I have had the new NSMB2 DLC for a lit­tle while now and they did a great job cre­at­ing clas­sic lev­els from Mario’s past. They are only avail­able to be down­loaded through the games DLC shop, not the Eshop. There is some excit­ing stuff on the hori­zon for Nintendo’s con­soles and I per­son­ally am excited to get my hands on a new Fire Emblem just in time for Valen­tines Day. There were no BIG sur­prises but some release dates and win­dows were tied down today, see any­thing that inter­est you?
