Mario Golf: World Tour is getting downloadable content with a Season Pass, Nintendo announced this morning. The base game will contain 10 courses with 126 holes, but if you want more, you’ll be able to purchase an additional 108 holes as well as new Golfers.
DLC for Mario Golf: World Tour will be released in three separate packs—the Mushroom Pack launching on May 2nd, the Flower Pack launching later in May and the Star Pack launching in June. Each pack will contain two new courses with 18 holes each and a new playable character.
The Mushroom Pack will come with Toadette, the Flower Pack with Nabbit and the Star Pack with Rosalina. Each pack will cost $5.99, but if you want to buy them all, you can grab a Season Pass at a discounted rate of $14.99, starting May 2nd.
Season Pass holders will get access to each pack as it is made available. Additionally, they’ll also get a Gold Mario playable character as a special bonus at the time of purchase. Gold Mario has a special “Golden Flower shot” that gains coins for every yard it travels. If you eventually buy all three DLC packs separately, you’ll get Gold Mario once all three packs have been released.
Additionally, Nintendo say they will offer “trial tournaments” for consumers that are interesting in sampling these DLC courses before deciding to buy them. In order to access these, you’ll need to own the game and download the Trial Pack.
