Nintendo made everyone mad with DKC being shown off but their underwhelming announcement techique worked well as Cranky Kong was the only thing trending on Twitter out of VGX
Here's the listing
This is a common strategy among companies and here's exactly what Nintendo did:
Step 1: Announce you are going to an event you have never been to.
Step 2: Announce you are bringing some new gameplay footage to that event to get the hype bubbling up.(Announcing skull kid assist trophy before VGX, Showing off the master sword, wearing a Zelda Jacket with Zelda 1's logo)
Step 3: Make an underwhelming, but fanservicey, announcement.
Step 4: Watch the overhyped disappointment explode and ultimately the product awareness skyrocket.
What do you guys think about this free advertisement Nintendo just got
bet with ash3336 he wins if Super Mario 3D World sells less than Mario Sunshine during the first three years, I win if 3D World outsells Sunshine's first 3 years. Loser get sig controlled for 3 months (punishment might change)
Do you doubt the WiiU? Do you believe that it won't match the GC?
Then come and accept this bet
