With only sixteen days to go until the release of the Wii U in North America, Nintendo has finally decided now is the time to kick the advertising campaign for the system’s launch into high gear. And it looks like the Big N believes in the power of dubstep to sell consoles if what they have termed their “Wii U Advertising Campaign Launch Video” is anything to judge by. Well that and people hanging out in spaces that seem like a demented children’s toy/board game come to life. Also released were details from Nintendo on what exactly the promised Deluxe Digital Promotion meant to accompany the purchase of the premium 32 GB black version of the Wii U will entail. Check out these details and the video below to see what I mean and judge for yourselves.
Guess that ad gives new meaning to the term *pauses for effect* game-cubes. *proudly bows as the audience boos and begins to throw things at the stage* The really sad thing? Those game-cubes are leaps and bounds better than my first apartment. Now there was the stuff of nightmares. Moving on, the details of the Deluxe Digital Promotion make it clearer than ever that a. the Nintendo Wii U Deluxe model is clearly being targeted at the hardcore gamer and b. that Nintendo is dead serious about supporting and pushing digital sales of games, not just eShop originals but full retail releases as well, going forward. Stay tuned to Blistered Thumbs for continuing coverage of the Wii U in the lead up to the system’s launch on November 18 in North America and be sure to check out our look back and celebration of its predecessor via the Wii 25-in-25 in the meantime.
