Nintendo eShop Downloads Include New Super Mario Bros. 2 This Week


This week’s biggest Nintendo eShop download won’t be available until later in the week. That’s New Super Mario Bros. 2, which is scheduled for release both at retail and on the eShop on August 19th. Nintendo have not officially stated a price, but the game is expected to cost $40—the same as its retail counterpart.


The other new game available for the eShop this week is a “point-and-shoot” adventure called Crazy Chicken: Pirates 3D. This is another title by Teyon, publishers of one of the cheapest eShop games available. Like its predecessor, Crazy Chicken: Pirates 3D costs $2.
