In recent weeks Nintendo of America has rolled out its Holiday adverts for 3DS, utilising its biggest franchises to pitch the portable to the public. It's now issued a TV commercial for Wii U, and we rather like its approach.
The general pitch is of 'magical nights', with some CG Nintendo effects in a family's home before they pop down the stairs to play Splatoon, Super Mario Maker and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. It's a similar concept and style to the 3DS adverts, and for our money does a really nice job of showing off the Wii U and a few of its very best games.
We're hoping this marketing will work on some, at least, to give the Wii U decent sales for the rest of 2015. Check out the commercial below and let us know what you think.
