Later this week, Splatoon will be receiving a major update, adding a wealth of new content to the game, including new modes, weapon types, and an increased level cap– all for free. Not only does this make an already addictive shooter even more compelling, it represents Nintendo’s full embrace of post-release content, a practice that the company had long resisted. Splatoon is only the latest game to receive such a significant amount of extras following its launch; both the Wii U and 3DS versions of Super Smash Bros. have seen a steady stream of new characters and costumes over the past few months, while Mario Kart 8 has received two masterful DLC packs since its release last May.

With such a great string of add-on content lately, we’d like to know, which Nintendo game do you think has received the best DLC so far? Cast your vote in our poll below, and be sure to sound off in the comments section!

    Well, as I’m not a fan of Smash Bros. and never have been, Mario Kart 8 for sure gets my vote. I’m not a huge fan of dlc since it rips off the consumer, but in the case of Nintendo they have done dlc right. As in releasing more content AFTER the game is complete and released, not the scam known as “day 1” dlc. I haven’t picked up Splatoon yet so can’t comment on dlc for that, but plan to pick up the game later this year.

    Mario Kart 8 offers the biggest bang for your buck for sure. I was very satisfied with the price I paid for all those extra tracks. So it definitely gets my vote.

    I also really like Pikmin 3’s model of DLC, where it offered you some content for free before you decided if you wanted to pay for more. (In my opinion the mission mode is the least fun part of the series, so I didn’t purchase it)

    Splatoon gets a few points off in my book for having some content locked behind physical figurines that haven’t been restocked. I’ve been ready to buy the 3-Pack since I finished the story mode, but unless I want to pay more than I did for the game itself I won’t be able to.

    I forgot about the Pikmin dlc, will look at that. Interesting that you mention Splatoon and the content locked behind Amiibo. I read an article earlier where this concern was raised, and it is cause for concern as Nintendo has sold more Amiibo than Wii U consoles. I don’t like this model and will stop buying Nintendo products if this happens. If they continue to release dlc the correct way and don’t hold content hostage in some action figure that no one can find, then fine. The writer of that article raised some valid concerns, which going toward the NX will likely be front and center. I guess it’s a wait and see game.

    MK8 for sure, but Smash and Splatoon are close behind. I’m really enjoying all these Smash updates, but I want more MK8!

    I second wanting more Mario Kart 8 content. That game is amazing, in my opinion the best since Mario Kart 64. But, I may be biased since “back in the day” I played MK64 on a HUGE wall via a projection TV at a friends house. The guy had a screen for it, but this giant wall was WAY better, especially when the room was blacked out. 4 player with extension cables, that was awesome.

    I was always a Double Dash man, myself. Mario Kart 8 has totally dethroned it, but I really do wish they’d reintroduce dual karts as an option at some point. It added some neat strategy and customization.

    I actually didn’t play much of Double Dash, don’t know why. I have it, so maybe it’s time to revisit that one. I have all of them, and I think out of all of them I never played that one enough to have an opinion on it. I agree putting dual karts as an option again would be a good idea, I mean why not? It does add some variety to the gameplay. On another note, I never played much of the original Mario Kart either, probably the same amount as Double Dash. I disliked the split screen is what it was. At the end of the day, all of them are awesome in their own way though. I’m so far behind on games I haven’t played in general, that I’m not sure I’ll ever catch up! Life gets in the way, and I sure wish I had the extra time to dig in to some titles I started and never picked up again. For example-it took me over 16 years to finally finish Ocarina Of Time, and then on the 3DS. For whatever reason, for me it didn’t hold a candle to A Link To The Past. So, I’m glad I finally finished that one, it is great. I’ve noticed that I prefer the 2D Zelda games over 3D-like Phantom Hourglass, Minish Cap, etc. When A Link Between Worlds came out it was a matter of a few weeks and I was done with that.
