2 Recent Wii U Commercials aired on TV

and this

Compare those to this...

It's clear Nintendo is aiming at the kids market for sales.

MS/Sony targets teens/adults.

#2 Posted by lundy86_4 (43021 posts) -

They aim at multiple markets. Bayonetta 2 kinda undermines your point.

If the game is fun then so what? Mario games r fun for kids and adults.

#4 Posted by clyde46 (45133 posts) -

TC doesn't like fun I see.

#5 Posted by g0ddyX (3906 posts) -

The Sheep on here beg to differ.

Fun?

Every game can be fun.

ZombiU isn't for kids

And anyone can enjoy Mario games

#7 Posted by psymon100 (6138 posts) -

wii u isn't for kids. it's for kid flavoured substitutes made from tofu.

Indeed, nintendo wants to get the kids/casuals.

Although this time it's harder because ninty's new gimmick doesn't catch the attention of casuals.

Yeah, btw dude.

Last night I went to Target with a couple of friends, the night after Black Friday there was still a stack of Wii U's available, these were the NSMB Wii U ones too.

The Wii U sales are pretty much what the Wii would have been selling like if the gimmick didn't take off the way it did.

And What does Knack cater to?

#11 Posted by Pikminmaniac (8776 posts) -

It's kind of funny. These "kiddy" games offer a higher difficulty peak than the majority of mainstream "mature" gaming. Makes you think.

Those commercials are a good move because Nintendo is targeting an audience that the other two seem to overlook for the most part.

Show me one Nintendo commercial post-Wii era that seemed like it was targeting the teen-adult demographic.

Wind Waker is entirely too complicated for kids...

#14 Posted by foxhound_fox (87757 posts) -

It's designed to appeal to all demographics from young children to adults. And not those insecure with their image adults either, true, have-fun-for-the-sake-of-fun type adults.

Implying you need guns and violence to appeal to the teen generation.

Was thinking the same thing, most ''mature'' games are very easy 6 hour campaigns or so, while most ''childish'' games can take up like 14 hours and be very difficult

Nintendo didn't make Zombi U.

Sony made Knack and KZSF

Also you will never see anyone in High School, College, or anywhere be like lets go play Mario or Nintendo.

When people talk or want to play something with there friends, its lets go play Xbox or Playstation.

More games Nintendo did not make, keep it up.

Tecmo, the creators of Ninja Gaiden and Dead or Alive aka mature games made that commercial.

Try again.

You asked for a Nintendo commercial. I gave you one.

Your argument is flawed, and was disproven. Just skulk away, and we'll forget you in a few minutes.

The logic you just spilled means Killzone is not a Sony game because Sony didn't even actually make Killzone.

#27 Edited by X1PS4Life (243 posts) -

It appears as if Nintendo desperate attempt to try and reach the kids market isn't working

If you are a gamer, this should make you happy.

I'm happy

If you're a "gamer" this should make you really REALLY sad.

Also that Metroid Commercial is a Nintendo commercial. It was half developed by Nintendo (directed by a major Nintendo developer)and half developed by Team Ninja and published by Nintendo. Get your facts straight before making such comments

Yeah, like the rest of the world, Japan is done with Nintendo inability to create new titles.

Saw a stack of Mario Edition Wii U's at target last night.

You are welcome.

I gave you a first party Nintendo title and you discredited it because it had Team Ninja on it.

Must Be Nintendo EAD before it can be considered a Nintendo game huh?

No, Nintendo as you saw with the Wii era would prefer if games like Wii Sports and Wii Fit were the norm. Games such as these are much easier on devs and can be popped out easily whereas hardcore games require a lot more work/effort.

Gamers rejoice, Nintendo will either move the handheld market soley or pull out of the gaming business (best option for us)

#36 Edited by AtariKidX (6211 posts) -

Those Commercialsare are for laughs....lolol

kids casuals they don't care for the Nintendo games anymore.......they want PS3 and XBOX360 because they are better and cheaper than the Wii eww.

Tecmo used the IP from Nintendo and made there spin of the game, had Nintendo made the game this commercial would look similar to the one on the OP.

This, kids today can grow up playing games like Killzone, Halo, GTA, Battlefield, CoD.

Sheep really think todays kid give a f*ck about Mario?

Mario to kids today is a saturday cartoon line up kinda joke.

Things are different now and unless Nintendo learns to adapt they aren't going to be around much longer.

That is a Nintendo WiiU TV spot, using a third-party Mature rated game. Sorry, bro.

At the end of the day, your argument was debunked in this thread.

That's why Mario games on the Wii outsold pretty much every other game last gen?

This is the trend globally, Worldwide disinterest for the Wii and Nintendo.

See the way people went insane for XB1 and PS4? None of that would happen for a Nintendo console.

Wii U is on its way to selling worse than the Gamecube, Wii was a fad which sent many of its owners to letting the thing collect dust thus allowing them to move on to PS/Xbox and seeing the light.

Nobody cares about the Wii U.

True.........kids today they love games like Battlefield, CoD,Killzone, Halo,Gears of war,God of War and many others.

The only ones who buy those Nintendo games today are girls gamers who love those poor and silly nintendo games.

Honestly how hard is it to delete quotes? Good god it's not difficult. Anyways, here Metroid Other M was developed by "Project M", a team which consists of staff members from Nintendo, Team Ninja, and D-Rockets.

Yeah, exactly.

Nintendo is desperately trying to reach out to the audience that may care about them, little girls and pedos (srs)

Literally all the people I know who bought a Wii all say fuck WIi U and want a PS4 or X1.
