New Super Mario Bros U getting new courses as DLC

You might be among the lucky ones to snag a Wii U this weekend, and our own Andrew Yoon claims New Super Mario Bros U is a must-have for the system. But if you marathon through the game as soon as you get it, don't worry. More courses are on the way.

In the latest Iwata Asks, producer Takashi Tekuza said that they are currently planning "additional courses." Nintendo president Satoru Iwata then clarified that he was referring to downloadable content similar to what the company did for New Super Mario Bros 2.

"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!" he said. "The mechanism for adding courses is already there, so please stand by for an update on what they'll be like."

Pricing wasn't announced for the packs. On the 3DS, they cost $2.50 apiece, but new stages for a full HD console title would probably be a bit more.
