Mario Golf: World Tour players will be able to expand their experience with six new 18-hole courses, Nintendo has announced.

The new content will be released in three separate packs, beginning on May 2 with the Mushroom Pack, then the Flower Pack later in May, and finally the Star Pack in June. Each pack includes two 18-hole courses and a new character.

Toadette comes with the Mushroom Pack, Nabbit with the Flower Pack and Rosalina with the Star Pack.

Each pack is priced £5.39, or you can buy a Three-Pack Set (season pass) at the discounted rate of £10.79. Opt for the three pack and you'll also receive a special bonus of Gold Mario as a playable character at the time of purchase. Gold Mario has a special Golden Flower shot that gains coins for every yard it travels.

For those who purchase the packs individually, Gold Mario will also be available once all packs have been released.

Furthermore, Nintendo will offer Trial Tournaments for those interested in trying out a sample of the downloadable courses before deciding to purchase. Players who own the game and download the Trial Pack will be able to participate in these online tournaments.

Mario Golf: World Tour launches for 3DS on May 2.
