Mario Golf: World Tour brings the links to the 3DS in under two weeks, and Nintendo has announced it will feature a season pass that bundles together the games three add-ons. The add-ons will be three packs that feature six, 18 hole golf courses, for a total of 108 extra holes. For context, the game itself features 10 courses, for a total of 126 holes. Each of the packs will include one extra character and two courses.
Starting on May 2nd (the game’s release date), the season pass will have the first DLC pack, called The Mushroom pack. It will include the playable Toadette character. Later that month, the Flower Pack will launch, which will include Peach as a playable character. In June, the final pack, the Star Pack will feature Rosalina as a playable golfer. Each pack by itself will cost $5.99, though players will have the opportunity to try the packs before they buy with Trial Tournaments.
The season pass will cost $14.99, giving players $3 off the on the courses. Those who buy the season pass also will receive a bonus playable character: Gold Mario. It will be available through the Nintendo E-Shop on May 2nd. What do you think of this move by Nintendo? Let me know in the comments below!
