I feel like Nintendo have really maxed out this current incarnation of 2d mario at this point. Besides online co-op I can't think of anything that would make the games more appealing beyond what NSMB2 and NSMB U offer. Next step should be a shake up.

You play as Bowser setting up levels full of monsters and traps to try to beat AI controlled Mario, Luigi, and B/Y Toads

Well, if they stick to their claims, there will not be any more NSMB for years, if ever. (The one-game-per-platform strategy.)

If they make another 2D game with Mario in it in the meantime, I would guess it'll be something new.

See, I told you guys the Classics pack wouldn't be the last one.

Challenge Pack C is a day-one buy.

They have said NSMB is a once-a-generation thing, so unless they're really struggling, I imagine the next 2D platformers will be of Kirby and Donkey Kong variety.

I agree. I see one of two options:

1.) Super Mario Bros. 2 USA throwback game, borrowing gameplay mechanics, visual style, and theme from that game, possibly mixed in with some "classic" Mario themes and ideas, to provide a totally new experience. The co-op would be really fun, with each character controlling and playing slightly differently.

2.) New Super Mario Bros. "Reboot" game, with a bunch of totally new ideas. The thing that instantly comes to my mind, in this case, is keeping the Super Mushroom and the Starman, and ditching every other power-up from previous games, in favor of a bunch of new, unique power-ups that offer abilities that radically change the way you play the games.

New Super Mario Bros. U: Yoshi's Land.

It'll be 'Is SMW2:YI a Mario game?' all over again but worse, because you know, it's NSMB.

I assume they have some Mario level design tool...where all the assets are already on the cartridge and they just re-position them to create new DLC levels. Takes up hardly any space at all.

It was a joke - maybe not here, but plenty of people complain each time a new pack is released at the low size of the download.

GAH I thought the Classic Pack was it, so I replayed the gold mushroom pack a bunch and got up to a million coins finally. BUT NOW THIS! I no longer have a coin goal to work towards, so there is very little motivation to actually play them.

I shoulda known though, there was no way there was gonna be an A pack and B pack with no C pack. CRAP!

Can't have all of the courses except for these though, can I??? CONSUMER WHORE ALERT

So you have to at least play the first 3 packs or unlock the first 3 packs before getting DLC access?

Just need to have Coin Rush unlocked. The store just requires having Spotpass enabled on the 3DS and the game, which could take an hour or two after that to receive the update through there.

I've got it unlocked, spotpass was enabled on my 3DS, and i've had the game since launch...still no option for DLC.

EDIT: What the...it just updated for the shop. That is just strange...
