Nintendo's latest streaming Nintendo Direct conference brought big news for New Super Mario Bros. 2 fans in the form of details on three upcoming DLC packs. The extra content arrives in Japan on October 2, 2012 for the rough equivalent of $2.50, though there's been no word yet on plans or pricing for North America or Europe releases.
Joystiq runs through the translated titles and details for each of the Nintendo 3DS game's three packs. "Go! Go! As Gold Mario Pack" adds three Gold Mario levels to the game, with a possible 30,000 additional coins to be collected. "Challenge the Record A Pack" seems to simply allow for high scores to be posted on the game's website (though that can't be right, can it?). Finally, "Survival Panic Pack" adds a challenging selection of levels to the game.
We'll have additional details to share once Nintendo puts out an English-language press release.
