This could have been a lot better if they went with another approach on the advertising.

not impressed. But better than the original wii u commercial with the dubstep crap

Most anticapted game - Mario Kart 8....

A chimpanzee could market better than NoA.

Bet with Einsam_Delphin: I say a ground-up Wii U Zelda won't release in 2014. (Hyrule Warriors doesn't count)
Bet with fatslob: I say Watch Dogs Wii U will be technically inferior to the 360/PS3 versions according to Digital Foundry.
Bet with Einsam_Delphin: I say Monolith Soft's X won't release in 2014.

NoA is clearly targeting kids with these commercials, but I think it's a mistake to market Pikmin 3 to kids.

Exactly. Pikmin is a title with lots of appeal to adults, but they're applying the same "must be a kid's game" label to it that their naysayers already apply to Nintendo stuff.

This kind of thing scares off the self-described "hardcore" gamers, and whether Nintendo likes it or not, it could use those gamers' money.

Did we just return to the 90s? What the hell is NoA doing with these ads lately?

I agree. I am interested in this game and I intend to get it, but if I didn't know about it and was first made aware of it by this ad I would not bother with it. Horrible on their part.

It's OK, but the japanese one is a lot better.

Nintendo of America is marketing too much to kids. If they keep this up they truly will end up with another Gamecube on their hands. If you market to Adults kids will like it too, but not vice versa.

I liked the add until the Colonel started speaking. So unfitting.



Ongoing bet with think-man: He wins if MH4 releases in any shape or form on PSV in 2013, I win if it doesn't.
