Watch the Pikmin 3 TV Commercial And Feel the ’90s Nostalgia

Nintendo has released a TV commercial for Pikmin 3, which will be aired on two cable networks targeted at children and young teens, CN and the Disney Channel.

It’s great to see Nintendo actually advertising their games on TV again and I must admit, the commercial itself is very well done and has a nice, ’90s vibe to it. The commercial invokes a certain feeling that appeals to children–the feeling of controlling a small army to vanquish enemies–without being too condescending and childish. Hopefully Nintendo can continue making good commercials like these in the future.

    I agree it has a nice flair to it. Kind of reminds me of the smurfs. I also think the commercial for Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon had a similar quality. Nintendo’s commercials are generally pretty cool now that I think about it, but it is a shame that they don’t do them as much these days.

      I completely agree. I kinda miss the days when we could see commercials like these almost everyday.
