If you visit the comment sections for a lot of their YouTube videos, you’ll learn that fans generally think Nintendo makes some really shoddy TV spots. Even when the clips themselves are solid, they oftentimes feature voice over work that gamers absolutely hate.
That’s not the case for this new The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes clip. Sure, it starts with an overused meme, but at least Nintendo has the ability to say they started it. From their, the voice over talent does a fine job quickly summing up what makes Tri Force Heroes unique.
This is a cooperative Zelda title that tasks players with conquering dungeons by stacking up, using unique items and, sometimes, donning special costumes. It looks fun and satisfying, and the ad goes a long way to help that.
The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes will launch for the Nintendo 3DS on Oct. 22, 2015.
Want an example of some of those ridiculous commercial efforts? Here you go.
Yikes. Though, the Fossil Fighters one is silly enough to work.
