Nintendo has announced that August is to be dubbed the Month of Mario, as a new Mario title will be made available at a discount every week in the Nintendo eShop. This comes as New Super Mario Bros. 2 is to be released this weekend (the 28th) in Japan. Unfortunately the game wont make it to the western world until August 17th.
Each classic Mario game will enjoy a one-week run at a discounted price.
The games, prices and dates of each discount are as follows:
July 26 – Aug. 1 – Super Mario Bros. – $3.99
Aug. 2 – Aug. 8 – Super Mario Land – $2.99
Aug. 9 – Aug. 15 – Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins – $2.99
Aug. 16 – Aug. 22 – Mario’s Picross – $2.99
Obviously these are prices for the US, but hopefully Europe will be able to take advantage of the sales too.
