The lights are on
GameStop has announced that it will have an exclusive bonus item for those who pre-order New Super Mario Bros. 2 online.
The bonus item is a gold Mario pin (pictured) will be mailed out with copies of the upcoming 3DS game that are ordered online through the GameStop site (it will NOT be given out to in-store purchases).
In the UK, the retailers GAME and Gamestation will be handing out a cartridge case shaped like a Mario gold coin (to be honest, it's way cooler than the U.S. pre-order bonus -- what gives Nintendo?). The coin holder is pictured below.
