ONM Remembered – #118

“The time has come to use magic, draw swords and swing morningstars…”


from official Nintendo Magazine issue 148 (January 2005)

I must not have the head for advertising, but I’m eternally fascinated by how so many ads choose the strangest way possible angle to promote something.
Like, Final Fantasy. There’s a lot of angles you can play with! You can get the anime fan vote by shanghai-ing some cosplayers and getting them under some mood lighting. You could play to the fantasy aspect and have a steampunk airship flying above an airport.

Or you can play up the portability by having a monk with a Game Boy for a head. Yeah. Sure, why not. I mean, what do I know?
