Ubisoft Has No Plans To Release DLC For ZombiU

But it remains a "possibility"

Downloadable content is still a bit of an alien concept for many Nintendo gamers. We’ve had some DLC made available for 3DS titles with the likes of Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy and New Super Mario Bros. 2 having content through internal stores, and Wii had rare instances too, but now that Wii U has arrived the scope...

Try not to get too worked up — Nintendo president Satoru Iwata wants to assure us that...
