Nintendo adds four more value-priced 'Selects'

Nintendo has added four more games to its Wii $20 Selects line: Super Mario Galaxy, Super Paper Mario, Mario Strikers Charged, and Punch-Out.

Nintendo has announced four more additions to its Nintendo Selects line, the $20 bargain packaging for best-selling Wii games. The new line-up includes Super Mario Galaxy, Super Paper Mario, Mario Strikers Charged, and Punch-Out. Each will retail for $19.99 starting on August 28.

The Selects line can be spotted by its red packaging, and was introduced in May. That initial crop included The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, Animal Crossing: City Folk, Mario Super Sluggers, and Wii Sports.

Now that both Twilight Princess and Mario Galaxy are included, you can get two of the three top-rated Wii games for 20 bucks a pop. Super Mario Galaxy 2 would round out the set, but you know what they say about patience.

      Nintendo is really dropping prices. I hope they start dropping their Virtual console and wiiware prices. They seem a bit overpriced.

      Hows Super Paper Mario?

        It's not Super Mario nor is it Paper Mario, but it's fun regardless. Pretty long for a Mario game though IIRC (30 hours maybe?).

        Gets really boring mid-game, so much so that you'll never finish it

          You missed the best use Nintendo has ever found for Luigi then.

            I personally think the best use Nintendo found for Luigi is the entire Mario & Luigi series.
