Nintendo Hosts Wii U Experience In Los Angeles

The advertising campaign for Nintendo’s next-generation console Wii U is underway, with a brand new trailer hitting the company’s YouTube channel recently.

Nintendo of America is less than two weeks away from releasing its high-end console in North America, with November 18 set as the date for the console to hit the shelves in the region.

Even though the internet has been flooded with countless news regarding Wii U in the recent months, the campaign to start creating an appeal for the console through advertisements has only begun recently.

The new Wii U commercial features several gamers getting a hands-on experience of the upcoming console, while a colourful theme with an energetic music in the background adds its own special abstract flavour to the experience that is being promised.

Nintendo is giving customers an option to customers to choose between two Wii U models, with the 8GB basic model priced at $300, whereas the 32GB deluxe version boxed with a copy of Nintendo Land priced at $350.

Since the revelation that the latest Nintendo console will be launching with 23 titles, the excitement that was seen missing during the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) earlier this year has finally surfaced.

The console has managed to garner plenty of third-party support, with both the developers and publishers beginning to realise the potential and promise the high-end console holds.

Wii U will be launching in North America with 23 titles, which include but is not limited to Assassin’s Creed III and Call of Duty: Black Ops II, two of the biggest and most-anticipated titles of the year.,

With the third-party developers showing a great deal of interest in Wii U, Nintendo has been able to delay some of its own big releases to next year, which in effect would help the company to extend the life and demand of the console and thus enable it to maintain a desirable sales figure.

Some of the renowned franchises, such as Zelda, have been confirmed for 2013, which has the fans and Nintendo enthusiasts extremely excited.

There were some concerns regarding the Wii U’s unique tablet controller GamePad when it was first revealed, with a number of developers voicing strong reservations and even demanding for an alternative more traditional controller.

This eventually compelled Nintendo to introduce the Pro Controller, thus resolving whatever issues some developers and publishers had with the GamePad.

With the passage of time, however, more and more game-makers are coming to terms with the unconventional controller that is going to accompany Wii U and learning to weave it in the design of their game, thus creating a strong synergy between the two.

While Wii U will be hitting the North American market two weeks later, the release date of the console for Europe and Australia is November 30, whereas the Japanese customers will be able to get their hands on the next-generation console on December 8.
