MK8 proved to me that they know how to handle DLC 11bucks for 16 courses 8 Characters and 8 Karts is an amazing deal. Meanwhile we pay 15 bucks for 4 Maps and we still have to pay for additional characters for ghosts.

Holy thumbnail change.

"And one thing Nintendo has determined as a company policy, what we are not going to do is create a full game and then say, ‘let’s hold this back for DLC.’ That’s not our plan."

I am truly glad that this is Nintendo's stance on DLC, but I also think that DLC is a good chance to add multiplayer in singleplayer games long after their release.
If I've learned anything from Pokemon Rader, is that Nintendo has the potential to link applications to a game's saved data to give new experiences. If possible (probably not), Nintendo can sell multiplayer modes/applications on the E-Shop for Wii U and 3DS games that fans wanted to have multiplayer.

Fire Emblem Awakening's DLC was good, but I felt they should have made a two to four player DLC app for it (There comes a point in time were NPCs just aren't challenging enough). Didn't Shadow Dragon have multiplayer or something? 7_7

Yeah, I wanted to match the "shots fired" reference towards the like of EA, etc, etc lol

Should've been in the game to begin with.

Nintendo's no DLC policy was one of the things I liked most about them. Now they're getting on the gravy train like everyone else, charging money for Deliberately Left-out Content.
