Wii Marketing In Full Swing

Posted by Anthony Dickens

With only a month until the US launch, Nintendo are starting to push the Wii brand across the globe.

Flickr member "branille" recently posted a photograph of Nintendo's impressive advert in Time Square's Toys R Us store in New York.

Nintendo have also announced a aggressive marketing campaign in Europe, a region which is somewhat neglected by the games industry as a whole.

The company is set to spend £9.7 million for promotion purposes from now until the close of the holiday season, and a further £6.7 million between January and March. Nintendo plans to advertise through television and cinema spots, as well as a major press campaign and demo units."

Hopefully some of this budget will get spent wisely and secure Nintendo's branding back to its former dominate self.

There are more UK marketing details on Spong.com

Lowe told us, “The average mainstream TV campaign from someone such as, for example, Walkers Crisps, aims to reach 60% of UK viewers, who will see the ad a minimum of two times. This helps to understand the size and impact of the Wii campaign, which will reach 80% of UK viewers who will see the ad a minimum of three times.”
