New Super Mario Bros. 2 will receive six classic Mario courses as free DLC, Nintendo has announced.

The offer has thus far only been confirmed for Japan. We've asked Nintendo about European plans and will update when we hear back.

The six levels will come re-made in the Golden Classic Course Pack. The news was announced overnight by company president Satoru Iwata in a new Nintendo Direct presentation (thanks, VG247).

The pack contains:

* Round 1 from Mario Bros.
* 1-1, 1-2 and 1-4 from Super Mario Bros.
* 1-1 and 1-5 from Super Mario Bros. 3

The pack is available today in Japan and will be free until 31st January 2013. After that it'll cost 200 Yen (about 1.50).

It's the third map pack for the game - the first Mario title ever to feature DLC. Watch the levels in action below.

They could have picked some better stages... Oh well, hope it comes stateside! I wouldn't mind spending a few dollars for that anyway. I still need to pick up the first two packs.

Round 1 from Mario Bros. Arcade game? That could an interesting coin rush level.
