Nintendo of America began re-releasing some of its more popular Wii titles back in May at new budget prices, and today the company has announced that it's adding four more games to the Nintendo Selects series. Joining The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, Animal Crossing: City Folk, Mario Super Sluggers, and Wii Sports at the $19.99 price point are Super Mario Galaxy, Super Paper Mario, Mario Strikers Charged, and Punch-Out!! Here's some of Nintendo's press release:
Three of the four new additions to the Nintendo Selects collection invite players to interact with Nintendo's iconic Mario™ character in imaginative and entertaining ways: Super Mario Galaxy is an out-of-this-world adventure in which Mario must travel through outer space to rescue Princess Peach™ from the devious Bowser™; Super Paper Mario offers classic Mario RPG action that can be switched from flat 2D worlds to a full open-world perspective; and Mario Strikers Charged finds the Mushroom Kingdom crew storming the soccer field for fast-paced athletic kicks. Also, the fan-favorite Punch-Out!! game delivers motion-controlled boxing thrills with a host of memorable characters. All four games feature multiplayer modes that let friends and family members have fun together.
As the company itself notes, this batch of Selects titles seem to be the Mario set. Super Mario Galaxy is a must-own for anyone who has yet to experience it, but I'm betting that most of you Wii-come-latelys missed out on Super Paper Mario. Nobody really talks about it anymore, but it was certainly one of the most enjoyable Wii experiences of 2007. Definitely add it to your shopping list if you missed out on it the first time around.
