Month of Mario Celebrated via eShop Discounts on Classic Mario Games

In anticipation of the August 19 launch of New Super Mario Bros. 2 on the Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo is proclaiming August as the Month of Mario, and each week preceding the New Super Mario Bros. 2 release, the 3DS eShop will be offering classic Mario games in hugely discounted prices, starting with the original Super Mario Bros.

The full line up of dates, titles, and prices:

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

It’s a good thing all the eShop games were offered at steep discounted prices, leaving you with enough money for New Super Mario Bros 2. which promises a wealth of improvements over the previous game, as well as the return of classic Mario items such as the super leaf from SMB 3, along with the super duper awesome Mega Mushroom, which was sadly taken out of New Super Mario Bros. Wii – a shame, it would have ruled to see Giant Mario on a big screen.
