Surprise Nintendo Direct Mini: New Super Mario Bros. 2 ‘Golden Classic’ DLC Pack

Satoru Iwata pulled back the curtain on one of New Super Mario Bros. 2‘s last pieces of DLC: the Golden Classic Pack. This pack’s based on classic Super Mario Bros. stages, including Worlds 1-1, 1-2, and 1-4 from the original NES classic, plus Worlds 1-1 and 1-5 from Super Mario Bros. 3 and even a stage based on the classic Mario Bros. arcade game! These aren’t designed to be challenging so much as terrific homages to the plumber’s storied 2D history.

They’ll be available free of charge in Japan from now until January 31, 2013. No word yet on whether the same deal will extend to the West, but here’s hoping! I loved the first piece of DLC, but couldn’t justify the expense for the second. Getting the third for free sounds terrific to me!

Hop inside to take a look!
