Red Steel 2 - getting any advertising?

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Red Steel 2 - getting any advertising?

As far as advertising goes, I didn't even realize this game was out until I saw it on a torrent site. (Don't worry, I bought it legally instead of using the torrent.)

omg - will nintendo fans every be satisfied? does every wii game have to have a GTA/halo level advertisement budget?

Er...no. How about...ANY advertisement budget?

 

 

With that said, I have seen a couple ads for Red Steel 2 on the air. 

well, if you've seen a few ads then red steel 2 got an advertising budget didn't it.  near as i can tell it got a better ad budget then a lot of HD releases actually.  so when the OP and first couple of replies to this thread are trying to create image that red steel isn't getting any ads and already getting ready to flame ubisoft for a lack of committment to their wii games...well i just find them silly.

My post wasn't even SLIGHTLY directed at Red Steel 2 and was directed at other third-party Wii games that have gotten very little if any marketing push. No More Heroes 2, for instance?

 

If I had an issue with the advertising with Red Steel 2, I'm pretty certain I wouldn't have mentioned that I've already seen ads on the air for it. 



I've seen the Red Steel 2 commercial a bunch of times, especially during Adult Swim on Cartoon Network.



Kingdom Hearts 3 Bet: If Kingdom Hearts 3 becomes a multiplaform title/is not Wii exclusive then I will be banished from this land for 1 week and sing my praises to those who have proved themselves to be more intelligent than I.http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y267/RDBRaptor/rdbraptor_sig16.jpg%5B/IMG%5D">

Heh, the second ad is pretty good, if slightly deceptive. The first was shit.

I wonder how much better this will sell in the US than Europe because one region seems to actually be getting ads.

It is largely a technical exercise but feedback is appreciated.

I saw an ad the other night on the comedy channel 'DAVE' here in the UK.
That's the only reason I knew it was out in the UK, so I bouht it.
£29.99 on Amazon with Wii motion+ or £49.99 from the rip of merchants Game and Gamestation down the hight street.

Well, at least it's the right demographic.

Pfft, put it on C4 or FIVE. I'm tired of seeing those GOWIII, Heavy Rain and FFXIII commercials. -_-
