Nintendo has some major releases landing at the moment in North America, with Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Tipping Stars out this week on Wii U and 3DS, and Code Name S.T.E.A.M. on the way as a 3DS retail arrival in the coming week. Naturally Nintendo of America is using YouTube to promote these games, in very different ways.

First of all we have a useful video for the latest Mario vs. DK arrival, with the title's Director - Stephen Mortimer - talking us through the level creation tool.

Things then get weird in this Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. trailer, with the quirkiness of the Intelligent Systems game being emphasized through a sing-along.

Finally, the weekly Nintendo Minute show tackles a debate that could have no end, Super Metroid vs Metroid Prime.

Let us know what you make of these videos, and argue over the merits of the iconic Metroid titles in the comments below.
