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!
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?
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?
Not that this should come as a surprise to absolutely anyone, but Satoru Iwata has said in his recent financial briefing that the most sales of the new StreetPass games were from Japan, with literally 75% of the sales coming from there.
As well as downloadable content. So if you don’t feel like waiting for the title to download or want to keep it seperate from New Super Mario Bros U, you’ll also be able to go into a shop and just buy the game straight up. The retail version also doesn’t require you to own New Super Mario Bros U to play it. Here’s the box art for the game: Another change the game has that was revealed at today’s Nintendo Direct is that of who you can play as in multiplayer mode. You see, to avoid overshadowing Luigi, Mario isn’t in this game in any way whatsoever. Instead, Nabbit (the character who steals items in single player) is playable! Here […]
Earlier today, Amazon added a listing to its website for a game called ‘New Super Luigi U’ for Nintendo 3DS. Now as any Nintendo fan probably knows, such a game never existed, it was just an incorrect term used for the Luigi focused New Super Mario Bros U downloadable content. Above: This is not possible on a 3DS people. But now they’ve sort of fixed it. Voila: New Super Luigi U As you can clearly see, the page now gives the right title and rightfully lists it as a Wii U game. Good job there Amazon, nice to see you fixed it soon after everyone online told you the original listing was wrong! P.S. Although their listing is still pretty […]
Before we begin, let me reiterate one thing; Nintendo are not planning on adding downloadable content to Luigi’s Mansion 2, at least not as far as I know. But assuming they would now add some now that downloadable content is a proper thing in Nintendo games, here are the things I’d want in some DLC for the game. 1. More Thrill Tower/ScareScraper Variety First things first, the ScareScraper/Thrill Tower is absolutely fantastic as is. I love all the options you can choose from, the random designs are pretty neat, the music is great… hell, the cool bosses you can encounter only here are fantastic. But there are a few things I wish were added in this mode. For a start, […]
Really though, did anyone honestly expect them to update this version of the game? For one thing, it came out prior to any 3DS game getting DLC in the first place, so it might not even have the proper game structure to make downloadable content possible. The new content utilises features and hardware not possible on the 3DS. Not to mention the rather obvious minor fact that: They don’t want to make it cheap for anyone to get the new content. They want people to pay out fifty dollars or so for the remake, not just spend a tiny amount of cash on some DLC packs or whatever. Besides, when did the idea of a remake or sequel become seen […]
In an interesting article by Polygon, they discuss someone who wrote in to Super Smash Bros producer Masahiro Sakurai complaining about the online multiplayer in Super Smash Bros Brawl. He said that “The other day, I had my first run at Smash Bros. Brawl online play. What I found was that nobody ever went on the attack; it was like everyone was taking the approach of waiting for the other guy to take the offensive. There were no items, either. I wanted to shout at them ‘This isn’t how you do Smash Bros.’!” and finished by asking Sakurai what he thought of this style of battling in the game. Or in other words, what Sakurai thought of the ‘no items, final destination’ style […]
