All Animal Crossing New Leaf DLC is Free!

Well, this will be good news for anyone who hates how much game developers charge for downloadable content, since Satoru Iwata has said that all downloadable content for Animal Crossing New Leaf will completely free!

Indeed, he even goes far enough to say charging for it would be ‘unwholesome’.  Here’s the original quote:

That sort of element [paid DLC] is absolutely not being added,” before stating that such monetisation would have an impact on gameplay, even going as far as to call it calling it “unwholesome.

Well, it looks like Nintendo’s promise of not ripping off their users with downloadable content is turning out to be true, first with the free Professor Layton puzzles and now this.  Maybe Capcom should start taking notes from them?
