Aussie Bargain Roundup: Super Mario Maker 2

by Daniel VuckovicJune 28, 2019

We’re into the week of release – let’s figure out where to buy Super Mario Maker 2 from.

So there’s two versions of the game, the standard release, and a Limited Edition with 12 months of Nintendo Switch Online subscription. Depending on where you get it from, it could be a good saving. This subscription can be stacked so if you’re already online it’ll just add more time.

Currently, The Amazon and Big W have the same price on both the standard and limited editions.

Both EB Games and JB Hi-Fi have pre-sold out of any stylus or keyring bonuses, and the only way to get the stylus now is to pre-order the Limited Edition from the eShop and redeem one from Nintendo.

As always should you spot a deal let us know in the comments. Look for our Super Mario Maker 2 review later this week.

    Maybe it’d be worth including the boosted level of MyNintendo Gold Points the digital version comes with considering that translates to real money value for future eShop purchases. Part of the incentive for me, anyway.

    I’ll probably stick with JB this time around as I really want that stylus and I’m not willing to pay an extra $11 for a notebook I’ll never use. It wouldn’t be particularly practical for this sort of software anyway considering the trial and error nature of level design. A notebook would have been more useful for say, the Labo games, or WarioWare: D.I.Y. Hell, why even waste paper? The 3DS had a note taking function. How hard could it be to incorporate something similar for the Switch?

    Just a heads up that your EBGames links to BigW.

    So what is the deal with the stylus now? I preordered at EB a few weeks ago to guarantee it, but they said it was first come first serve, and now only the eShop and JB are actually listing it….

    Is it still available for everyone regardless of where they purchase the game so long as they redeem the code in time? Cause if so I may move my preorder to somewhere cheaper.

    Hmmm, I like the 12 Month subscription with the limited edition. The new question is – is a stylus and a metal keyring worth the extra $9? Yes, yes it is.
    JB – You’ve done it again. Also this will be the first game on my switch where I use my touch screen!

    Best deal, assuming you have Switch online and want a second game later:
    – 10% off eShop Credit at BigW
    – $136 Game voucher, effectively becomes $121 with BigW discount
    – 675 gold coins with the voucher so it’s effectively $114 for the voucher
    – add the 160 coins you would have got for the physical copy, still $116 for the voucher

    effectively $58 for Mario Maker 2 and also $58 for some other game later this year, like Astral Chain or Links Awakening

    I’m really bummed that the styluses are pre-sold out. I don’t particularly care for the keyring. Likewise with Fire Emblem: Three Houses LE (though the complete OST is likely to be released later in the year anyway).

    If JB can’t give me two copies with two styluses on Friday morning, I will be doing business with Big W or Amazon instead.

    Thanks for informing me of the Amazon flash sale! Was a great deal! It does seem to be finished now though and back to the regular $89 price.

    I can confirm that JB has plenty of styluses and key rings which are given by default for both versions. I bought two copies of the standard edition. Just bear in mind that staff may not be aware that two separate versions exist, or that they may have been requested to supply the limited edition by default.

    The standard versions are not shrink-wrapped (which apparently is standard with Nintendo first-party releases) and the stylus and key ring are both supplied in individual packaging. The limited edition, however, is shrink-wrapped, and the individually wrapped key ring and stylus are adhered to the shrink-wrap of the game case. The stylus is a bit smaller than I anticipated (it’s a bit shorter than the average ballpoint pen), which may be worth bearing in mind for those with large hands.
