Nintendo Holiday Site & Commercial Hit
October is almost over and Nintendo is jumping straight into holiday mode. This makes sense as the majority of Nintendo’s sales come from this time of the year. To kick things off, Nintendo has a new site dedicated to the hot games and accessories available this Christmas season. Kids and adults can add the products they want to a wish list, which then can be shared through Facebook, e-mailed directly to the gift giver, or printed off old school style to give to the technology illiterate.
In addition, Nintendo has created a new commercial showcasing the hottest products for the New Nintendo 3DS XL. Zelda: Tri Force Heroes, Pokémon Super Dungeon, and Super Smash Bros. are advertised. Yo-Kai Watch is notably absent, but we just saw the new commercial solely dedicated to that game, so that may be why it’s left off of this thirty second spot. Chibi Robo Zip Lash and LBX are missing as well, but I guess Nintendo has to get the most bang for its buck when it comes to TV commercials.
Which games are you planning on asking for the holidays? I know I’m most excited for Xenoblade Chronicles X. Let us know down below.
