New Super Mario Bros. 2 is $69.95 on the Australian eShop
The usual Thursday night eShop update has gone live and with it the price for New Super Mario Bros. 2 on the store has been revealed. It’s not available yet, it’ll be available on Saturday morning when it goes on sale at retail.
The damage? The game is on the eShop for $69.95, the full retail price of the game here in Australia. If you’ve been reading Vooks this week and following our bargain guide you’ll know the game is available cheapest at Big W this weekend for $54 and a dollar more at Target. Most other retailers also have the game under $60. This of course is a special price for the opening weeks, we have no doubt it’ll be back up to $69.95 at retail for the next few years too.
So is the convenience of a digital download and the sacrifice of a nice box and manual worth paying retail? We’ll leave you that to judge in the comments and with your wallet.
