  • Soapbox Retail Games Cost Too Much To Download From The eShop

    Dazza lets off Steam about the cost to download

    Nintendo has to be applauded for fully embracing the digital age with the launch of the Wii U eShop. Most retail games are available for download from day one (well at least the ones I would consider buying anyway!) and for some, it’s a pretty convenient way to get the latest game. The 3DS has been...

  • News Nintendo Wanted To Take A Different Approach To DLC With New Super Luigi U

    A distinct move away from the packs found in New Super Mario Bros. 2

    New Super Luigi U has been available to download from the Wii U eShop for a short while and has breathed new life into New Super Mario Bros. U. Although, technically deemed DLC, it's a much longer experience than the downloadable software added to New Super Mario Bros. 2 and...

  • News StreetPass DLC System Update Finally Hits North America

    Rejoice!

    Back in June Europe and Japan received an update to the StreetPass Mii Plaza that not only gave it a shiny new layout and some other minor tweaks, but also four new paid-DLC games. North America received a system update minus the StreetPass content, which was a little baffling and frustrating for those that fancied bringing some spice to...

  • News Hideki Kamiya Believes The Wonderful 101 Won't Need DLC

    Platinum Games is squeezing a lot into it

    The Wonderful 101 is one of the biggest third party Wii U exclusives of the year and it is tantalisingly close to being released now. It's set to emerge on 23rd August in Europe and 15th September in North America and the team at Platinum Games is hard at work implementing the finishing touches. A few Wii U...

  • News Over 200,000 Gamers Have Bought StreetPass Mii Plaza DLC

    Paid for with real, not Play, coins

    Not too long ago Europe and Japan enjoyed an update to the StreetPass Mii Plaza, which brought a fresh layout and a batch of four new games to choose from. The catch is that these additions come at a price — they're £4.49 / €4.99 each, or there's a Combo pack of all four available for £13.49 / €14.99...

  • Hands On StreetPass Plaza's Downloadable Content

    Play Coin guzzlers

    A few days ago, Nintendo launched a surprise update to the 3DS's StreetPass Plaza in Europe and Japan. Previously home to Puzzle Swap and StreetPass Quest alone, users can now purchase a further four games to play with any Miis that they encounter when out and about. As with the other Plaza games, you can use the Mii of anybody...

  • Poll Are You in the DLC Brigade?

    More and more is on offer

    The arrival of New Super Luigi U — our review of which will be posted this weekend — is, as we've argued, a potential evolution of paid-DLC and budget retail titles, as Nintendo seeks to produce a package significant enough to be a fairly expensive (comparatively) piece of add-on software and, on the flipside, a...

  • Talking Point New Super Luigi U Opens The Door For Quick Expansions in Other Franchises

    DLC and boxed copies can satisfy everyone

    After a bit of a wait and a release lineup that, apart from the odd exception, has been drier than the Sahara desert in recent weeks, Luigi jumps to the rescue with New Super Luigi U. It's arrived in this week's Nintendo Download update as DLC for New Super Mario Bros. U, but will have a life of its own as a...

  • News Super Smash Bros. Will Have A Single Player Campaign

  • News It's Still Not Known If Batman: Arkham Origins DLC Is Coming To Wii U

    DLC "not available on all platforms"

    For some reason, DLC seems to be a dirty word as far as the Wii U is concerned. Mass Effect 3 players missed out, Sniper Elite V2 has recently launched with no downloadable content whatsoever and it's

  • News Capcom Outlines June DLC for Resident Evil Revelations

    And no, it doesn't include new levels

    A good while ago we picked up on the news that the Resident Evil Revelations re-release would have paid-DLC for its Raid mode, the arcade-style single and multiplayer shooting-fest that's actually a bit of a highlight.

    View of fictional character's butt is uncensored, millions rejoice

  • Talking Point DLC's Increasingly Important Role for Nintendo

    Games are a bit less 'final' than they used to be

    It's not so long ago that Sony and Microsoft's platforms began to drown in DLC (downloadable content) while, for Nintendo gamers, it was largely restricted to the occasional Guitar Hero or Rock Band track on Wii. Nintendo had an attitude of adopting online trends and practices in its own sweet time,...

  • News Rest Easy, Injustice: Gods Among Us DLC Will Be Hitting The Wii U This Summer

    Better late than never?

    Yesterday we reported that Wii U owners who had purchased Injustice: Gods Among Us were being left out of the DLC love-in currently being lapped up by PS3 and 360 players. Warner Bros. has — up to this point — been reluctant to divulge any details on when (or if) the downloadable content will be made available to Wii U...

  • News Wii U Owners Shunned Again As Warner Refuses To Reveal Injustice DLC Release Date

    "We have not made any DLC announcements for Wii U"

    If you own Injustice: Gods Among Us on the Xbox 360 or PS3, then you can enjoy some nice additional downloadable content right now. However, if you bought the same game for the Wii U — for the same price, naturally — then you're out of luck as far as DLC is concerned. At the time of release,...

  • Feature Robust DLC Ensures That Fire Emblem: Awakening Just Keeps On Giving

    We go hands-on with the map packs released in Europe so far

    Fire Emblem: Awakening is a truly amazing 3DS title, packing hours of compelling tactical action into one of the most entertaining games we've played all year. However, thanks to a growing selection of downloadable maps, the battle doesn't have to end when the credits roll. Before moving...

  • News Zen Studios Working on Star Wars Tables for Zen Pinball 2 on Wii U

    Still seeking the Force

    Zen Pinball 2 has been available on the Wii U for a good while now, but eager fans will have noticed the absence of the most recent high profile tables to grace rival platforms — those from the Star Wars franchise. The offering on Wii U has a good range, but it's seemed like another piece of DLC that's been left out on...

  • News Injustice: Gods Among Us For Wii U May Not Support Cross-Unlock Content With iOS Version

    Perhaps in a future update?

    Just days before its release in the UK, we were given unfortunate news that Injustice: Gods Among Us will miss its scheduled release date of 19th April this week in that region. For any Brits reading it's worth noting that it'll only be delayed by one week, launching on 26th April. Now, it seems, the spotlight has been...

  • News Resident Evil Revelations DLC Season Pass Revealed on Steam

    Delicious DLC, or horrifyingly disappointing add-ons?

    The upcoming Resident Evil Revelations re-release on Wii U is bringing some new features over its 3DS original — there'll be an "infernal" difficulty level, off-screen play for that, er, unique handheld experience, and you'll be able to troll other players by giving monsters speech bubbles with...

    "It's as simple as that"

    At the weekend we reported on the rather depressing news that the Wii U version of Need for Speed: Most Wanted may be missing out on DLC support.

Unfortunately, however, it appears that any future DLC for the...

  • Video Assassin's Creed III - Tyranny of King Washington's "Wolf Power" Has Some Bite

    It's a dog's life

    As a big-budget release, Assassin's Creed III was always destined to have a fair bit of DLC. After a couple of packs featuring extra missions and multiplayer bonuses — the latter's not recommended on Wii U due to the lack of an active online community — it got to the main event, The Tyranny of King Washington. It's a new...

  • News New Fire Emblem: Awakening DLC Details Battle For Attention

    There's a lot of extra content

    Downloadable content is still a bit of an alien concept for many Nintendo gamers.

    With a big-budget release on the scale of Assassin's Creed III, you can be confident that one thing will definitely make an appearance — DLC.
