Magical Nights Nintendo.png

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.
