New Wii U TV Commercial Tries to Sell the Wii U to Japan, Shows Dire Picture for Games

on September 11, 2013 2:27 AM

Today Nintendo released a new Wii U commercial for Japan, focusing on the games line-up available for the console now or in the near future.

Unfortunately the weekly sales of the console in Japan have gone back to pre-Pikmin 3 figures, so the Wii U really needs some big games to propel it toward success in the land of the rising sun.

The problem? There isn’t a whole lot of games to show, with The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD having to basically shoulder most of the impact, and when your most anticipated game for the near future is a HD remake…

You can check the commercial out just below. What do you think? Does it do a good job of selling the console to Japan?

RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
