An unexpected Nintendo Direct mini was published by Nintendo's Japanese division just a short while ago. The video reveals that, at least in Japan, a new "Golden Classic Course Pack" for New Super Mario Bros. 2 will be free for a limited time. The Big N is making this offer available to celebrate the news of 300 billion coins collected in the game worldwide.
Each of the DLC's levels are based on ones found in Mario titles of old. Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata said that questionnaire feedback helped the team in determining which courses would be included.
Remade levels from Super Mario Bros. include 1-1, 1-2, and 1-4. Super Mario Bros. 3's 1-1 and 1-5 will be represented, too. Courses feature hidden routes, and if you come across them, you'll wind up in other classic areas.
Players can download the Golden Classic Course Pack for free between November 27 and January 1. From then on, it'll cost 200 yen.
