New Super Mario Bros 2 Will be Nintendo’s First Digital Offering

by | @AttackFanboy | on April 26, 2012

Nintendo recently announced that the 3DS will be seeing another Mario Adventure this summer, but the next Mario title will also usher in a new age for the company.  According to a recent announcement out of Nintendo, the title will be the first to be offered as a digital download.

Posting from a live briefing, David Gibson reported the news via Twitter.  “New Super Mario Bros 2 will be offered for packaged or full download to SD card,” according to Gibson.  New Super Mario Bros 2 will see a release in both the traditional packaged form and full download, much like the PlayStation Vita does with its releases.

This marks a step into the digital era for Nintendo, and the first time that the company has ventured into this type of delivery service for its customers.  More as this develops.
