It's still a standalone retail game, meaning that they expect a certain degree of sales, so I'd say it probably depends on the promotion they give it.
If the game sold 100k at launch, I would be surprised the DLC - even as a standalone - would sell the 1/3 or the launch sales of the game.

Sorry I should have worded it better but I meant will I be able to understand the plot without having played the main game. :p
Yeah. Its a back story to what happens in the main game. That back story is largely self contained though, the main game lays out the shell but doesn't shed much light. This adds a ton of context. It is basically its own thing.

Any word on if it integrates into the main story if it's DLC, or is another mode selected from the menu? Curious to see how they handle that, or if it unlocks based on story progression.

Ah, so it's a separate download even as part of the season pass? Physical would be separate obviously, I just figured it would be accessible through the main game if it was DLC.
Possibly. We don't know for sure yet. It will obviously need to check for the full game before launching though. But all signs point to it being a whole new game essentially.

And some random era member thinks he knows the stock market better than investors? LOL
is there a qualification for Nintendo "investors"? These who sold are just shareholders who bought Nintendo stocks at one point. The random ERA member could be an investor too.

How many of those games are system sellers?
By the way he worded it, it sounds like all of them are!

I mean it might have already sold 50k. I doubt we are ever going to get those numbers. The retail release is icing on the cake. And I'd say if it sells over 10k it probably more than pays for the trouble of printing a game that is already done.

I expect it to be like New Super Luigi U, where the stand-alone game is accessible from the main menu. Though I guess that depends on whether the digital season pass works like the retail one (aka: story DLC playable separately, without the main game), since you can purchase DLC without owning the base game.
