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.
