DLC Playable Characters and Courses Announced for Mario Golf

Looks like DLC for Mario Golf: World Tour is really happening as Nintendo announced that playable characters and new courses can be purchased shortly after the game is released. The DLC packs will include six new courses, as well as the addition of Toadette, Nabbit, Rosalina, and Gold Mario as playable characters. Check out the full press release below!

 


 

Nintendo is offering players the opportunity to nearly double the amount of content they can play in the Mario Golf: World Tour game, which launches May 2 for the portable Nintendo 3DS system. With 10 courses and 126 holes (an amount equivalent to previous games in the franchise), extensive multiplayer modes as well as regional and worldwide tournaments, the main game offers plenty of content for golf fans already. But players who can’t get enough golf and want to expand their experiences can purchase up to a total of 108 new downloadable holes and additional Mushroom Kingdom golfers. The DLC opens up further challenging courses for players to enjoy as they test their skills (broadband Internet access is required).

“We’re letting fans expand their experience with Mario Golf: World Tour,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “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.”

The downloadable content for the game will be released in three separate packs: the Mushroom Pack launching on May 2, the Flower Pack launching later in May and the Star Pack launching in June. Each pack includes two new 18-hole courses and a new playable character. Players will receive Toadette with the Mushroom Pack, Nabbit with the Flower Pack and Rosalina with the Star Pack.

Each pack will be available for $5.99 from Toad’s Booth, which can be found in the main menu of the game. Mario Golf: World Tour owners who know they want to buy all three add-on packs can buy a Season Pass at a discounted rate of $14.99 starting May 2. Season Pass holders will get access to each new pack as it becomes available, and will receive a special bonus of Gold Mario as a playable character at the time of purchase. Gold Mario has a special Golden Flower shot that gains coins for every yard it travels. For those who purchase all three packs individually, Gold Mario will also be available once all packs have been released. Nintendo will also offer Trial Tournaments for consumers interested in trying out a sample of the downloadable courses before deciding to purchase. Consumers who own the game and download the Trial Pack will be able to participate in these online tournaments.

This is a great Idea I like DLC as long as its worth the money a lot of you will be happy to see rosalina and toadette also Nabbit is an epic choice and kinda like the different versions of mario as long as there only one per game pulse Gold mario is Just a bonus If you perches the season pass so Its better to have that extra than none at all so there’s no reason to to get angry about him unless you hate mario so well done Camalot youve made me wont the game even more now… Read more »

Even after I read his comment, I still don’t think he has much use. I don’t like to brag, but I’m a master at mario sports games so even without gold mario I would still get a lot of coins.

I really hope that they have more DLC things so they can have more characters like Dry Bones, Petey Piranha, and King Boo

Rosalina – Expected
Toadette – Expected
Gold Mario – I knew it would happen eventually.
Nabbit, however, is a total shocker. I guess Nintendo listens to fans after all. 🙂

Gold Mario’s pose looks exactly like Metal Mario, but there are two differences:
1. Gold Mario has pupils
2. Well, he’s gold obviously.

Even more footage! I love how Rosalina retains her original appearance and isn’t forced into a generic sports outfit. They’ve really outdone themselves to capture her personality. 😀

And the Galaxy course looks amazing!

I like it too. They didn’t just out her in a generic sports outfit the same as Peach and Daisy of a different color. That makes them seem like pallet swaps and shows Rosalina isn’t just a blue Peach

I agree completely.

The way he’s acting, I’d say he’s upset because she ISN’T blue Peach (yes, I’ve seen people hate Rosalina that much…), because there’s absolutely nothing wrong with your comment, and there’s no reason for him to be this upset about a trivial matter.

Just on the topic of Peach/Daisy reverting to normal outfits, iirc they both transform when they get a birdie (idk about better than birdie)
Also wow over the relentless questions.

Yes it would be forced. If Rosalina wore a sports outfit I’d guarantee she’d be wearing the same one as Peach and Daisy; hence, to some could be seen as princess #3, rather than Rosalina. I’m not saying that Peach and Daisy shouldn’t, especially because Peach really suits the dress she’s wearing. For all of these unique animations, she would look horrible if she wore the same thing outfit as Peach and Daisy (and underwear shots would be unbelievably easy :p). It also bothers me how Daisy is also wearing the same thing as Peach because the sports outfit she… Read more »

It’s unique they went with her normal attire. Perhaps all 3 have their original & sports wear? Or maybe Nintendo just thought Rosalina wouldn’t look as good in shorts or something. Esp. since Rosalina floats and they wanted the effect to be more prominent.

From what I gather the dlc courses are re-designed versions of n64 courses, or at least some of them are. Toad Highlands, Koopa Park, & Mario’s Star I remember being in Mario Golf 64.

So if Toadette and Rosaline are in Mario Kart 8, maybe Nabbit, Birdo and Diddy Kong will be? (Could be said for Boo etc too I guess I just hope it’s those three)
