"It's been confirmed by Nintendo UK today that New Super Mario Bros. 2 will cost £39.99 (€50.88) to download when it hits the eShop later this week.

As Nintendo's first foray into selling full retail games via its eShop, it's understandable that they have opted to stick to the recommended retail price (RRP) to test the waters. But when Amazon UK will ship the boxed copy for only £29.97, are you happy spending an extra £10 for the convenience of not swapping game carts?

On Friday you will also be able to download the more modestly priced Freakyforms Deluxe: Your Creations, Alive! for £24.99 and New Art Academy for £29.99 from the eShop."

Luckily I've ordered mine from Amazon! Blimey, 10 quid extra to download?! What are Nintendo thinking?! Same for Art Academy as well!

Wait, aren't your normal games 39.99 Pound/Euro/Whateva?

If you don't want to get digital, then get the physical copy. You're getting a nice package and the same game for less money instead of just a download. I don't understand all the bitching about the price. No one's putting a gun to your head.

I agree it should be cheaper, then... but 5$ more? That's not too much.

Sorry, but it is. I can't trade the game in like a physical copy. There's already some downpoints to it.. plus it's 5 pounds, so 8 dollars! :P

Ah Nintendo you and your inability to understand how to work anything that requires online is so cute.



Former something....

Only Creations of the devil trade in games, anyway. You'll be finnneeeee!! Nintendo totally knows what they are doing with this!

Prediction that UK digital sales of NSMB2 will be under 500, right here.
