Mario eShop Sale Leads into New Super Mario Bros 2 Release

Mario is going on sale to celebrate himself. New Super Mario Bros. 2 is coming to the 3DS on August 19th and Nintendo is discounting a handful of his eShop games. The sales are staggered up through the release of NSMB2, but the collection features some groundbreaking mobile Mario action.

New Super Mario Bros 2

Hang out and play some Mario before you play Mario.

  • First up, Super Mario Bros ($3.99 from July 26 to August 1). That’s right, the OG SMB. ‘Nuff said.
  • Then it is Game Boy time with Super Mario Land ($2.99 from August 2 to August 8). One of the quirkier Mario titles, but it’ll test your platforming skills like no other.
  • Super Mario Land 2: Six Golden Coins ($2.99 from August 9 to August 15) modernized the Mario gameplay a bit on the Game Boy. Of course, it also introduced my personal favorite Mario villain, Wario.
  • Finally, Mario’s Picross ($2.99 from August 16 to August 22). While I was hopelessly addicted to its sequels, I’ve never played the version that started it all.

Definitely an interesting mix of Mario titles. I hope your thumbs are ready because your wallet has no arguments this time.
