Nintendo airs first Wii U commercial on national TV

The first British TV commercial for the Wii U has found its way online.


The 60-second TV spot lists a number of new features that the Wii U offers with an extremely chipper British voice over in the style of an infomercial.

The ad doesn't look like it was made with a big budget, in fact it looks more like a fan-made commercial put up on YouTube. The commercial is strange and will have you raising your eyebrows when you watch it, but it works. It highlights what the Wii U does differently to other consoles, shows off the main launch titles and most importantly it's fun.
