Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Cool new little trailer from Nintendo UK

"No one said you could touch."

Alright, they got me haha. Suddenly, Bayonetta.

Yeah, it's not bad. Better than anything I've seen from NOA I suppose.

Sweet, with all that it's actually a solid line-up so far!

Now put in on tv. Even if it's too long they could easily cut it up in three parts and have three different ads to show on a given tv-night. This would work better than all the weird ads that try to explain what the Gamepad is about but fail. Just show games, the giant picture of the WiiU at the end should make people realize it's a new console, and the system should be fine.



That's a very well done quick view of upcoming exclusives.

That is perfect for gamescon too. I'd like to see something similar in TV commercial form.



Got a bit boring in the middle but that was pretty good.



That's just a sizzle reel of games, I don't see the big deal.

TV ads have to be 30-60 seconds and convey an image/attitude to people who aren't Nintendo fans or may not be all that interested in a Wii U.

Nintendo's problem IMO is they themselves don't even know who the target market for this console is. Is it hardcore players? Casual players? What's the age demographic supposed to be?

Bayonetta making a faux sexual comment with the camera pointed at her crotch after four clips of cartoony platformers for example sends a confusing message. Of course Nintendo fans like it, but they don't need ads to get excited about a Nintendo lineup.

Sizzle reels are 1990s marketing, you need to first know your product and your demographic these days and be a little more sophisticated in how you market. The early Wii marketing and "Wii Would Like To Play" was well done and clearly showed an image consistent with the product.

NoA need advertising like this instead of the utter crap they've been running since the Wii U's launch.
Show case games, and lots of them, without the "kids" ads that repel more buyers than they attract.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Goosebumps!



"Games are a trigger for adults to again become primitive, primal, as a way of thinking and remembering. An adult is a child who has more ethics and morals, that's all. When I am a child, creating, I am not creating a game. I am in the game. The game is not for children, it is for me. It is for an adult who still has a character of a child."

Well obviously the goal is to appeal to both hardcore and casual players and all demographics. Why would anybody make a console aimed at one particular demographic? U have games like Wii Fit/Wii Party aimed at casuals and Bayonetta/X for the core and games like Mario/Smash/Kart that have casual-core appeal. Whether or not they succeed in capturing all those markets in unknown but its clear thats the goal.



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

This shit should be the ad on tv in every country that sells the wiiU... Blown fucking away

Oh hey they put X's tentative release date/year. Xciting.

I hope Smash Bros. 4 won't get delayed like Brawl did.
