What the Wii U needs is a mascot



What is Nintendo's new Wii U missing? I'm probably alone to be of this opinion but I would have loved it to have it's own mascot. Something along the lines of Disc-kun who always appeared alongside the Famicom Disc System in all advertisement. Some adorable little character to associate with the new system.

Obviously this would have no affect of the actual hardware which is arguable what I should be interested in. But using a cute mascot to market the system would really appeal to the 12 year old fanboy still living inside of me, who sees Nintendo less as a game company and more as a way of life. To that Miyamoto-worshiping little boy some new big eyed creature would be the perfect prophet to bring the good news of salvation inherent in two screen console gaming and convoluted control options.




Pulling out the SNES box still tucked away safely under my bed it it easy to see what sold me on the system. Sure the collection of fantastical Mario characters gracing the box informed the consumer of the Super Mario All Stars packin, but more then so for the younger version of me Mario was the very embodiment of Nintendo and their video game system. I wanted the magical system waiting for me inside that box not because of the boring red Nintendo logo printed on it but because it had a freaking wizard Mario on it.
