Nintendo has confirmed downloadable content for Mario Golf: World Tour, which will be available when the 3DS title is released in early May. For golfing fans who simply can’t get enough of the greenery, a further 108 holes can be downloaded from the Nintendo eShop in three different packs, priced at $5.99 each.
The first DLC named the Mushroom Pack will launch on May 2 to coincide with the title’s release, while the Flower pack sprouts up in late May, and finally the Star Pack will aim for a June release. All DLC packs contain two new 18-hole courses and a new playable character – Toadette within Mushroom, Nabbit within Flower and Rosalina within the Star pack.
For pro-golfers who would like to download all three, a season pass can be purchased at the discount price of $14.99 from May 2. Nintendo will also offer a special Gold Mario – who has a fantastic Golden Flower shot, giving players coins for every yard it travels – as a playable character for season pass holders. Gold Mario will also be available after the third pack has been released for those who purchase all three packs separately. Nintendo of America’s sales and marketing VP Scott Moffitt said the following in support of the DLC:
“We’re letting fans expand their experience with Mario Golf: World Tour. Some players might be content hitting the links on the numerous courses already included with the game, while others will appreciate the option of being able to add to their fairway fun with new courses and characters.”
