So... Nintendo fucked up again. Kamiya tweeted a while ago about how there isn't any marketing for The Wonderful 101. He is saying how stores aren't marketing it because they don't understand what it is.
You are controlling a bunch of heroes and you can transform into different things. Yeah. Very hard to understand. Anyway, he is also saying how there are no previews in magazines and such. He compares it to Okami by saying how nobody understands it. Sigh...
I REALLY DON'T WANT THE GAME TO BOMB LIKE EVERY PLATINUM GAME EVER MADE, but Nintendo just keeps fucking up. This game is getting a Direct, but the people who will watch that direct alredy know the damn game.
I will suggest this idea until Nintendo fucking gets it. Start a new series of NPC toys featuring heroes from the Wonderful 101. Market the heck out of the game and the toys and everything will be fine. But, NO! Of course they are not going to use that idea that is almost common sense given the type of game The Wonderful 101 is. Why?
Because it doesn't have a Mario sticker slapped on it. It doesn't have a Zelda sticker slapped on it. It doesn't have a Mario Kart sticker slapped on it. They are playing it safe instead of taking minimal risks. And Nintendo wonders why their sales are struggling.
