New Super Mario Bros 2 gets its first DLC - watch the new Coin Rush action here

The first ever DLC for a core Mario game is upon us, or at least upon Japanese gamers as there's no concrete release date for the UK/US just yet. It's new levels for Coin Rush mode in New Super Mario Bros 2 on 3DS, available to purchase from an in-game shop. Son't say Nintendo never moves with the times.

There are three packs, each costing 200 Yen (which is about £1.60). The Go! Go! Gold Mario pack is first, offering three new courses and 30,000 coins to collect.

The other two packs consist of a high score reward pack called 'Challenge The Record' which will post the names of top players on the New Super Mario Bros 2 website, and the 'Survival Panic Pack' which is said to be super-difficult. It sounds (and looks) great, as ultra-hardcore 2D Mario is something of a rarity these days.

A SpotPass notice on 2 October will announce the arrival of the shop, which will become available as a button at the bottom of the Coin Rush menu.

    These are interesting especially the Gold Mario Themed pack and the Extra Hard challenge pack. Gold Mario is god like whose not invincible, more levels set around him and to get allot of coins can flesh him out. MY BODY IS READY FOR YOUR EXTRA HARD LEVELS
