BEHOLD! With Christmas just around the corner, it’s time for Nintendo to remind parents to pick up a gaming console to keep their kids occupied during the festive period.
The 2DS XL is getting pushed hard in the charming Christmas commercial above. It makes sense from a marketing point of view as the 2DS XL comes in at a much more affordable price point than the mighty Nintendo Switch. The ageing tech in this system is sure to be a hit with families with younger children and there are lots of lovely evergreen titles in the 3DS library to choose from.
The commercial centres on Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D and Mario Kart 7, the latter of which is bundled with the 2DS XL system. You could pick any of these titles and have happy kids this festive season, so this is a spot of canny marketing if you ask us.
