The girls from popular Japanese mega-idol group AKB48 are featured in the latest promotional video for Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS.
The clip opens with the Mii creation of Mayu Watanabe. She then “joins the battle” as a Mii Fighter (pictured above), with her fellow idols Yuki Kashiwagi (bottom left) and Minami Takahashi (bottom right) also participating.
Watanabe proceeds to go fist-and-fist against Mario, before it turns into a massive AKB48-versus-Nintendo battle.
Watch the promo below.
Thanks, Games Talk.
Update: Nintendo has released the full version of the commercial, now showing the AKB48 Mii Fighters battling in-game. Watch it below.
