Robin Williams, Legend of Zelda Ad Campaign Continues


Share this Post

It always seems the truly genius ad campaigns are the simple, less-you-have-to-think-the-better ideas. Sony hit their advertising gold with the Kevin Butler PS3 ads, and Nintendo has Robin Williams.

Since this is the 25th anniversary year of the Legend of Zelda, it's no wonder why Nintendo has gone to such lengths to release so many games. What better spokespeople than Robin Williams, and the daughter he actually named Zelda? The duo conducted the original advertisement a few months ago for the release of Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D (which looks amazing on the handheld).

The lone commercial has now turned into a multiple ad campaign. With a commercial for the Legend of Zelda: Four Swords game which is a downloadable title for the 3DS.

And the latest commercial, which is for Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. Releasing in November for the Nintendo Wii.

As someone who's been a Legend of Zelda fan since the original, I have fond memories of actually sitting down and playing it with my mom (she was the one who actually beat Ganon). Seeing these commercials brings all the great Legend of Zelda memories back again. Almost can't wait for the next game release to see some more commercials. Genius.
