Nintendo of America has been pretty creative with its video commercials over the past 12-18 months, with live-action and entertaining campaigns for titles such as Pikmin 3, Mario Kart 8 and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, and it's also adopting a quirky approach for the New Nintendo 3DS XL.

The "New is Good" videos feature a University 'Professor' demonstrating the improved features of the New XL models, in these cases the C-Stick, super stable 3D and faster CPU. Naturally there are Mario and Luigi mascots on hand, and the overall tone is certainly another step away from the bland infomercial approach that's so common in marketing.
