a New Super Mario Bros 2 DLC pack

Update! Gold Classics Pack out now in UK

Is this the best Nintendo DLC ever? Nintendo have remade levels from original Super Mario Bros games for a special New Super Mario Bros 2 DLC pack called Gold Classics Pack. What's more, it's free to download now!

Satoru Iwata announced Gold Classics Pack during a special Nintendo Direct mini broadcast in Japan. This afternoon, Nintendo also confirmed that the Golden Classic Course is available now from the 3DS eShop.

Apparently, the Gold Classics Pack is being released in Japan to celebrate the fact that 300 billion coins have now been collected in the game.

The pack includes remade versions of 1-1, 1-2 and 1-4 from Super Mario Bros plus 1-1 and 1-5 from Super Mario Bros 3. Each level features hidden routes and if you find them, you'll arrive in other classic areas.

The Gold Classics Pack is free to download between 27 November and 31 January 2013. It will be available to purchase from 1 February 2013.

Check out the Gold Classics Pack in the video below.

    Very cool that it is free, although I wonder if we will see this pack for free also?

    It'd be really nice if that offer translates over here. The fact that there are secret routes allowing you to discover different stages, plus it's fan-pleasing retro factor, makes this a really appealing add-on.

    Coin Rush,the answer to the worlds debt crises.

    Despite being easy, I love the new pack. I got over 4500 coins from it.

    Great pack, easily the best out of all released so far. I managed to get just over 15000 coins on my first attempt. :D :lol: :mrgreen:

    Ha! It is no longer under maintenance, and is too awesome for words. (Maybe slight exaggeration...) :D
