Nintendo has released the very first Wii U commercial in the US. And compared to the British Wii U TV ad, the production value here is vastly improved, featuring a giant set with lots of rooms with different Wii U gamers. The 1 minute ad will likely be cut down to a more normal 30 second spot when it airs, but overall, it looks pretty good and original. It’s clear that Nintendo is aiming this ad at the casual crowd, since no hardcore games were seen. It shouldn’t be a big deal, since most hardcore gamers already know about the Wii U.
