Kidman to be new face of Nintendo

Nintendo has chosen Nicole Kidman as the face of its latest advertising campaign.

The Moulin Rouge star is to promote More Brain Training from Dr Kawashima, which measures users' speed and accuracy in completing aptitude tests.

The company said it hoped the star's "universal appeal" would help to extend Nintendo's success beyond its traditional young, male audience.

Kidman will be seen in TV adverts which launch this week.
