Nintendo Announces August as “Mario Month”

Super Mario
Nintendo really wants you to think that this coming August is “Mario Month.” Just how bad do they want you to celebrate it?

Well, New Super Mario Bros. 2 is getting a release within the month and during the four weeks following its release, one Mario game will be made available at a discounted price in Nintendo’s digital store — eShop.

Here’s what you can expect — though, keep in mind, each game’s discount only runs for a week. So grab it while it’s hot.

  • 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

New Super Mario Bros. 2 is set for release in mid-August for the Nintendo 3DS.
