Some weird Year of Luigi video by Nintendo of America

#1 Edited by DarthOrange (3809 posts) -

So apparently this is what Nintendo of America has been up to. After not hearing a peep out of them for months they come out with this promo(?) for New Super Luigi U.

Don't get me wrong, this is a very well done and very entertaining video with several professional parkour people. However, does this actually make any of you want to play New Super Luigi U or buy a Wii U? I doubt this is going to be put on TV or in movie theaters so I have to ask, who the hell was this made for and for what purpose!?!?!? Hell Nabbit only appears in the Wii U games so that chase can really only be appreciated by those that have played the recent games.

Anyway, the Year of the Luigi rages on and shit keeps getting weirder. After the train in Chicago and now this I am curious to see what Nintendo has up its sleeve next for the green guy.

I thought this was entertaining and yeah, a little weird. I don't know if that whole video is as weird as the first 11 seconds of this Japanese New Super Luigi ad. What's going on?

You didn't lie. It was definitely weird.

Also, Luigi doing a handstand on "Square". WHAT DO YOU WANT TO TELL US NINTENDO?!

Of course Nintendo jumps on that hot parkour bandwagon... in 2013.

Cynicism aside, it was a fun little video. Wonder why they didn't put it out earlier?

Oh shit this is a Wayside joint. I love those guys!

But yeah, this doesn't make me want the game any more than I already do.

You'd think if those guys were going to buy expensive cameras and editing equipment, they would at least spend something on microphones.

Calm down there, dude. Darth, Jason and I are the closest of internet friends and I was making a joke. But seriously, Nintendo is stagnant as shit on the IP side. Denying that is silly. I love them but seriously...come on.

While I'm definitely not excited for Super Luigi U, I thought the video was fun. Sorry man, I just don't like people shitting on a video saying it's uninspired when it's obviously just made for laughs.

Again, it was a playful jab and nothing more.
