Update (2/29 10:53am): Nintendo has now officially confirmed the new Select titles. Here in the US they will go for $19.99 each at various retailers come March 11th.

As you likely already know, Nintendo’s first party titles tend to hold their value and rarely go on sale (sometimes they end up above the original price tag!). This is where Nintendo Selects comes in. It is essentially a program that reprints older Nintendo titles and makes them available at a usually much lower price point. For example, Super Mario 3D World for Wii U still goes for between $48 and $60 (or more!), but will be about half that when it re-releases.
