"New Super Mario Bros. 2" DLC Hits North America This Week

Three Coin Rush packs to be released at $2.50 each on October 4

Last week we posted Nintendo's video detailing the release of New Super Mario Bros. 2 Coin Rush DLC in Japan. It's out now over there, and today Nintendo announced the official plans for North America, where the three packs will be released for $2.50 each on October 4. 


The packs are downloadable from within the game and playable in Coin Rush mode, which is unlocked after beating the World 1 castle. While normal Coin Rush challenges randomize the three stages, the add-on pack offers the same stages in the same order each time, which lets players compete against one another on an even playing field. 


Nintendo's description of the packs: 


  • Gold Rush Pack: Fun new courses that give novice players the best chance to collect lots of gold, and veterans the chance to set even higher Coin Rush records.
  • Coin Challenge Pack A: The New Super Mario Bros. 2 website will track the rankings based on the scores for this pack, enabling players to measure their scores against other tallies from around the world in these more open courses.
  • Nerve-Wrack Pack: Intense new courses designed for veteran players looking for new challenges.


According to Nintendo, more packs will be coming in the future, so be on the lookout for more content if you're still playing New Super Mario Bros. 2. What do you think about the pricing on these, and does anyone plan on downloading?
