It’s Japan only so far, but features costumes for Link and Zelda based on their appearances in the Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess. So hey, if you don’t like Link’s spiffy new scarf and want to see him looking as he does in Twilight Princess, you’re soon going to get your chance. Here are some pictures of Link and Zelda’s appearances in this DLC set, if you’ve somehow forgotten what The Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess used to look like on the Gamecube/Wii: This DLC for the game will be released around the same time as the game, with different costumes available in different versions of the game and the sets with Link and Zelda being called the ‘Courage’ and […]
So if you want a real life car for Mario and friends to drive in Mario Kart 8… well, you’ll soon get your chance. The special Mercedes style kart is being released over here in Summer this year, and will likely be free like it is in Japan. Head inside if you want to see Nintendo’s Twitter posts about it…
It’s only a rumour so far, but this interesting picture of an expanded Mario Kart 8 roster has been circulating online recently. It features Diddy Kong, Birdo, Kamek and Plessie (the latter is from Mario 3D World) as playable alongside the existing game’s cast, hinting at a Nintendo E3 announcement of downloadable content featuring more characters for the game. Here’s the picture: As you can see, it features quite the cast of characters. And it looks pretty realistic too, what with the quality of the icons and the level of detail in the picture. But what do you think? Is this a screenshot of an upcoming piece of DLC for Mario Kart 8, complete with new characters? Or another ingenius […]
As per the official website, which shows a pretty clear ‘DLC’ link in the navbar for some undefined future purpose. Here’s a picture: Seems pretty clear to me! Guess Nintendo and Tecmo Koei already have plans for downloadable content for this game, presumably in the form of such things as new levels, characters and equipment. Which could be a good thing, assuming that nothing’s been cut out to save for a future release in this form. But what do you think? Do you like the idea of Hyrule Warriors having DLC? Does the idea of a navbar link for it prior to the game’s release make you wary? What do you think about this feature’s inclusion in the game?
Want to see what Nabbit, Rosalina and Toadette look like in action? What characters and courses are included in each DLC pack? If so, head past the break and keep reading, since we have a freak ton of awesome screenshots for you Mario Golf fans!
And to be honest, I’m not sure whether I like most of them. They seem like some rather questionable choices for new characters and course ideas, especially given their… close connection to the New Super Mario Bros series. Let’s start with good news first though. Rosalina is confirmed playable. And in a move that might please some people (I guess), Toadette is also confirmed as playable. As for the rest… you’ll have to keep reading to see it!
Well, that’s certainly a game I never expected Nintendo to be selling paid downloadable content for! Apparently though, that’s exactly where they’re going to be doing, with the 3DS game having both ‘additional paid downloadable courses’ and ‘special trial tournaments’ according to the eShop description. So what kind of downloadable courses do you expect (or hope) to see? I personally hope to see a few based on other Mario games and spinoffs, like the RPGs, Donkey Kong Country, Wario Land or WarioWare, but I have this sneaking suspicion I’ll be disappointed yet again. But what do you want for downloadable courses in Mario Golf World Tour?
And believe me, it does look amazing. Charge through Hyrule Field as Sonic (while wearing Link’s signature clothing), collecting rupees and heart containers along the way! Defeat Stalchildren from Ocarina of Time, who for some reason are now outside during the day time! Watch Link fly by on a Loftwing from The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword! So if you want to see the footage for yourself, watch the video after the break…
When it comes to implementing DLC in their games, you have to admit Nintendo is one of the better companies in the market. After all, we get actual ‘add on’ content like New Super Luigi U and extra characters/campaigns for titles like Pikmin 3 and Fire Emblem Awakening for goodness sake. But there’s one thing that’s been bugging me for a while now. Namely, when the heck are we getting more DLC for well… more interesting titles?
In a part of the Nintendo Direct that many people may not have noticed (because only Nintendo of America covered this in their presentation at all), there’s talk of ‘exclusive content for Mario Kart 7 and Mario 3D Land’ coming soon to the 3DS. Yes, DLC/content for games that’s been out nearly two years.
