Animal Crossing: New Leaf Will Not Have Paid DLC

Category: Uncategorized

Nintendo is still figuring out how they want to go about adding DLC to select titles. In a Q&A after last week’s financial briefing, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata explained that not all games would benefit from requiring users to pay for new content.

“However, we do not intend to make downloadable or add-on content available for every type of game. We would like to supply consumers with only add-on or downloadable content which they are happy to pay for as compensation for creative work. For example, some might say that it would be unbelievably profitable to provide paid add-on content for “Animal Crossing: New Leaf,” but we were concerned that a game in which you enjoy yourself more by the power of money would not be suitable, and we decided to avoid such a feature after an intensive discussion with the development team. On the other hand, we are selling sets of new courses for “New Super Mario Bros. 2″ by download and obtaining a very good response from those who have actually bought and played them. We see vast potential in this sort of add-on content. In short, we would like to find the type of add-on content consumers will find enjoyable in each game. We intend to basically create add-on content with which we will be able to make long-term relationships with our consumers.”
