I told you Animal Crossing: New Leaf would be announced during this Nintendo Direct!

Today was one of the first Nintendo Directs where DLC was also a pretty big thing. One of the bggest announcements was New Super Luigi U, a DLC content pack that will be available for New Super Mario Bros. U. It will add alternate versions of the game’s 80 stages. I think the Luigi name was added ust to make it sound cool. Free Style Savvy: Trend Setters DLC is also coming, with Animal Crossing inspired Gracie Grace clothes and real world Liz Lisa clothing. Fire Emblem: Awakening also has more DLC immediately available, as the final Champions of Yore map is out and the Golden Gaffe gold-grind map has been released. Each are $2.50. Also, NInja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge will receive free costume DLC and 25 Ninja Trials before February 2013 ends.
