Presumably this is the beginning of their 2nd half of the year push in the region now that they have actual games coming out semi-regularly. All of these products, along with a White Premium SKU hit stores in Japan on Saturday, July 13th (2.5 weeks away).

Official JP Wii U page has been updated to white from black: http://www.nintendo.co.jp/wiiu/index.html
Nintendo also sent out a spam/promotional e-mail from the Wii U eshop to those with NNIDs (Image via Tilmen: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BNu7SIUCcAIiG8u.jpg:large), featuring the Wii U eshop charge campaign, Pikmin 3, FFVI and The Secret of Mana.

It be interesting to see how long they run for. Hopefully J GAF will keep us updated in the media create threads.

As bad as the first half looked and deserved the "what they hell are they sitting around doing" posts, it would have all been a waste without the monthly they titles to push that they finally have now.

Bundling Nintendoland and a remote is a good idea, the new WIi Play?

Edit - Holy shit Pikmin 3 looks amazing in that second ad

If they can go from this:

to this


in a little over 12 months on what is ostensibly a modified Wii engine, imagine what they can do with a ground up game.

The best thing for me with these ads, is hearing the original Pikmin CM song Ai no Uta brought back for Pikmin 3's cm. Was one of my favorite songs when I came to study in Japan in 2001 for the first time. I even bought the cd for it. Great to see it back!

I really want to see what the advertisements in North America will be like now that Iwata is NoA's CEO. Will they stay crappy or will Nintendo get serious, perhaps get a new firm, and actually try to sell the damn Wii U.

Luigi's Mansion 2 at Wii U launch would have been cool. Instead... a handheld game, cool?

That's interesting - the background behind the Wii U logo in the beginning is white now. It was black in the previous commercials. They also made white Premium models; could this be a sign of a small-scale rebranding? White is a softer colour, and I guess it'd be more "appealing" or friendlier to casual gamers.

I'm sorry the images aren't very good quality, but it was just supposed to be a quick show off of the changes in lighting, shaders, & textures.
