Nintendo has teamed up with Disney to launch a new Happy HoliGames promotion and advertising campaign.
Aside from new commercials starring Disney actors Peyton and Bradley Steven Perry, Disney is running a sweepstakes promo where the grand prize winner will get, among others, a Wii U Deluxe, bundled with the games Nintendo Land, Super Mario 3D World, and Wii Party U, as well as three Wii Remote Plus controllers. The grand prize also includes a trip to meet the two stars at the Nintendo World Store. If you’d like to join, you can get more information from Disney’s site here. Nintendo has also launched its own official holiday gift guide page, which you can see here.
Nintendo has also released two more new commercials on their own. One features snowboard slopestyle champion Jamie Anderson playing Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games Sochi 2014 with – well, Mario and Sonic.
The last commercial is the talk of the town, as this time it’s the kids telling other kids how to get the Wii U, and bringing up point blank the differences between the Wii and the Wii U. If you have any concerns about any single one commercial, I should say the combination of all of them, and hopefully more, will help raise attention to the Wii U and should guarantee the console will do well this holiday season. Check out the commercials below.
