Nintendo has declared August the ‘Month of Mario’ in honor of the plumber’s upcoming second 3DS adventure. Basically, that shakes out to one Mario eShop title on sale, each week, for the four weeks leading up to release day.
Since New Super Mario Bros 2 is all about the gold coins anyway, it kind of makes sense that Nintendo would want to save you a few coins on Mario’s Virtual Console games for the portable.
Now here’s the important part- each sale is only good for one week. The first special starts tomorrow and runs through the first of August, for instance. If you missed any of these classics (or Mario’s Picross), now’s the time to buy.
July 26th – August 1st
- Super Mario Bros – $3.99
- Super Mario Land – $2.99
- Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins – $2.99
- Mario’s Picross – $2.99
