Return to New Super Mario Bros. 2 with DLC

Yes, it’s that time… the DLC for New Super Mario Bros. 2 has been announced rather suddenly, in a Japanese Nintendo Direct hosted by Satoru Iwata. He announced three new level packs, all set for release on October 2nd in Japan, each at the price of ¥200 (which is around $2 USD). The level packs will expand Coin Rush Mode.

The “Survival Panic Pack” will include three very difficult courses, which will be a welcome challenge for Mario fans who breezed through the new game. “Gold Mario Go! Go! Pack” will contain three new stages of the easier variety, with the challenge goal of 30,000 coins. The third pack is called “Challenge the Record Pack”, which contains three high-score challenge timed stages—and for this one, fast players will see their ranking on Nintendo Japan’s website.

While we don’t have official details for the rest of the world yet, in the meantime you can check out the Japanese Nintendo Direct presentation on Nintendo World Report (

Faith likes games and books and cake and writing and Lara Croft, not necessarily in that order. She also thinks a Skylanders cartoon show is a really, REALLY good idea...
