This is for the digital download version only.  Hoping that this will be the regular price once it's given a release date, so I can use the discounted eShop cards from December's BestBuy sales to get it for an extra 20% off.  In the meantime, this is $10 off the physical version if you were thinking of getting this game digitally.

Good find. Doesn't seem to be eligible for GC stacking with it...

Thanks!  The url works for me, but it's probably using something in my cache to do so.  Put in your link instead now. :)

Gamer's Unlocked doesn't stack with digital downloads.  If that was what you were asking.

Yeah just realized. That's kind of a deal breaker. If you're GC, I suggest waiting for the retail cart version in case it sucks or you get bored from it you can always sell or flip. I don't understand why digital is even remotely close (or the same price) as retail, but alas, that's a point for another topic thread.... I'll try to bring it back to mario golf. I am very excited about this game.... Just hope it isn't delayed again... Whenever they actually schedule it for release.... Ughh

I'd be more excited if it had the RPG elements of the previous handheld versions.

so tempting. like mario tennis 3DS, it could flop. Hmm...better off waiting for reviews. If it underperforms then it'll be $20 mere months after release


Best Buy deals have really gone downhill ever since lowering GCU price to $30

XBL deals are absolutely shit compared to PSN, but even those have been sucking

DELL is absolutely the worst online retailer for video games. Avoid them at all costs.

Aw, what's wrong...does an internet opinion about video games disagree with yours? Cry more.

Nintendo's DRM sucks though. Thanks for posting OP.

Considering how much I loved the GBC & GBA versions and hated the N64 "Nintendoed" version, not having the game be labeled "Role-Playing Golf!" this time means the franchise is dead to me.

I can't wait for this game, especially with the online play and communities (from MK7) should make this a worthwhile purchase. However, I'll wait for the physical copy for pre-order to get the GCU discount :P

Physical preorder is here.  It's full price $40, so with GCU, that's $32 for physical. ;)

I feel like this would be a good game to have a digital copy of to have with you at all times. You can jump in and play a short round of golf whenever you feel like it, and return to whatever main game you're currently playing without the hassle of having to switch cartridges / carry multiple cartridges around.

It's an absolute shame the GCU 20% off doesn't work on digital games. Awful. I'd pre-order this digitally if it did. I hope Best Buy will change this policy in the future...

Has it been confirmed the 3DS version doesn't have the role-playing elements?  It would be the first portable iteration to not have them.  The console versions never did have them.

 

How do we know the game itself won't be $29.99 when it releases?

 

I'm also a bit concerned/confused about getting a code for a pre-order game with no release date.  I guess when it comes out, they e-mail you the code?  Anyone had experience with this?  What if they don't send the codes out right away?

 

Do we pay now, or upon release?  I wonder when it'll even come out?  (Sorry for all the questions.)

 

(But here's one more.)  How come this is the only digital pre-order with a discount?  (Assuming this is a discount...)

 

Looks like I'd pay sales tax, too, unlike on the eShop.  hmm.

Am I the only 1 who loved Mario Golf 64?

I don't see why it's disliked so much?

Then again I never played the portable versions before.

I really enjoyed all of them, including the console versions.  I just always assumed it was a thing where the portable iterations got RPG modes and the console versions did not.  Hard to say if they'll continue that trend, but it sure seems like the RPG mode is popular.

 

I played the heck out of the Game Boy Color version and loved it, but I never played the Game Boy Advance one much for some reason.

 

I can remember being 18 and dying my hair blond while playing Mario Golf N64.  Wonder if it's why I'm bald now.  :)

I'm looking forward to this game, but I've never played a Mario Golf game before. How does it compare to Hot Shots Golf?

Same schtick but with Mario characters.  Hot Shots Golf, a.k.a. Minna no Golf ("Everyone's Golf") was created by Camelot Software planning.  They quit after the first Hot Shots and began doing Mario Golf instead.

 

Hope it's still them on this one, anyway.  I think the last version to come out was Gamecube, wasn't it?

You would be correct.  Having a new Mario Golf will be a welcome addition to the 3DS lineup.  

 

Still not sure about ordering this version though.  I'm a big fan of carts still.

I definitely want the digital version, yet I'm still wary of this for some reason.  I want it the day it comes out and don't trust them to send me the code on time; I also don't trust that the eShop version won't be $29.99 (although that seems crazy that it would be so low).

I'd love for the retail price to be $29.99.  After Animal Crossing and DK3D were $34.99 last year, was expecting more $34.99 titles, so was surprised when this and Mario Party 3DS were listed at $39.99.  If we knew for sure that the eShop price would be $39.99, I'd probably bite on this, even with the eShop credit built-up from the Best Buy December sales.  Just don't know if that's the case or not, though.

 

Edit:

On that note, hoping the early $29.99 price for Layton indicates that it'll be under $39.99 when it releases, too, but we'll see.

I wonder how long we have to decide on Mario Golf?

 

I don't see Layton for $29.99 on Best Buy.  Hm.  Amazon shows it for $39.99.

 

I wish digital stuff would just regularly be $5 or $10 less than retail.  If retailers don't like it, they can sell the digital codes themselves (and knock a few more bucks off from Nintendo's price).

Layton was $29.99 on Amazon when it first went up for pre-order.  It changed to $39.99 a few days (weeks?) later.  Hoping that the early $29.99 price is indicative of it maybe not being a full $40 title this time.

I feel like I've seen little to no details about this game. Can anyone point me in the direction of an article that might explain some of the game modes available in the game? The 3DS Mario Tennis game was a big let down for me. I've done some googling and haven't been able to find much info on this game.
