Nintendo has revealed that four Mario titles will be discounted on the 3DS eShop over the next month in celebration of the upcoming launch of New Super Mario Bros. 2. The ‘Month of Mario’ begins today, July 26th, and sees a new Mario game being offered at a discounted rate each week leading up to NSMB2’s release on August 19th in North America.

Here are the dates, titles and prices related to this special offer:

  • July 26 to August 1 – Super Mario Bros. ($3.99)

These discounts currently only apply to the US 3DS eShop but we’ll keep you updated if Nintendo announces a similar scheme for Europe.

New Super Mario Bros. 2 will be released for 3DS on August 17th in PAL territories and on August 19th in the US – the same day the 3DS XL is released over there.
