Video: Nintendo Game Developers 'Sing' About Their Upcoming Wii U Releases

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Splatoon! Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker! Star Fox! More!

So, we admit, that's a cheeky headline, though we trust the 'Sing' and image have tipped you off to what's really going on here. Nintendo has released a rather funny video of its big-name developers singing songs about their current Wii U projects... in Tomodachi Life.

One of this game's most humorous features is the ability to customise the lyrics to a few different songs, something we've been doing in our Days Of Our Tomodachi Lives video series, for example. Nintendo's now jumped in with the Mii characters of various prominent developers singing about titles as diverse as Splatoon, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, Yoshi's Woolly World and Star Fox.

This is pretty zany stuff in action, but check it out and let us know what you think.

Did he just announce that there will be a demo available for Mario Maker?

So while they advertise Tomodachi Life, they advertise their upcoming games, or the other way around. That is brilliant.

But it is still missing Aonuma singing about Zelda U.

The last one at the end sounded like "Master of puppets" by Metallica

Oh my god the Splatoon one got me, pretty smart to advertise upcoming games by using a game itself. ;)

I knew it was going to be a Tomodachi Life video, but I assumed it was going to be a fan creation. I love that Nintendo is doing stuff like this.
