Wii U TV spot attempts to explain console's unique features

The Wii U is going to be a somewhat tricky console to market outside the core audience; this TV spot, apparently the first to grace British TV, makes a decent attempt at it.

This low-res capture comes straight from YouTube so I can't make any claims regarding its authenticity or timing; however I feel perfectly qualified in opining that this is an ad aimed firmly at the less-informed Wii owner and not the well-informed elite such as your fine selves.

The Wii U releases in the US on November 18; in Europe on November 30; and in Japan on December 8. Get all the details at our Wii U launch hub.

Thanks, Kotaku.
