Today Nintendo announced that it will be trekking into the territory of DLC with Mario Golf: World Tour, which has received some mixed reactions from fans, particularly because the content will be available on release day.

Three packs have been confirmed for the game, each containing two 18-hole courses and a playable character, at a cost of $5.99 each. In the same vein as season passes, Nintendo will also be offering the option to download all three packs at once and includes Gold Mario, whose Golden Flower shot pumps out coins for every yard the shot travels. Fret not, as Gold Mario will be available for players that download the packs individually and will receive him after purchasing the final pack that releases in June. While Nintendo of Europe will be offering the “season pass” at a special discounted price from May 2 – May 31, North America will be able to download it at a fixed price of $14.99 beginning May 2.

Owners of the game will be able to check out the new courses for free in Trial Tournaments.

    Now, I know at SOME point I’ll be let down, but I get excited when I see that a Nintendo game has DLC! My rationale is Nintendo releases games stuffed with content, and thus the DLC serves its true purpose of being ADDITIONAL content on top of that. So, yeah… season pass for me!

      For me it’s more about the fact that they haven’t created much of it, but still try to approach it in a genuine way. Fire Emblem’s DLC was just fantastic, even without paying!

    I’m fairly happy with it, honestly. It looks like the stand-alone version of the game has as much content as I could have hoped, and getting the additional bits is a cost I’m willing to pay.

    Looking forward to picking mine up on Friday!

    This seems like really good form as far as DLC goes. The packs sound like they add a lot of new stuff and game volume, as opposed to just opening parts of the game that should have been there to begin with.

    It’s also nice to see additional levels that may be enjoyed in something other than a rushed super-time-constrained mode. New Mario 2 and Pikmin 3 both sort of rubbed me the wrong way there – if I buy extra game content, I want to be able to soak it all in, not just frantically try to race through it. Come to think of it New Luigi U was the same way. Dammit, the first big non-rushed Nintendo DLC comes along and I’m not that interested in the base game! :^)
