Grown Men Totem Up in Japan’s Zelda: Tri Force Heroes TV Adverts


It’s always amusing to see the quirky television adverts that Nintendo produce for Japan, often being a far cry from the more gameplay-orientated marketing that western audiences are treated to.

Nintendo 3DS exclusive The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes is no different, seeing the company recruit three actors who put in a comedic performance as they ‘Totem Up!’ in a way that reflects Link’s new multiplayer adventure. Each advert closes by promoting Local and Download Play, while indicating that Online Play will be region-locked to those questing in the same country.

The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes will release exclusively for Nintendo 3DS in Europe and North America on October 23rd.
