In what surely has to be a response to my criticism, Nintendo has unleashed a new holiday commercial focusing on the Wii U and its latest games. Also, since I wrote that article, Nintendo has announced a new Wii U bundle for Black Friday that includes Super Smash Bros. and Splatoon, available at a few retailers for as low as $249.99. Again, I’d like to take credit for that, but we all know these plans have been in the works for months. To be serious, it’s great that Nintendo is offering up some promotions and advertising for its home console. At least they have a little bit of fight left in them.
Oh, and did you catch what type of controllers are being used in that ad? Who would have expected that in the year 2015 Nintendo would air a commercial featuring GameCube controllers?
