Target Announces Its Top Selling Products


Target has released their sales thus far for the busy Holiday shopping season and Apple along with Nintendo seem to be raking in the sales. According to the popular retail chain, the three top-selling products this year were the iPad, the Apple Watch and the Wii U. It’s refreshing to see the Wii U mentioned in the list and we will see if the big N can ride this momentum deep into the Holiday season.

Congrats to Apple and Nintendo for taking the top 3 spots from Target.

North American Amiibo Holiday Commercial

Nintendo has put out a new North American Amiibo Holiday Commercial for everyone to watch. The 30 second spot showcases the popular toys from Nintendo and will no doubt boost sales of the popular figures (we if they needed help). The new ad mentions the figures’ compatibility with both the New Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, but only begins to discuss a few of amiibo’s many features.

If you have 30 seconds, give the commercial a watch.

Xenoblade Chronicles X – Battle Trailer

Xenoblade Chronicles X looks pretty insane so we hope this one makes it under out tree come Christmas. Xenoblade Chronicles X launches on 4th December 2015 exclusively on Wii U.

Check out the new trailer and enjoy.

Xenoblade Chronicles X has been a long time coming (I remember seeing this on a Nintendo Direct…what 2 years ago) so it’s nice to know that we are so close to the release of the game.

Check out the footage and let us know what you think. Xenoblade Chronicles X is set to hit the Wii U December 4th.
