To celebrate the impending release of New Super Mario Bros. 2 for 3DS, Nintendo is declaring the "Month of Mario" and putting a number of Mario games on sale through August. Well, the first sale begins tomorrow, so kind of before August.
Each game will be discounted for an entire week (seven days) on the Nintendo eShop, and the sale ends a few days after New Super Mario Bros. 2 arrives. We imagine this is to ensure the last game still gets a full week's discount. Here's the list with dates:
- July 26 - August 1: Super Mario Bros.
- August 2-8: Super Mario Land
- August 9-15: Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins
- August 13-22: Mario's Picross
As for prices, Super Mario Bros. will be marked down to $3.99, while the rest will be $2.99 during their respective dates. New Super Mario Bros. 2 will be out for 3DS on August 19.
