GAME and Gamestation Give Away Mario 3DS Pouches

But only if you pre-order

With Super Mario 3D Land out next week and Mario Kart 7 hot on its heels two weeks later, GAME and Gamestation are stepping up their pre-order initiative with two giveaways.

Pre-order customers will receive a 3DS pouch bearing artwork from the relevant game when they purchase their game. Neat giveaway items, but as we'd bet many 3DS owners will buy both titles it's a bit of a missed opportunity not to offer something different with Mario Kart 7.

Still, you can never have too many freebies, particularly ones bearing Mario's face.
