Mario Kart 8 currently has three commercials airing in Japan. They’re pretty zany and par for the course as far as Japanese advertising goes, but it’s always interesting to see how Nintendo markets its products between different regions. Hopefully we’ll see similar commercials soon in the United States, as the release date for Mario Kart 8 is only a few days away. My favorite is the second one in this round up. Which is yours?

The Clockwork Being These commercials are really good. Gives me that vibe from the previous Nintendo Eras. darkcreap Yes, and I love how they show the game running on the gamepad only with not TV just beside the WiiU, giving a clear differentiation from the Wii. Hope this does it for Nintendo. mjnathans Thank You Josiah For Posting These. I feel like they have been up for more than a week though! Wake Up Ashley! If you spent less time re-posting negative rehash Nintendo criticism you would have caught this. Sub-scribe to Nintendo’s YouTube Channel already, like a true Nintendo fan! Alexizzle I have actually sent WiiUDaily a email when the first of the american commercials were released with a link to it on youtube. So they knew, but for some readon decided not to post it….. mjnathans They haven’t been doing podcast in months, but the last few that were posted were nothing but negative bitching from Ashley regarding Nintendo financial situation. I understand that Nintendo is not doing well in regards to Wii U sales, but she comes across as “overly critical” What happened to her optimism?.I thought this was a fan site. I don’t expect her to sugarcoat plain facts, but a true Nintendo Fan should at least act like they still have high hopes for Wii U. Why rehash financial statistics over and over when we already know things look Grim. All this negative hype does not help the console do any better. Why not write an article addressing how fun the system is, or how everyone(a majority) that actually owns the system, Loves it. SuperUltramagnus what a stupid comercial! nintentdo comercial suck! Chase U I WISH i could get 11 other of my friends for us all to play online together but that would be a hard feet to accomplish.. BIG Franky there are three MK8 commercials out now in the states playing on Disney channel(s) and Nick, and Family network, etc…. I also saw all three at different intervals played before the trailers during Godzilla this past weekend… The Clockwork Being Well thats good to hear especially if it played before Godzilla. Nintendo seems to be getting with the advertising now. Gabe Hoffman Also Cartoon Network from what I have heard Adrian Some of the comments the “gamers” made in Japanese are pretty hilarious. — “It’s like a dream!” Nostalgic_Chaos “Mario Kart ‘oh’ eight’oh’.” Adrian it would probably be Ka-ru-to e-i-to. crocodileman94 Close, but it’s Kaa-to. Adrian Yeahh, you are right! WiiUisgaming They guy from the last minute freak me out, his face was weird. steveb944 Dude’s crazy with his crazy hair. LukeMM95 I wish there were subtitles. condor87z Ah to be Japanese again.
