Ah right, we should absolutely need a recap of which videos fall under the "ad" label: those videos get bigger amounts of views by nature, so comparing them to videos that do not appear as ads as disingenuous. Can anyone check specifically which ones are ads in US? I've read Bomberman is an ad there on Twitter, but I wanted a clearer statement on the situation as a whole.
I said it elsewhere but Nintendo fans were HUNGRY for Sonic Mania. Fact: The Switch trailer for it in the OP is actually not far behind the original upload of the trailer by the Sonic the Hedgehog YouTube channel which is at 2.37m.
This is for a trailer that barely has any changes aside from the Switch logo at the end (apparently thee are very minor subtle differences, but not anyone will see at first glance unless they perfectly memorized the original trailer or something).
And also the Switch version's Collector's Edition on Amazon is sold out.
And people still doubt Nintendo is Sonic's strongest market.
It's the biggest system seller game Nintendo has - that hasn't had a handheld variant in Japan.
People though Splatoon was a runaway success(biggest new IP in Japan since Wii) just wait until whole parks are filled with kids playing Splatoon 2 in Japan during summer vacation.
I dont think that is a good metric to know which game is more popular in each country.
I mean, I am from Brazil and I watched the videos from the american Nintendo youtube chanel, because the videos there get more views, which means it will be in the "popular videos" section on YouTube. Everyone from every country will probably watch the most viewed video, because that is the one that will climb to the main page.
In fact, generally the so called "american" chanel is actually the "worldwide official" one. The same happens with PlayStation and Xbox. There is a reason the chanel is named "Nintendo" and not "NintendoUS". It is THE official chanel.
Haha, first time seeing the parental controls video! That is an absolutely amazing video, and I like the way it works as well: seem really functional, especially for parents who are not that much into gaming themselves but want to buy their kids a game as a present or something. Nice job by Nintendo.
Exactly. German here and I didn't even know there was a German Nintendo channel on Youtube. I was very surprised to see the Zelda trailer even was dubbed in German (and other languages beside Japanese and English).
