Nintendo has confirmed that it’s upcoming game, Animal Crossing 3DS will allow players access to DLC free of charge.
At a Q&A event, Nintendo President Satoru Iwata has confirmed that whilst it would be “unbelievably profitable to provide paid add-on content for Animal Crossing: New Leaf”, the developers of the game wished it so that the game wouldn’t have paid DLC.
“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.”
However, this isn’t available for all Nintendo games, New Super Mario Bros. 2 has paid DLC in the form extra Coin Rush levels available for fans provided that they pay for it. As for the release of Animal Crossing 3DS, we’ll let you know when a release date for Europe and North America is revealed.
