eShop Mario sale celebrates NSMB2 launch

The mascot's old game going cheap on 3DS

Nintendo of America will host a sale on the US 3DS eShop, flogging classic Mario games on the cheap to mark the launch of New Super Mario Bros. 2.

The new game lands Stateside on August 19 (a fair bit after the UK's July 28 launch) and in the weeks leading up to that date Nintendo will make one classic Mario title available at a reduced price.

First up is the original Super Mario Bros., which'll cost $3.99 from July 26 to August 1. Between August 2-8 Game Boy classic Super Mario Land will go down to $2.99, as will Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins the week after. Mario's Picross finishes the sale on August 16-22 with its $2.99 price.

CVGs review is around the corner, but Japanese gaming mag Famitsu has already published its New Super Mario Bros. 2 review, and Nintendo's latest platformer has been given a big thumbs-up.
