New Super Mario Bros. 2  



New Super Mario Bros. 2 getting DLC level packs


10:30 PM on 09.27.2012



[Update: Slight mistake on my part. All three announced level packs will be available on October 2, with additional unannounced packs appearing later.]

Ooooooh, those sneaky Nintendo devils! Out of the blue, they announce a special Nintendo Direct for the very same evening, getting our knickers in a twist, just to announce DLC levels for New Super Mario Bros. 2. And here I was hoping to finally learn news about the Wii U's online features, but I suppose Nintendo could always surprise us with yet another Nintendo Direct at, like, 4 AM on a Tuesday or something.

The best thing to come out of tonight's announcement would definitely have to be Nintendo President Satoru Iwata's disembodied polygonal head. He could give Dr. Kawashima a run for his money!

It would seem that this three-pack set of NSMB2 levels will appear on October 2, with another coming later in October and a third in November, all for ¥200 apiece. We should be receiving the same news from the American branch in a few minutes, so I'll update with the relevant US information at that time.

Rumor: Ness amiibo leaked, selling on Chinese auction site

A Ness amiibo has been spotted for sale on a Chinese auction site and appears to be in European packaging. Currently it sits at about $55, though I don't imagine that price will stay there for long. Comparing the images in the gallery to the official Ness amiibo pictures, I'd say it looks to be the real deal. What do you think, real or fake? Ness amiibo leaked in China [My amiibo News]more
