Yeah, I meant like Mario Kart or SSB...


Mario Kart Wii U might get dlc.

Smash Bros probably won't. Sakurai is quite against it.


i hope you mean paid dlc. because brawl had some dlc(it literaally had downloadable content) and nintendo had said they were against paid dlc before...

"Why don't they make a full game and sell you half as retail and half later on as DLC?"

Why would anyone support this anyway?

Not all dlc is like that. Especially Nintendo's dlc.

You mean "If they make a full game plus DLC in one shot I'm going to cry that they removed content even though the DLC was only ever going to be DLC and was never actually removed from the game"? The only examples I can think of with actual removed content are the Street Fighter 4 costumes (unlockable in arcades, later removed for consoles) and Vurtua Fighter 5 (same as SF4).

You don't like on disc DLC. We get that. Don't be a b**** about it and lie about what it is.

People generally don't consider fan-created content as DLC.

and nintendo had said they were against paid dlc before...


Source?

Nintendo very clearly has no qualms with using it.

Nintendo are against making people pay to get a more complete game. As such, all DLC they'll produce for their games are classed as optional extras

Pretty much this.. NSMB2 was completed before they even started making the DLC level... or even thought of having them.... so not all DLC is bad or "on disk"

And if Nintendo released more DLC, it'll be like that... Extras for games that ARE completed...

Nintendo stated they were against doing things like making a game and then stripping things out of it to release as DLC. But they're all for making things that are completely extra for paid DLC
