About time they use that bank they got. Where was this advertising for Pikmin, Wonderful 101, Donkey Kong,etc.

Hopefully as release gets nearer they advertise bigger.

Maybe if they advertised like this before the Wii U would of sold better. Keep it up Nintendo.

DKC had a Canadian Contest thing that could have been more a viral marketing ploy

Mario Kart is one of the few games that everyone likes. EVERYONE. They better advertise the heck out of it.

More than 2 months before, people were playing the game at the best buy event last august.
If I support the game company, then I won't be supporting the blank DVD business.

GOOD

Nintendo needs to start shoving their U shaped Wii down the throat of every man, woman, and child

Now if only they'd do things like... oh, I don't know, release a Smash Bros. demo... they might be able to get some attention.

Nintendo actually marketing a Wii U game instead of a 3DS this early, let alone a Wii U game is awesome. Kinda makes me feel glad I own this system. Finally.
