New Super Mario Bros. 2 costs more digitally than at retail

Posted on August 13, 2012 - 3:05pm by Sean Hinz

While I can't blame Nintendo for trying new things, you'd think they would learn from others mistakes... With the release of New Super Mario Bros. 2 coming to 3DS, it seems like a no brainer to release the digital version alongside the retail version. Now releasing the digital version for £10 more in the UK on the other hand seems like a fairly dumb idea.

So you've got retailers like GAME selling their version for £29.99, but if you buy it directly from the eShop it's £39.99. Who thought this was a good idea again? Other games like New Art Academy and Freakyforms are also falling into the same trap and frankly this is terrible for the digital storefront Nintendo so desperately wants to become respected. Hopefully they will learn from their own mistakes, otherwise repeat behavior like this spells certain doom.
