Nintendo is slashing the price of the 3DS and giving away a ton of free games to early adopters. While I'm sure that's grim news for those who actually work at Nintendo, the marketing for the move doesn't have to follow suit!

The first ad up top is for the British 3DS-owning public. It's sombre to watch. A couple of paragraphs in and you give up hoping it takes a turn for the hilarious and resign yourself to the fact it's a commercial featuring nothing but a wall of solid text. No muzak, no animation, nothing.


The Japanese one is better. It's at least a little brighter. To remedy things, I fixed the British ad. It's the last clip in the gallery above.
