New Super Mario Bros. 2 will launch on 3DS in Europe on August 17, two days prior to its US release on August 19. New Super Mario Bros. 2 features a strong focus on Mario’s iconic gold coins; it seems it is all about the money, after all.
Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask, a new 3DS title in the popular, long-running puzzle series is also incoming, with the news that it will feature a new free puzzle every day for 350 days after launch. Nintendo Direct trailers for both New Super Mario Bros. 2 and Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask, as well as videos for Pokemon, Pikmin, Kirby and eShop’s 8-bit Summer collection can be found elsewhere on VG247.

Mario. Link. Captain Olimar. That obnoxious talking scale from Wii Fit. Miyamoto’s got quite a legacy, but he’s far from finished.

Nintendo has responded to yesterday’s reports that Wii-makes Pikmin and Mario Power Tennis were to retail at £39.99 – the same as a brand new game.
“Nintendo do not set prices,” said a spokesperson for the company to GI. “It is up to retailers at what price they sell any item for.”
“However, our trade price for these games will be below our usual trade price for Wii games and our present estimate of the likely retail price is in the region of £29.99.”

According to this N-Europe story, the GameCube re-releases announced this morning in Nintendo’s Japanese press conference will, indeed, be making their way to Europe.
“The GameCube conversions will be available across Europe too,” said a Nintendo rep. “However, it’s too early to announce or discuss specific details at this time.”
Yep, that means there’s going to be a European Wii version of the original Pikmin. Go crazy.
