We’ve previously known that the Wii U will support DLC (downloadable content), and now Nintendo has confirmed that its first party games will be getting DLC as well. In particular, so far only New Super Mario Bros U is said to be getting DLC in the future.
The news was revealed by NSMB U producer Takashi Tekuza in the latest Iwata Asks, where he said that there will be DLC for the game, but didn’t give any time frame as to when we might expect this.
New Super Mario Bros U would be perfect for DLC, and we can imagine all sorts of things Nintendo could release, including new characters, new levels, game modes, and more. It will be interesting to see if Nintendo Land will get DLC in the form of new attractions and mini-games.
But if you’re looking to get some of this downloadable content, you should probably invest in an external hard drive, as the Basic Wii U only has about 3 GB of storage or games and downloads.
