Nintendo America Shows Off Three Mario Kart 8 Commercials

Nintendo of America has uploaded three lovely Mario Kart 8 TV commercials that should certainly be watched. The first commercial – which we published earlier - showcases the game’s unique feature, the anti gravity mode. The others two trailers showcase the Boomerang Flower and the immensely handy, Super Horn. You can watch all three videos, below.

Here’s The Sonic Boom TV Series Trailer

The Sonic Boom television series, coproduced by SEGA of America Inc. and OuiDO! Productions, will debut on Cartoon Network in the U.S. and on CANAL J and GULLI in France during the 2014/2015 season. The series is an ensemble comedy consisting of 52 x 11-minute standalone episodes packed full of high-adrenaline action. Every episode starts from a small character-driven story and explodes into an epic tale of saving the world, robot battles and more.

“We want to ensure that the Sonic brand continues to evolve and appeal to new generations of Sonic fans and this different look introduces a fresh approach that will be at once both familiar and new to consumers. We are committed to supporting this initiative to provide great entertainment to fans for all aspects of their lives.”

Enjoy The Latest Pokemon X & Y North American TV Commercial

Nintendo of America has just uploaded the latest television commercial for Pokemon X & Y on the Nintendo 3DS. The advert is similar to the last one which features a number of teen actors speaking about the new features contained in Pokemon X & Y. The game is due for release on October 12th worldwide. What did you think to the most recent advert?

The Wii U Is Somewhat Portable

Although the new Wii U is primarily a home video game console, who’s to say you can’t take it with you and play it on the go? You don’t always need the TV screen to see what is being displayed by the Wii U, because of its unique touchscreen controller, the Wii U GamePad.

This means that, for example, if you have your Wii U powered on via a car power adapter, you can play full games, including Scribblenauts Unlimited and New Super Mario Bros. U, on road trips without dragging along a cumbersome TV.

The Wii U GamePad Is Also A Nifty Universal TV Remote

By simply pressing the TV Control Button on the Wii U GamePad, you’ll have access to digital buttons that allow you to control the television as if you’re using a designated TV remote. The digital buttons, which appear on the new controller’s 6.2 inch touchscreen, allow you to turn your TV on and off, change channels, switch between various inputs, and control volume. The Wii U GamePad’s digital buttons can also function with cable boxes.
