Nintendo Announce New Details for NintendoLand
With the launch of Nintendo’s brand new console, the Wii U, on the horizon, the behemoth company have decided to release some new details on NintendoLand.
Basically, they have revealed three new games that you’ll be able to enjoy when the game launches with the console, on November 30. All the details, straight from the horses’s mouth, are below:
- Yoshi’s Fruit Cart: Using the GamePad touch screen and stylus, the player draws a path for the Yoshi Cart to follow through each course. However, only the view of the course displayed on the TV screen shows fruit that must be collected and obstacles that must be avoided along the way to the goal. This fun attraction is a great example of the kind of integrated second-screen gameplay made possible by Wii U and the GamePad controller.
- Captain Falcon’s Twister Race: In this single-player Attraction based on the F-Zero racing franchise, players get a top-down view of the track on the GamePad, which must be held vertically and turned to steer their vehicle through a winding, twisting track, trying to hit checkpoints before time runs out. Driving across dash plates can provide a quick burst of speed, while obstacles like speed spikes, whirlwinds, other vehicles and even bombs can make for a dangerous run.
- Octopus Dance: In this single-player attraction, players use the GamePad to mirror dance moves performed by a deep-sea dance instructor. The goal is to always be watching one’s own movements from the back to more easily mirror dance moves, but the dynamic interaction between the GamePad and the TV adds a unique twist. Players must be ready to switch between the views offered on the TV screen and the GamePad screen, as sometimes one view is more useful than the other.
Don’t forget, in Europe NintendoLand is a packed in with the Premium Wii U Bundle, you can also read our preview of the game by clicking here.
