As Nintendo makes great strides to become a more modern company, they'll have to watch out for a handful of key pitfalls that come along with modernization.
I'm confident they won't do pay to win, on the DLC side I just hope they do worthwhile DLC, to date what they've offered has been crap and not worth it in any way.
I agree, for the most part. The issue is that the temptation will be there, especially given their partnership with DeNA - who know how to do F2P with maximum financial success. Look at how Nintendo have handled amiibo - recently restraint hasn't been their strong suit.
...the FREE mercedes DLC? Yeah, mixed.
Three characters, new vehicles, and eight tracks at $7,50 is crap? Man, what are you expect'em to sell as DLC?
I state in the article that the reaction was mixed to the Mario Kart DLC - mostly due to the Mercedes DLC - as is linked. I do appreciate your passion for the subject though.
As free as it was, it still borders on the absurd. People don't want to see, or aren't accustomed to seeing that sort of blatant advertising in a Nintendo game.
