I'm looking forward to it. Nintendo has done a good job advertising it on their YouTube videos, but the walkthrough videos I've watched have left me cold. But hey, Wii U is the only next gen console to have a game that the majority of reputable reviews gave 10/10 / 9/10. Why aren't they advertising that?!

Because Nintendo are utterly useless at marketing. Something normal with the Wii U.

Nintendo are great at marketing when they want to be. The 3DS, for example. When a new game is released for that, I'm sick of bloody seeing and hearing about it on TV. I have also seem some 3D world adverts on TV.

Nintendo just aren't advertising the stuff they should - they are the ONLY next gen console not to charge to play online! Why isn't this a sticker on every single copy of CoD: Ghosts? They should be screaming it from the rooftops!

Because NIntendo's target market doesn't care, mainly- but you're right, it's odd that they aren't highlighting that considering a lot of the marketing so far for the Wii U has been about features- Miiverse, Off-TV play, etc.

(Although they might be avoiding it so as not to confuse punters when subscription games reach Wii U, which there are some planned, I believe.)

Yep. I love the system, but I do think that Nintendo's advertising with the Wii U has been terrible. Even the first E3 trailer of 3D World made it look somewhat dull, which it clearly isn't.

Currently making my way through World 3 - it really is a joy to play!

As usual with Mario games I probably won't frustrate myself collecting everything there is - I'm just loving the journey.

So what do you think of it? I'm enjoying it... but at the same time slightly disappointed. It just doesn't feel like the Mario game Wii U owners were waiting for. Whilst it's a great game, I actually don't understand the universal praise it got...

I've only played the 1st stage so far! but my initial impression was! ..... It's nowt but a graphically tweaked 3DS game! ... It didn't blow my socks off I've gotta admit!

This game was supposed to save the Wii U. Microsoft and Sony would tremble at Nintendo's feet...then reality kicked in

To be fair, it's holding its own. On ShopTo 3D world is the top bought game, beating all PS4 releases, whilst the GAME charts show it is only being beaten in software by Killzone and Knack.

Considering the UK Wii U install base isn't huge, it's doing pretty well! It's a shame it launched the same day as the PS4, actually, as it's chart success is going to be hindered as a result.

Nintendo's (questionable) strategy seems to be deliberately releasing their big games at the same time as the new consoles. Zelda: ALBW came out the same day as the Xbox One.

When all is said and done..it's still the best game released on any console this Christmas(that or Zelda 3DS). If that doesn't sell systems ..then it's really a shame as it's the most deserving.

PS4 and Xbone's launch line-ups are no better than the Wii U's were ( worse based on review scores).

Nintendo certainly need to up their marketing (instore and on TV)..but at present they seem to have gone back to the Gamecube era. Minimal advertising spend in an attempt to break even financially as opposed to risk losing largersums of money.

Hopefully they'll give Mario Kart 8 a bundle,loads of marketing...and a sub 200 price. If that game doesn't sell Wii U's nothing will.

Still.. much like the Gamecube and Wii it'll likely end up with the best reviewed game of the generation....so even if the sales are shit, it'll have some great games..

...which is all that really matters when it comes down to it.

I'd like to try it (even if it's spiritual predecessor 3D Land is mediocre) but I'm not buying a console to do so. People might say it's my loss, but I think it's Nintendo's really in the grand scheme.

Despite Mario3D being **more of the same** it's an absolutely fantastic game!! .... & worthy of its praise ... I hadn't played it enough 2 cast judgement earlier!!

The WiiU is the only console 2 own this xmas!!

CoD Ghosts looks no better on the Wii U than it does for the PS3 which has a much larger player base and also provides online free of charge.
