Nintendo announced today that it will be lowering the price of three of its best selling Wii games. Starting today Super Mario Galaxy 2, New Super Mario Bros. Wii and Wii Sports Resort retail for $29.99 each.

Nintendo is always reluctant to drop prices but lately they've been doing a lot of it. Lowering the price of it's Wii U system by $50 as of September 20 and introducing a new, non-3d but more economical handheld, 2DS.
