Nintendo Really Pushing Splatoon in Japan

Screen Shot 2015-04-06 at 5.09.52 PM

Here is a shot of the Splatoon Japanese in-store advertising. It appears as though Nintendo is marketing this game very heavily in store and we hope that things turn out well for them. Splatoon looks like a standout title and could be a sleeper hit or sorts for 2015. The game is headed to North America next month and we will be there when it’s released.

Do you guys think Nintendo will do something similar in the US?

Here is the adorable Yoshi’s Woolly World box art for the US. This box art had to be one of my favorites of all time and we think it’s the bees knees. We found out during the Nintendo Direct on April 1st that Yoshi’s latest adventure on Wii U won’t be coming to the US until the fall but that won’t stop us from focusing all our attention on the game.

Check it out and let us know what you guys think.
