These Nintendo Illustrations to Highlight The Wii U Difference are Just Too Good

Hardware advertising, Japanese style

It's little secret that Nintendo will be aiming to up its game, in territories all around the world, in selling the Wii U concept to the masses. We expect that these marketing efforts will retain the hallmark style for which Nintendo is famous — in other words, there'll probably be plenty of light-hearted, humorous campaigns.

That certainly seems to be the case in Japan, where a fresh web page highlighting Wii U features includes some rather awesome pieces of artwork. They show off-TV play, the GamePad as a web-browsing device, various TV options and, an old favourite in Japan, how the GamePad can make karaoke more fun.

Check them out below — we think these could be the most fun homes ever.
