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

on July 15, 2013 3:00 PM

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.
