Videos: The Mario Tennis Ultra Smash Japanese Commercials Are Surprisingly Boring

After launching in the West during November of last year, Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash is finally making its way to Japan. As such, a few commercials have started airing to promote the title. However, the videos aren’t what you’d expect from the quirky land of the rising sun. This time around the ads step out of your face, and sit down on your couch to play a seemingly plain tennis game with a dulled intensity. See for yourself in the commercials below.

  1. Typical Nintendo propaganda catering to young children and people 50 years and older. Meanwhile they forgot about and alienate the hardcore and true fans who were there from the beginning and got them where they are at in the first place through the means of our loyalty. Loyalty that is fading by the moment and by good reason. I want to see a commercial that has young adults and adults alike playing a game in a more realistic setting. Not a bunch of kids who look like they came from Mormon service playing a game to drown their sorrows after their grandmothers funeral.

  2. These commercials are as lackluster as the game. Sadly, they probably have more content as well.

    Oh well- at least they knew enough not to make elaborate commercials for an underwhelming game that no one wanted.

    Of course. What do you expect from a barebone game like Mario Tennis: Ultra Trash? Just another poor game rushed out to hide the fact there is a game drought. Much like Splatoon back during the Summer of 2015. Least Splatoon got updates til it was finally worth it’s asking price, though. This… This is just tragic.

    Should have just released an HD remastered version of the Mario Tennis game that people loved with DLC of Rosalina & the other new characters new to Mario Tennis. It probably would have done a hell of a lot better than this AND been better received! Since it would have been an HD remaster with just a few new characters added, it should have taken the same amount of time to make as this if not slightly longer. Game drought or not, some good quality would have definitely been better than quantity.

      In fact, the only reason the first two years of the Wii U’s life was bearable for me was because even though there were game droughts, at least SOME the games we did get were of fantastic quality like Wind Waker HD, Hyrule Warriors (the lack of an online multiplayer not withstanding), Bayonetta 2, Smash 4, & Mario Kart 8 (to a point). Then there was Wonderful 101, which I sadly did not play but really should have considering the lack of Nintendo games at the time of the game’s release.
