    This is from the mini Nintendo Direct. These levels are from SMB1 & 3 and are temporarily free between now and 31st Jan 2013, after that you would need to pay.

    Skip to 3:50 to see the classic levels.



    Very pleased with what Nintendo are doing in terms of DLC with this game and offering them for free is great!

    An electronics chain closed down here and sold stuff for half the price including new games, got a great deal and bought it. The nice thing about this is that the game's price used is more than what I paid for here. :yay:
    Now with some new content I'd say I'm lucky that I haven't sold it yet.

    That looks really cool. I will be curious to see what they did with all of the secrets (like the white block thing from SMB 3).

    That's pretty cool. At least it's free at one point. More DLC should at least be free at certain points. Like at beginning or/and when the dlc is really old.

    I prefer it to be free altogether tho. :P

    Look at the Flag...
    I guess they are adding those levels right now, can't access eshop.

    But very nice to get some free extra levels.

    I'll just download them and keep them on the SD if I happen to buy NSMB2 :3

    Looks nice. How many of the levels from 1 & 3 are included? (Maybe it says in the video, didn't watch it all)

    Just an FYI, you don't download the NSMB2 level packs through the eShop, but through the game itself.

    I grabbed these DLC levels and they were actually a lot of fun, all sorts of nostalgic surprises are tucked away and it's pretty easy to reach 30k coins.

    And where the fuck is my New Super Mario Land? I loved the world and gameplay of the series.

    3D Land doesn't count seeing it was just regular Mario Bros but in 3D.

    You'll need to look at the video to see how to get them.

    You can only access the DLC through the actual game

    These are so mine, I'm so glad I downloaded this game now, and it's so awesome what Nintendo is doing with DLC lately.

    Too bad the rest of the game is garbage. Hoping they'll do DLC like this for NSMB U, though.

    I didn't expect the DLC to come so fast here in the states.

    I was excited til I hard three horrible words, coin rush mode. Fuck coin rush mode. i will never buy a coin rush pack. Why can't they add new level packs for story mode? I'm guessing they knew no body smart would spend a dime on this either and that's why it is free.

    Shame it's Coin Rush. I guess these can't be played as normal levels? I really dislike against-the-clock style platforming.
