Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Super Mario Odyssey Musical commercial is awesome!

Song might get stale, if they just keep using it over and over again.

There are girls in the commercial. And when I say girls, I mean girls. Not women.

There's two girls and a boy. Target audience change from young adults to children?

We are now seeing the same kind of marketing that Nintendo ran for the Wii U. The difference is that people here praise it instead of complaining about it.

It's not like Nintendo changed their target audience though. Switch was always meant to sell to both genders of all ages.

What I personally don't like about Nintendo commercials is the cheesy blend between real life and video game, like a guy or a dog wearing a Mario hat all of a sudden. Wii commercials were better because they simply showed people playing games. Ultimately though, the product itself makes a bigger difference than the marketing. Switch is great while Wii U was trash, so Wii U-like commercials aren't going to stop Switch.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Wow that's a great commercial. I wonder if Sony will do this for God of War or Spiderman.

I would love to see Kratos sing and dance!

As for Spiderman, the further away from musicals it gets, the better.



Signature goes here!

The only complaint in the whole thread was yours.
And yeah, target audience is everyone of course.

I agree on the WiiU comparison, specially with the IRL capture depictions.

Check it out! In my opinion, this is the best commercial Nintendo has done in a long time! They've been on a roll lately with commercials, so it's not a surprise!

Agreed. It's absolutely fantastic! Makes the game look just like the blockbuster it surely is.

The guy and the dog getting possessed actually gave me a good giggle.

What was more important though is how catchy the song is. People won't be able to get it out of their heads for weeks, just in time for holiday season.

That Super Mario 3D World commercial... complete with 8-bit music to underline Nintendo's heinous intentions to get 2D Mario replaced by 3D Mario. The Wii U's flagship game stood exactly for what the Wii U stood for as a whole: Nintendo telling consumers what consumers have to like, because consumers did it all wrong with the Wii.

Switch!!!

That one wasn't too bad (even though it isn't nearly as fun and interesting as the Odyssey commercial).

The Wii U had some other commercials that were way worse:




"Togetherness"
