    I miss the old days, when you bought a game once, you got every character, feature, level. All for the ONE single price you paid the first time.

    But if it unlocks certain unique features of the game--and that's the impression I got from Nintendo's trailer--then it's not completely optional as to those characters/features. It's basically day-one DLC in a physical medium.

    I honestly wouldn't mind more characters being added as DLC since the current roster is already quite impressive and there would be plenty of characters available to unlock. Now if the game was obviously incomplete and paid DLC was released to complete it, then Nintendo would be no better than companies that do the same thing on other consoles. I don't see any characters being added as DLC though. Maybe stages from older games that weren't included or new costumes. Being able to use the X variant of Mega Man would be pretty awesome.

    Things weren't always that simple then either. Take Ultima VII, arguably the best Ultima game. Except it wasn't one purchase where you got everything. You had to buy four boxes, by my count.

    Ultima VII: The Black Gate
    Ultima VII Expansion: The Forge of Virtue
    Ultima VII Part II: The Serpent Isle
    Ultima VII Part II Expansion: The Silver Seed
