Wii U, 3DS to get paid DLC

Nintendo is getting ready to hop on the DLC chu-chu.

While chatting with investors in a recent Q&A, company CEO Satoru Iwata acknowledged that the company is indeed working on a digital content delivery system for both Wii U and the 3DS.

With many PS3/360 games expected to appear on the former, it only makes sense developers would want their post-launch content on the system as well, no?

3DS developers come first, however; they’ll get access to the system by the end of the year.

Next to confirming this bit of news, Iwata also commented on the quality of the add-on content that players can expect. While extending a game’s lifecycle by releasing new stages for example, we won’t be seeing lesser quality items like paid stat increases. At least not from Nintendo itself.

And don’t expect free-to-play games to pop up on Nintendo’s consoles either. Games like that would damage the premium value of the company’s offerings, Iwata feels.
