Pikmin 3 DLC announced

First free update goes live today, further paid packs inbound.

Pikmin 3 is getting paid DLC, with the first pack hitting the Wii U's eShop today. An update introduces a new and free map, with a 'Collect Treasure' stage pack that bolts three levels on to the game's Mission Mode available for 1.79.

New packs will be available in the future, with details to be announced by Nintendo.

It's not the first time Nintendo has produced DLC for its flagship titles - New Super Mario Bros. 2 on the 3DS introduced level packs, and this year a substantial Luigi-flavoured add-on was released for New Super Mario Bros. U.

Pikmin 3 released this summer, and while it kept strictly to the series' formula it's one of the best games available for the Wii U.
