I was happy to see these games in a local ad. I'll take this opportunity to get Super Mario Galaxy and Super Paper Mario sometime soon at a great price.
Super Mario Galaxy, Super Paper Mario, Punch-Out!!, and Mario Strikers Charged join existing Nintendo Selects lineup at $20 price point starting August 28.
Nintendo's low-cost line of Wii games is receiving a handful of high-profile new additions this month. Effective August 28, Super Mario Galaxy, Super Paper Mario, Punch-Out!!, and Mario Strikers Charged will be added to the Nintendo Selects line of catalog titles with a $20 price tag.
The trio of Mario titles is led by Super Mario Galaxy, GameSpot's 2007 Game of the Year. The portly plumber's other pair of games being added to the budget line consists of the role-playing game Super Paper Mario and arcade soccer game Mario Strikers Charged.
The final title receiving a price trim is Pinch-Out!!, the 2009 revival of Nintendo's vintage boxing franchise. The game saw the return of Little Mac to the ring, where he was once again challenged by familiar foes like Glass Joe and King Hippo.
Good now i can pick up Super Paper Mario & Punch-Out 4 cheap. I already own Super Mario Galaxy & have no interest in Mario Strikers. Now i wonder how long it'll take 4 them 2 lower the price on Donkey Kong Country Returns & Kirby's Epic Yarn cuz i want those games as well.
@ Poodger None of my friends can play as Metaknight,I suppose because of his fast,but relatively weak moves. I'm a total boss with him.I play all the time with my brother,and I've gotten quite good with a large list of characters,but when the going gets tough,the tough get Metaknight. Not to brag on myself or anything,I just really like Metaknight.
Sweet. I believe I shall be piking up SMG1 (Oddly I never bought it because I would borrow it from a friend,but I have SMG2.) And I'll likely grab Paper Mario.
Finally, I thought these games would never drop in price. I already own SMG1. Punch Out might be a good purchase for me. Strikers Charged might be okay to play. Might skip Super Paper Mario, though, due to the reviews I heard on it.
We already got the Mario Strikers one. All I want is for Nintendo to re-release Metroid Prime Trilogy. That's all I'm really interested it. I can barely find it anywhere.
@Oni_Taedo You should also know that Diddy Kong was one of the strongest characters in the game as well.
@Oni_Taedo Metaknight was actually considered the best character in Brawl. He is frequently put in his own "S" rank in the tier lists, being better then the best characters Brawl had to offer.
@GeigerdolylWodd I played it, spent nearly seven months playing nothing but it (not neglecting my training or work, of course). And decided it wasn't worth a full price tag. Sonic and Snake don't make the game better, Snake is a decent character that is hard to use, and Sonic is like Mario, only if Mario was as fast as C.Falcon was in Melee. Also some of the new characters were either absolutely terrible, and just no fun to play as (Ike, Metaknight, Lucas, Dedede), or just okay (Lucario, ROB, Diddy) and the only kinda good ones were Wario, and PKMN trainer. It was good, yeah, but not better than Melee.
The new Punch-Out!! looked a lot more like the original Arcade game with Little Mac being semi-transparent. Yet in the original home console 8-bit Nintendo version of it he wasn't. @Oni_Taedo Super Smash Bros. Brawl was a good game you don't know what you missed. Unlike the Game cube version Sonic the Hedge hog is really in it and Snake is even in it.
@gatsbythepig Don't remember the name, but the cover of the game has a red embroidery. I know Twilight Princess is among them, other than that, I don't know. I sure hope Brawl is, because I'm not paying full price for THAT.
I am not aware of 'Nintendo's low-cost line of Wii games'. I looked it up and I can't seem to find them anywhere. I'd like to buy some other games that are already part of the line-up. Is there a name Nintendo associates with their reduced priced games? e.g.- 'ultimate collection', 'best hits', 'best seller', 'GOTY'
omg! i finally picked up galaxy yesterday....for $35, sonuva....*sigh* whatever, still good news on pinch....err punch out and paper mario, guess ill be playing those till skyward sword comes out
Unfortunately, I already own just about every 1st party Nintendo Wii game :P So I can't think of one that might be 20 bucks that I don't have
Sweet! I knew this was a rumour, was hoping it was true... Now I'll finally be getting SMG and SPM! :D
Super Mario Galaxy was one of the best games of this generation. If you don't have it already, I highly suggest picking it up when it gets down to this price.
Super Paper Mario was pretty awesome. If there's anyone with a Wii who hasn't played it, they should pick it up.
Finally Mario Galaxy and Super Paper Mario have now dropped in price! Time to add some games to my Wii collection!
