New Super Mario Bros. 2 DLC expands with classic Super Mario Bros. levels remade (update)

Nintendo has released a set of classic, NES era-inspired courses for the coin-drenched New Super Mario Bros. 2 in Japan, according to a newly released edition of Nintendo Direct. The "Golden Classic Course Pack," now available in Japan, adds new courses based on levels from Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. and Super Mario Bros. 3.

New Super Mario Bros. 2's latest downloadable add-on features rearranged, coin-stuffed versions of levels 1-1 and 1-2 from Super Mario Bros. for the NES, as well as one of Bowser's castle levels. Versions of Super Mario Bros. 3 levels 1-1 and 1-5 are also featured, as is a course based on the original Mario Bros.

The DLC is currently being offered for free to Nintendo 3DS owners in Japan. Nintendo will begin charging 200 yen for the "Golden Classic Course Pack," the sixth add-on for New Super Mario Bros. 2, in February.

Nintendo president Satoru Iwata offers a preview of New Super Mario Bros. 2's latest DLC in the video below.

Update: Nintendo has confirmed that the DLC is now available in the West as the "Gold Classics Pack." It will remain free until Feb. 1, 2013, when Nintendo will begin charging American players $2.50 for the content.
