NBA 2K18 Switch commercial airs during NBA season openers

Posted on October 18, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

The Switch version of NBA 2K18 was in the spotlight yesterday as the 2017 – 2018 NBA season kicked off. During the game between the Boston Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers as well as the Houston Rockets and Golden State Warriors, a Switch-specific commercial aired.

The ad itself isn’t anything too special. It takes a few seconds from the launch trailer mashed together with some Switch footage. Still, it’s noteworthy that the Switch version of NBA 2K18 is being advertised in this fashion.

Here’s a look at the commercial:

    Well it has sold the worst on switch, its a nintendo system so you have to remind people its even on the system… Games like this, Madden, COD… are auto million sellers on the PS4/X1, almost like the only million sellers(not shipped) on nintendo systems are games with nintendo characters in it… SO you actually need promotion for switch 3rd party games… im talking major games, not those vague indie statements saying it sold well on the switch, as usual with no numbers.

        The guy said a bunch of nonsensical things, but you lose any respect if you react like this. This is not the proper way to answer.

        Holy sh!t… I have no words, just get out…

    • To be fair, the other versions of the game were promoted pretty heavily heading into the launch LAST month.

      Yesterday was like, a new launch for the game on a new platform (even though it was available digitally). I’m actually surprised they did a big commercial like this for that version during opening night. I’m thinking this was more so a Nintendo commercial for the product than a 2K one (aka, Nintendo made it and paid for it).

      And you need actual promotion for all games.

      I don’t understand why are you here if you don’t like anything Nintendo related?

      Is Sony paying you? Otherwise what’s the point?

      • Trolling. Or just that kind of negative sh*t-posting that has become popular lately, sadly enough.

    I’m glad Nintendo is still advertising the Switch and its games. This was sorely missing during the Wii U era

    Glad to see that, I saw so many promotions of multiplatformer games that came on the WiiU like Splinter Cell, Assassins Creed and call of Duty that simply didn’t had any mention that the game was also available on the WiiU.
