Nintendo prescribes price, new name for Dr. Mario

Eric Caoili

Since the game was announced, we've heard sources cite Nintendo's Dr. Mario WiiWare game (bundled with Brain Age 2's Virus Buster minigame) with two different titles, Dr. Mario's Virus Buster and Dr. Mario & Bacteria Extermination, both likely direct translations of the Japanese title, Dr. Mario & Saikin Bokumetsu.

If you kept your eye on the Digest Video that introduced today's Nintendo Channel release, though, you might have noticed Nintendo of America's official name for the puzzler: Dr. Mario Online RX. Not bad!

The two-and-a-half minute clip also revealed pricing for the game: 1000 Wii Points ($10). Unfortunately, there's still no word on whether Mario Mario, M.D. will debut with the download service's launch.
