Four new games added to $20 Nintendo Selects line

Skipped the Wii? Now's the time to feast on its bones

TODO alt text

Today Nintendo revealed the next four classic Wii titles to earn the "Nintendo Selects" treatment - Super Paper Mario, Mario Strikers Charged, Punch-Out!! and Super Mario Galaxy, one of this generation's best games period. As of August 28, each will be marked at $19.99 and semi-ruined with gawdy red packaging. Serious (i.e. anal retentive) collectors should hit stores ASAP to scoop up the remaining white-boxed copies marked down to $20 before the Selects versions are all that's left!

In all seriousness, these are all outstanding titles (Strikers less so, but still quality) that more than justify the purchase of a Wii, should you be among the nine who don't already own one. I know we all joke about dust collecting on this system, so now's the chance to put it to good use; and if you forgot, theprevious four gamesinthis line are worth your time too. As for today's reveals, here's our verdict on all four:


Brilliantly walks the line between casual punchy-punchy and hardcore depth


A near-perfect blend of old, new and RPG chatiness


The most eye-poppingly intense "sports sim" on Wii


Prepare to have a smile permanently branded on your face
