Paid DLC in Animal Crossing would be 'unwholesome'


Animal Crossing for the 3DS will not utilize paid DLC, Nintendo boss Satoru Iwata confirmed in a recent financial Q&A. As reported by Kotaku, Iwata explained that it would be "unwholesome" to charge for additional content.

The realization "that the power of money could not only impact gameplay" has ultimately led to Nintendo ruling out paid DLC for Animal Crossing.

"That sort of element [paid DLC] is absolutely not being added," Iwata assured fans.

Iwata previously told Kotaku that “Nintendo didn't want gamers to feel ‘cheated or deceived’ by DLC, adding that the paid experience should add to the experience and not detract from it”.
