When New Super Mario Bros. 2
arrives in August, Nintendo will give everyone who buys the downloadable version some extra Club Nintendo
coins. Registering a store-bought copy of New Super Mario Bros. 2
will get you 50 coins, but if you download it you'll get 100 coins instead. Those looking to download will want to make sure they've registered their 3DS account with Club Nintendo first.
As the first game to launch simultaneously at retail and as an eShop download
, New Super Mario Bros. 2
is in a unique position to push Nintendo's new digital distribution system, especially with the promise of extra fake coins.
