Nintendo to air Switch ad during the Super Bowl



Click on the Headline for a Crummy Commercial.

Quote:
Nintendo’s First-Ever Super Bowl Ad Features Nintendo Switch, The Legend of Zelda

For the first time ever, Nintendo will run an ad during the Super Bowl. The 30-second spot, which along with an extended 90-second version can be viewed at youtube.com/nintendo, builds on the worldwide excitement for the new Nintendo Switch video game system and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild game, both of which launch March 3. The ad also features a new song by Imagine Dragons called “Believer” that premiered worldwide Jan. 31.

The star of the ad, which is scheduled to run during the game’s fourth quarter on Feb. 5, is Nintendo Switch, which combines the power of a home console with the mobility of a hand-held video game system. People can play on their TVs at home, then grab Nintendo Switch and continue playing seamlessly wherever they go.

The ad also shows off The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which breaks conventions to become the next defining moment in the classic franchise. It offers the most immersive world that Nintendo has ever created and sends players on an adventure they will never forget.

“The most anticipated video game system and video game of the year will be seen on the biggest stage of the year,” said Nicolas Chavez, Nintendo of America’s Vice President of Marketing. “Nintendo Switch will change how, when and where people play games. It’s only fitting that we’re changing how, when and where we advertise those games.”

The soundtrack to Nintendo’s ad, “Believer” by Imagine Dragons, is available now on iTunes, Apple Music, Google Play, Amazon mp3 and Spotify, and is part of an upcoming new album from the band. This is not the first collaboration between Nintendo and Imagine Dragons, whose members are longtime fans of the video game company and The Legend of Zelda franchise. At The Game Awards in 2014, the band closed the show by performing a medley of music from The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask with veteran Nintendo composer Koji Kondo.

The extended cut of the ad demonstrates the versatility of Nintendo Switch by showcasing the system in a variety of locations where home video games are not traditionally played, from a classroom to a kitchen to a laundromat. It also shows a number of upcoming single- and multiplayer games for the system, and how Nintendo Switch introduces fun new ways to play.

The names and launch timing of Nintendo Switch games featured in the extended cut include The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (March 3), 1-2-Switch (March 3), Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (April), ARMS (spring), Splatoon 2 (summer), Just Dance 2017 from Ubisoft (March 3) and Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers from Capcom (launch timing TBD). Nintendo Switch will be available at a suggested retail price of $299.99.

It would be terrible without physical controls. A card game would be perfect for phones though.

But Hipsters are an easy mark when it comes to getting them to spend money. And they have an annoying knack for making things catch on with the general population at times.

Is it just me or does this commercial make it seem like they're advertising a bunch of different things? As if this weren't a Switch commercial but a Nintendo commercial.

Well, In part I think it's because the Switch does a bunch of different things. 1 to 1 motion, HD rumble, TV/set top console experience, mobile, motion detection, split screen multiplayer by "breaking the controller in two", etc. The challenge with that is trying to articulate all of those things in a concise manner in commercial(s). Nintendo may be looking at another "communication" problem if they can't find a way to express all of those things clearly and within 1 minute or so.

It doesn't take long for Captain Grumpy to show up. Here's the thing... the Switch does a lot of things that are all game related. They're not trying to take over the living room like MS was with the Xbox.

Basically Nintendo doesn't know how to market this thing, so they are throwing all the things at the wall and hoping something sticks.

C'mon Chief, the N64 had rumble. The things Ninty are trying to hype about the switch just aren't impressive. Likely because they don't have much to show for it. A tablet with likely shit battery life, yet without the functionality of an actual tablet, a bunch of titles aimed at little children and meh hardware. Whooooopy!!!
