Mario Takes the Gold as the Big and Bold Nintendo 3DS XL Hits Stores SuperCheats News
Nintendo has launched both an exciting new game and a cool new system to play it on.
U.S. residents can now get their hands on two of the hottest video game products of the year: New Super Mario Bros. 2 and the new Nintendo 3DS XL portable system. Nintendo 3DS XL offers screens that are 90 percent larger than the original Nintendo 3DS, and sells at a suggested retail price of $199.99.
The newest game to play on the system -- or the original Nintendo 3DS system -- is New Super Mario Bros. 2, the follow-up to the best-selling Nintendo DS game of all time, which sold more than 10.3 million in the United States alone. For the first time, Nintendo is giving consumers a variety of ways to buy the game.
Shoppers can purchase a packaged game as usual at retail locations nationwide. They can go to a participating retailer and buy a code to download the game directly to their Nintendo 3DS system over a broadband Internet connection. Or they can simply purchase and download the game on their own from the Nintendo eShop using a wireless broadband connection. Regardless of purchasing method, the game sells at a suggested retail price of $39.99.
"The larger screens of the new Nintendo 3DS XL really bring all your games to life," said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America's executive VP of Sales & Marketing. "The colors and visuals in New Super Mario Bros. 2 look great, especially when all the levels are packed full of gold coins."
