There is one NSMB per console

Since it was released to people who never bought NSMBU, it's hardly just DLC. Nintendo just used the excuse that it's technically an extension of an existing game so that they could pull another shameless cash-grab move.


No it really isn't hardly DLC, it is DLC.


I'd say it's more comparable to an expansion pack.

Fantastic argument you have here. Just brilliant.


There should be no need for argument. NSLBU was first released as a digital DLC, then it got a retail release, this isn't the first time DLC has had some retail release though it's generally on a GOTY edition. Hell GTA IV has the same kind of DLC that has a retail release, sure Stories of LC was a Two disc thing, but the second disc contained the DLC for GTA IV

Except the base game isn't required for operation.

There have been cases where you don't need the base game for expansions though. Hell the Xbox Edition of Doom 3 did just that with it's expansion pack.

Whatever you want to call it, it goes against what Nintendo promised about the NSMB series. The game has a different title than NSMBU and can be bought separately, so it only makes sense to consider it a second NSMB installment for the Wii U.

More villains need to be protagonists. BIS proves it can work.
Ridley, Ganondorf, Fawful, Bowser, and Dimentio all for their own games!

No. It's just DLC.

The only reason Nintendo released it for retail was so people wouldn't have to be forced to buy NSMBU to buy NSLU.

The rule still stands.

Except it doesn't, the game was created as DLC, for it to have go against that promise would mean we got a game that was 100% different (as different as NSMB goes anyhow)

This DLC does not do that at all, it make little changes sure but not large enough changes that makes it an entirely new game.
