On this morning's Nintendo Direct, the company announced three popular Wii games will be made available as downloads this month at a discounted rate on Wii U, beginning today with Super Mario Galaxy 2. It will be followed by Punch-Out!! on January 22nd and Metroid Prime: Trilogy on January 29th. The three games will cost $19.99 each, but will be half-priced during their first week of availability.
This means you will be available to buy some of Nintendo's best and still comparably expensive games for $9.99. Super Mario Galaxy 2 remains $49.99 new at Gamestop — $29.99 pre-owned. Punch-Out!! is only available used for $34.99. And Metroid Prime: Trilogy, also only available pre-owned, is a whopping $49.99.
