Wii U Features All-New Attractions in Nintendo Land

Nintendo Land is a fun and lively theme park filled with 12 different attractions, each with its own take on a Nintendo franchise. Each attraction features unique and innovative game-play experiences made possible by the Wii U GamePad controller. Depending on the attraction, players can compete solo or against other players, or even team up to play cooperatively. Up to five players can participate in dynamic multiplayer modes in select attractions.* The experiences change every time, depending on whether players are using the GamePad, holding a Wii Remote or just watching others play on the TV screen.

Nintendo Land Features:

Donkey Kong's Crash Course: Using the GamePad's motion control, players tilt the controller to guide a fragile rolling cart through an obstacle course that resembles the original Donkey Kong arcade game. This single-player game lets other spectators watch the action on the TV and offer advice about how to pass the next obstacle.

Luigi's Ghost Mansion: The player with the GamePad is a ghost (invisible to others) who is trying to capture up to four humans armed with flashlights. The ghost must sneak around the environment by staying in the shadows and try to catch them one by one. The humans can work together to revive fallen comrades before the ghost catches everyone. If all four humans are caught before they are revived, the ghost wins. But if they are successful at shining their flashlights on the ghost long enough to reduce its hit points to zero, the humans win.

Animal Crossing™: Sweet Day: The player holding the Wii U GamePad controls two guards who are in charge of safeguarding a candy orchard from a group of candy-loving animals. Up to four other players, using the Wii Remote controllers to control these animals, must work together to outwit – and outrun – the guards. The game ends when a combined total of 50 pieces of candy are collected, or when the guards catch any one of the animals three times.

The Legend of Zelda™: Battle Quest: The player with the GamePad is an archer who can aim and shoot arrows using the screen as a view finder. That player is joined by up to three others who wield Wii Remote Plus controllers like swords. Players work together to take on a variety of enemies in a world that looks like a cloth version of a game from The Legend of Zelda series.

Takamaru's Ninja Castle: Based on an early Famicom game available only in Japan, this single-player game turns the GamePad into a launcher for ninja stars. Players swipe the controller's touch screen to take out an ever-growing army of ninja attackers, earning more points for consecutive hits. Moving the GamePad around at different angles enables the player to take aim in an intuitive fashion.

This Land is your land

Nintendo Land has a lot to live up to. Not only does its name invoke a fantastic, imaginary kingdom many of us would happily sail to sight-unseen, it's also the game poised to provide proof of the Wii U's concept, as Wii Sports did for the Wii back in...

Personally I think this should be bundled with the console if it isnt going to be.



Joshume said:

Yeah.You guys are right.This should be bundled,'cause it's like the WiiU version of Wii Sports.At least that's what I think.




CrimsonLoftwing said:

Truthfully, I'm looking forward to this game very much. I enjoy the idea of many of Nintendo's first-party iconic characters combined in one game with many attractions. I can't express to anyone how thrilled I am about the Animal Crossing: Sweet Day attraction, though. It's just so cute! :3

If what they say about this game being to the gamepad as wii sports was to the wii controller, this will probably be pretty spectacular!



Huiee123 said:

Hope this comes with the wii u as a pack if you want because i certainly will. If not i will still get it because its Nintendo.



Gamemaster26 said:

Bundle it with the Wii U, Nintendo !
Cm'on everybody here ! Make nintendo hear us !
Bundle ! Bundle !



Link-Rogers said:

Nintendo land looks pretty sweet but I don't exactly get what it's supposed to do. Are you supposed to have fun, or is it a game for family to play together?



Boyoshi said:

I'm getting this with my Wii U, looks pretty sweet but I don't want it to end up being like Wii sports (the original)



Varia01 said:

The minigames look neat on there. At least Metroid Blast will satisfy me while I wait for the next Metroid....



lizparr93 said:

It's a lot like Wii Play. There are mini games that teach you have to use the game pad and get you used to the new controls. I like like all of the games, but two or three really stand out. It should be bundled with both versions of the wii U, in my opinion. Great as party games.



Lyndexer said:

I love the Luigi's Mansion and Mario Chase. So much joy and laughing as well raging added into it for friends.
