Nintendo has decided to drop the price for three of their arguably most popular games available: New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Wii Sports Resort, and Super Mario Galaxy 2. The new suggested retail price for this trio is $29.99. Set aside the fact that these products probably should have been available at that price a year ago, it’s nice to see Mario Galaxy 2 getting at least one final push before the Wii officially decipitates.
Super Mario Galaxy 2 is tied with Super Mario Galaxy as one of the best-reviewed games of all time, with a Metacritic score of 97. To date the game has sold more than 2.7 million in the United States alone. New Super Mario Bros. Wii has sold more than 9.4 million in the U.S. and Wii Sports Resort, the follow-up to the game that introduced motion controls to the world of gaming, has U.S. sales of nearly 7 million.
Of course, the Wii U does run all Wii games. So if you own a Wii U but not a Wii, fear not! These three games are available now.
