Rename page to something else

As 99.99% of us know, the content so far has all been on disc, and it doesn't even need to be downloaded making it completely wrong to call it DLC. I'm not saying we should delete the page, as it's possible that future DLC will be added, and technically the future patches adding the Japanese costumes count as DLC. My only guess for why it's called DLC is that a better alternative was not found, so everything's just called that. Any thoughts on alternate, more appropriate names?

That's pretty much why. "On-disc downloadable content" is both limiting and demeaning. In a way, the content is still downloadable – you download the flag that tells the game "ok, this weapon can be un-hidden now". It might be easier to keep it as-is. a) People who search for it will likely search for this term. b) When actual DLC comes, the page will make more sense, so no point bothering about a temporary problem. c) There's no better name. – EspyoT 08:10, 1 July 2015 (UTC)
While there may not be a better name that comes to mind immediately, that doesn't stop the fact that DLC isn't a very accurate name for it. DLC carries the connotation of only being obtained separately from the base game, which this is not. It's simply a content update. ......now that I think about it, "Content Update" sounds like a pretty good page rename. --MandL27 (talk) 21:58, 14 September 2016 (UTC)
"Content Update" sounds ok to me, but I think "Update Content" is better. Maybe we could have DLC and Downloadable Content redirect to this page because most people will not know a better name for it. I looked at the Official Splatoon Tumblr, and there dosn't seem to be an official name for this stuff, not DLC, not Update Content, so I'm fine with whatever.

Repeated Information

Why is it that there's a table that has all the existing DLC, and then a part of the page further on that discusses existing DLC? There's really not enough of a difference to warrant it being discussed two different times (in my opinion). It should be one or the other, and I prefer the non-table part of the article.

Bolding

Is there a reason why the first four sections are bolded? Otherwise it should be removed (it's annoying).

Ah yeah, I got it. Dunno why they were. :u Thanks for mentioning it! --Bzeep! talk 18:03, 21 June 2016 (UTC)

Mario Maker

Are the inkling amiibo costumes in Super Mario Maker considered DLC? And what about that stuff in miitomo? Should we add a section for those? Skylar.png Skylar Talk Contribs 00:48, 14 September 2016 (UTC)
