Nintendo has announced that the New Super Mario Bros U DLC game, New Super Luigi U will be released on the eshop on June 20th. However, in the spirit of the Year of Luigi, Nintendo has decided to release a stand alone copy of the game at retail. That version will be released on August 25th and will cost $10 more.If you already own NSMBU, you can get the DLC from the eshop for $20. If you are like me and prefer physical copies of your games (or you don’t already own NSMBU), you can buy the retail release for $30 two months later. I am thrilled that Nintendo decided to release this at retail, but not sure I want to fork over $30 for DLC (not too sure I want to pay $20 for it either). Hopefully, the retail release will get some launch discounts or sweet preorder bonuses. If not, I may wait for a price drop at retail. What about you?
