Australian New Super Mario Bros. 2 release date set for August 18th
Nintendo Australia has this morning announced that New Super Mario Bros 2. will be released in Australian and New Zealand on August 18th. The game will be released both at retail but also available to digitally download from the eShop. You’ll be able to download the entire game from home or at ‘participating retail partners’ who will be announced in the future. All Nintendo 3DS games from Nintendo and eventually Wii U games will be available to digitally download this way going forward.
The release date of the game again puts Australia smack bang in the middle of the America and European release who are a day later and before respectively. Nice going.
So then who’s going to download it or are you going to pick it up ‘old school’ at retail?
