Nintendo is in a pickle. It needs to sell more hardware before its fiscal year ends this month. January was not kind to the console, and we should soon be seeing if February was any better. For March, however, Nintendo has a few aces up its sleeve, including the delightful LEGO City: Undercover.
LEGO City: Undercover has received multiple online trailers to date, but none of them are going to have much mainstream impact. For that, Nintendo needs to make sure its first new TV ad in two months does a good job of selling the console’s unique qualities.
The ad doesn’t exactly scream system seller to me, but preexisting Wii U owners will probably buy the game as they’ve been starved for content the past few months. LEGO City: Undercover isn’t alone in March, however, as Capcom will be releasing the highly anticipated Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate on the Wii U and 3DS later this month.
LEGO City: Undercover will be available exclusively on March 18 exclusively for Wii U.
