Live Now: eShop Pre-Load for Super Mario Maker

If you’re planning on acquiring yourself a physical copy of Super Mario Maker, step away now. After all, the physical retail copies come with some lovely and enticing extras—an amiibo, or even the design ideas booklet. Happy Anniversary, Mario! Go on, celebrate with him…

But if you’re not up for that, or if the concept of acquiring yet another physical object is abhorrent to you, you can download Super Mario Maker on September 11th… and it’ll have a digital version of the ideas booklet… and to make you feel even better about yourself and your pro-active lifestyle, you can pre-load the game right now.

What does that mean? Wii U owners can download 99% of the game when they pre-purchase the title in the eShop ($59.99 USD) and on the day of release, won’t have to wait more than a minute or two to sit down and start playing.

So… physical release with goodies, or “always-be-prepared” pre-loading? You decide.
