Wii U Advert Gets Banned In UK As It Was Misleading


The UK Advertising watchdog ASA have banned a Wii U advert as it claims it mislead consumers. The advert was banned because Nintendo implied that all Wii U games can be switched from your TV to your Wii U GamePad. As we know, this isn’t the case, as only a few select games support this functionality. The advertisement stated ‘Say someone wants to watch TV when you’re halfway through a game … do both, and everyone’s happy’. The ASA took the view that this was misleading and have since banned the advert in the United Kingdom.
