If one of your main reasons for picking up a Wii U at launch is to play New Super Mario Bros. U then you’ll be pleased to know that Nintendo is currently preparing new courses for the game that will be released as DLC at some point in the future.
In the latest ‘Iwata Asks’ interview Nintendo president Satoru Iwata quizzes members of the development team about what kind of additional courses New Super Mario Bros. U fans can expect in the future. Here’s an extract from their exchange:
Tezuka: Yes. We also are planning additional courses.
Iwata: As with New Super Mario Bros. 2 for the Nintendo 3DS, you’re talking about the additional courses.
Tezuka: Yes. We’re trying to think of ways of play that are different from New Super Mario Bros. 2, but we haven’t made anything yet! (laughs)
Iwata: Right, rather than distributing content that’s premade at a later date, you’re going to start working on it now.
Iwamoto: Yes. The mechanism for adding courses is already there, so please stand by for an update on what they’ll be like.
What kind of DLC courses would you like to play in New Super Mario Bros. U? Let us know in the comments.
The game is out now in the US and will be available alongside the Wii U console on November 30th in European territories. Head over here for El33tonline’s extensive coverage of this system seller.
