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

by William Schwartz


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.
