Hideki Kamiya and Platinum Games community manager have revealed that there's lack of hype for Wonderful 101.
WTH? No one has approved this? This is important for everyone to read. See? Even the gamers seem to be uneducated on the title. grrrr I approved...
What? A Platinum game NOT being marketed? Shocker...
Yeah there was hardly any marketing for Okami.
tbh most of cover studio is gone now (within platinum ) making up studios like grasshopper studios and other studios but I agree with you over Okami not getting the marketing it deserved.
Or Vanquish. Or Anarchy Reigns.
Wasn't Metal Gear Rising marketed well enough? That game sold very well from what I heard.
It had some marketing but the main reason it sold well was the fact that METAL GEAR was in the title. Bayonetta also had a fairly sizeable marketing campaign, but it was so tailored to japanese audiences from the beginning with all the trailers focused on sexuality and partial nudity that it alienated americans.
I agree, MARKET THIS THING NINTENDO! It looks amazeballs!!
They will next month.
there's still over a month until it comes out, just a few commercials showing off the gameplay would boost sales
Yeah in August. The marketed Pikmin 3 in Japan early this month and Game & Wario for US.
Could it be that a similar game called Pikmin 3 is coming out in a month's time?
Wonderful 101 looks way better than Pikmin 3.
Maybe so, but in terms of fanfare P3 is getting all the attention.
poor game is gonna flop even though it's looking awesome. ;(
Awesome? That's debatable ;)
Nintendo did say that they will push Wii U advertising for the second half of 2013 starting with Pikmin 3 in August so hopefully they include W101 because it's shaping up to be a really cool new IP.
It's just hard being a wii u exclusive.
That guy is full of shit anyway. xD
What the hell is Wonderful 101 anyway? Sounds lame
The title is called like that because you control 100 little superheroes. So, the 100 superheroes need to save the world, or something like that... with YOUR help, making YOU the Wonderful 101th one. Personally, I think it's quite a charming concept. :)
They can't be that super if it takes a hundred of them...
There's this thing called the internet. On the internet you can find information on anything and everything, and often everyone. On this internet there are things called search engines. They help facilitate finding this information on anything and everything, along with a few helpful links to random porn sites, and are quite simple to use by typing in what it is you're looking for. Using a search engine to facilitate finding of information allows you to not only become informed on "what the hell something is", it allows you to make a educated opinion on whether or not you would consider it lame(There's the added benefit that typing in Wonderful 101 into a search engine would likely return various aforementioned porn sites). By doing so you can create detailed arguments and further constructive discourse with others who also know about the internet and search engines, all while not looking like you're too lazy to do any sort of research whatsoever, and expect everyone to just hand you an answer because you are unaware of the recent advent of the world wide web. I hope that I have helped you learn something new today. It's always a good day when you can learn something new and exciting. Tomorrows lesson will be on Wikipedia, where you can quite literally find out educated details on every subject imaginable, all in one place(mostly).
Lol if I don't know how to use the Internet how'd I get to N4G? It's not on the Internet?
Yeah, because a title totally determines a game's quality. *rolls eyes* Next.
You know there's a website called Wikipedia that will tell you exactly what you need to know in case you haven't heard of that either. Why don't you go on there and do some research about the game instead of judging a book by its cover?
Man you Nintendo fans are something else. Now I know why Kamiya is getting so annoyed on twitter. I feel sorry for him.
Knowing Nintendo i'm afraid his fears are real. Nintendo lately has been terrible at marketing. Hell I haven't even seen one ad for Game & Wario despite being the first big Wii U game in months. Same goes for Lego City. Unless it's Mario or Pokemon don't expect Nintendo to actually put effort to advertising it, sadly. And no posting pictures on Twitter is not advertising.
Nintendo release Ads of their games One Month prior to release.
the game looks excellent cant believe Nintendo aren't advertising the hell out of it??
Yeah Kamiya be concerned and later when your games (W101 and Bayonetta 2) sell poorly just blame on Nintendo for not marketing and fans for not supporting. You chose to go with Nintendo as exclusive so now face the consequences.
Yeah. As if going multiplatform guarantees success. He chose to go with Nintendo because only Nintendo was willing to fund the next Bayonetta. Sega wanted nothing to do with it despite the first game being PG's highest-selling game to date.
Kamiya is trolling guys. http://www.gonintendo.com/?...
