New Super Mario Bros. 2 will feature paid downloadable content after its August 19 release, as will Fire Emblem: Awakening, which is now set for 2013. Nintendo announced the news last night in a 3DS-centric Nintendo Direct broadcast online.

If you want extra Coin Rush stages, you'll need to invest some coins of your own.

New Super Mario Bros. 2's Coin Rush mode, a competitive race to collect as many coins as possible in randomly selected levels, can be expanded for a price with additional stages after the game's release. Reggie Fils-Aime, president of Nintendo of America, emphasized that the DLC does not mean a reduction in content or quality of the base product.

"Make no mistake, out of the box this is a full-featured Mario game as full-featured as we've ever made," Fils-Aime said.

New Super Mario Bros. 2 will be available both in retail and on the 3DS eShop on the day of its release.
