Nintendo Throwback Sale: Super Mario Galaxy 2 $10 for Wii U, Mario 3D World $45, Yoshi + Pushmo deals


Announced this morning during its Nintendo Direct video series, Nintendo has launched a new Throwback Sale in its eShop for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. While most of Nintendo’s discounts aren’t particularly newsworthy, this one is a better deal than most, because each week includes a steeply-discounted Wii U title, plus smaller discounts on several Wii U and 3DS releases.

The biggest steal in the bunch is Super Mario Galaxy 2 at an all-time price low of $9.99 (reg. $20 digital, $36 on disc), which is today being offered for the first time as a digital download for the Wii U. As the flagship original Wii Super Mario game, Galaxy 2 features an interstellar theme with completely 3-D planets. Also available for the next week at reduced prices are:

  • Super Mario 3D World ($45, reg. $60, $52 on disc)
  • Yoshi’s Island: Super Mario Advance 3 [Game Boy Advance Virtual Console] for Wii U ($6, reg. $8, cart here)
  • Yoshi’s New Island for 3DS ($30, reg. $40, $37 on cart)
  • Pushmo for Nintendo 3DS ($3.49, reg. $7)
  • Pushmo World for Wii U ($7.49, reg. $10)

Next week, Punch-Out!! will become available for the Wii U, followed by Metroid Prime Trilogy one week later. Nintendo has indicated that some Wii games – unfortunately not Super Mario Galsy 2, we’ve learned – will no longer require special Wii controllers to play on the Wii U.
