eShop Discounts  for Mario Games This August on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

Nintendo of America are celebrating the release of New Super Mario Bros. 2 next month by reducing the prices of various eShop downloads.

  • Super Mario Bros - NES (July 26 - Aug. 1) - $3.99
  • Super Mario Land - GameBoy (Aug. 2 - Aug. 8) - $2.99

  • Mario's Picross - GameBoy (Aug. 16 - Aug. 22) - $2.99
The 3DS title then hits retail from August 19.

What Nintendo should do is throw as many past games as possible onto the e-shop and then sell them in bundles like steam sales. They'd get my money and I have an aversion toward download titles.

Edit: Aversion from download titles. "aversion toward" is an oxymoron. See? I kinda know my own native tongue. Thank you 3 years of higher education! Smilie

Discounts on Nintendo's virtual store, FINALLY.

Of course I still won't be buying any... I have most of the games on cartridge and I don't plan on replaying them anyway.

The sales are marginal as well, like £1 off. Not the 50% sales I'm used to on XBL.

Add me on anything. I'm always looking for new friends/opponents/town visitors/chances to appear more popular than I actually am.
