Nintendo is slowly starting its Wii U advertising campaign, and where else to start but in Japan? The below billboard was spotted in Japan just yesterday, which means… it has begun. It’s only matter of time before Nintendo expands the ad campaign to the rest of the world.
They did a pretty good job of promoting the Wii back in 2006. Remember the “Wii would like yo play” ads? We can imagine the new ones being “Wii Would like to play with U”. But we’ll leave that sort of stuff to Nintendo.
The good news is that Nintendo has started rolling out their ads. They have been shipping Wii U promo materials to retailers over the past month. Nintendo usually ramps up advertising about a month before a console launches, so by the end of October we should be seeing online ads, TV commercials, and of course, billboards.
