3DS “Ambassador Program” video from the UK Nintendo Channel. Even though I’ve embedded it here, you don’t need to watch the whole thing. I just wanted to talk about the fact that it’s just a slow text crawl, and that’s a pretty weird choice for promotion methods.
Like, I see this, and I think something has gone really wrong. This looks like one of those commercials from a local law firm letting people know they’re entitled to part of a settlement from a drug company. Slow text crawl isn’t “Good news, guys! The 3DS is cheaper for a lot of you, and will be loaded with free games for the rest of you!”
Here’s a brief Japanese commercial, which is maybe a little more cheerful, and has, like, pictures in it.
Preorder: Nintendo 3DS ($169.99 on August 12!)
