Nintendo kicks off the "Month of Mario" with discounts on classic 3DS eShop Mario games



Nintendo has officially declared the next month as the "Month of Mario" to celebrate the upcoming release of the newest Super Mario Bros. title, New Super Mario Bros. 2 for the Nintendo 3DS, on August 19th.

As part of the event, 3DS users can pick up 4 classic Mario titles at a discount from the eShop beginning later this week with the original Super Mario Bros for $3.99. There will be a new Mario game deal each following week.

Read on for the details.

Nintendo has declared the four weeks preceding the Aug. 19 launch of New Super Mario Bros. 2 as the Month of Mario. To celebrate the launch of this new game, which is playable on the Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 3DS XL, Nintendo is making one Mario game per week available at a discount in the Nintendo eShop. Fans who can’t wait to get their thumbs on New Super Mario Bros. 2 will have four classic Mario adventures to enjoy before launch day.

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:

Date Game Discount Price
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 an original side-scrolling Mario game for Nintendo 3DS with an emphasis on coin collection. Each level is littered with gold as coins rain down from overhead pipes, trails of coins are left behind special gold enemies and pipes transport Mario into coin-filled caverns. It’s up to players to collect as many coins as possible throughout their adventure. The game features the return of the fan-favorite Raccoon Mario, and the entire game can be played cooperatively with a friend via a local wireless connection (two Nintendo 3DS systems and game cards required). Consumers can purchase the game on Aug. 19 through major retailers nationwide, or as a download from the Nintendo eShop. The Nintendo 3DS XL hand-held system also launches on Aug. 19.
