New Super Mario Bros. U, much like its handheld counterpart, will be receiving downloadable content. The latest Iwata Asks confirms that additional courses are planned for the game:

Tezuka: Yes. We also are planning additional courses.

Iwata: As with New Super Mario Bros. 2 for the Nintendo 3DS, you’re talking about the additional courses.

Tezuka: Yes. 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! (laughs)

Iwata: Right, rather than distributing content that’s premade at a later date, you’re going to start working on it now.

Iwamoto: Yes. The mechanism for adding courses is already there, so please stand by for an update on what they’ll be like.

Nintendo first introduced DLC for the Mario franchise with New Super Mario Bros. 2 on 3DS. “U” will be the first console Mario with DLC courses.

    I like this site but as you are the owner of Nintendo Everything too, you seem biased towards them which is very unprofessional. You started out your post of DLC characters for PlayStation All-Stars getting DLC characters as “The game isnt even out yet but DLC is already announced” clearly putting it in a negative light yet NSMBU is doing the same thing and you have absolutely no problem with it

    Again, I go here for my updates because you do a good job keeping the news up to date, but if you are going to show “Pro-Nintendo, Anti-Sony” nature in your writing that only “fanboys” let exude from them then you are messing with the very integrity of your Gaming Everything site

      Jorge,

      I’m sorry you feel that way. When I mentioned “The game isnt even out yet but DLC is already announced” for the PlayStation All-Stars post, that was not intended to be interpreted as a put-down. On the other hand, I don’t feel that this post necessarily makes it seem as though DLC is a good thing.

      Ironically, I own a PlayStation 3 and have been playing that much more than any other Nintendo console! I also plan on picking up PlayStation All-Stars sometime after its release.

      I’ll try to do a better job at making sure posts don’t have any sort of biases, since, again, that’s not my intention.
