Price Cuts for New Super Mario Bros. Wii and Super Mario Galaxy 2

Missed out on two of Wii’s best selling Mario titles? Nintendo announced early this morning that both New Super Mario Bros. Wii and Super Mario Galaxy 2 will be getting price drops for the first time since the games were released in 2009 and 2010 respectively. Both games, as well as Wii Sports Resort, will now be sold at a suggested retail price of $29.99. You can read the full press release below.

Three of the best-selling and best-reviewed Wii games of all time are now available at a new low price. Starting today, Super Mario Galaxy 2, New Super Mario Bros. Wii and Wii Sports Resort are available at a suggested retail price of just $29.99 each.

The new price represents one of the many steps Nintendo is taking to provide shoppers with the best value and variety across all its systems through the end of 2013. The games can also be played on the Wii U home console, which can play the entire library of Wii games.

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.

Nice! I still need to pick up SMG2. Has been on my “to-buy” list for a while but didn’t want to spend $50 on it.

I wish I could have paid $50, they’re about $89 in Australia right now.
I wonder if the drop will be worldwide…

What a ripoff. Now if it was $20, I could deal, but $30? That’s a ripoff.

I’d have to agree. Why couldn’t these two be Nintendo Selects like others(for 20$)?

I still need to pick up NSMB Wii, so it’s nice to know that the price has dropped. I can’t spend 60 bucks for a game that was released 3 or 4 years ago…
