Animal Crossing New Leaf will not have paid DLC
That'd be too unwholesome.
With the huge role purely cosmetic differences play in furniture-hoarding sim Animal Cross, you might think paid DLC would be a given. That's not the case, says Nintendo president Satoru Iwata.
In a recent financial Q&A, Iwata stated that paid DLC in Animal Crossing would make the experience feel "unwholesome," further cementing his previously-stated view that DLC should feel like something substantial is being added to a game, and that he wishes to avoid the type of DLC that makes people feel "cheated or deceived."
Animal Crossing has had DLC since the second entry in the series, but this is the first time the infrastructure has been in place to make paid DLC convenient. You can probably expect to see some free DLC in the new 3DS -entry, but there will be no nickel-and-diming.
