Wii U: Final three Nintendo Land attractions revealed
Nintendo has detailed the remaining three attractions for Nintendo Land, the theme park-like title designed to teach users the basic functionality of Nintendo's new Wii U console.
Yoshi's Fruit Cart, Captain Falcon's Twister Racer, and Octopus Dance round out the 12 attractions/games that will be playable when Nintendo Land releases alongside the Wii U on November 18. Below are the full details for each activity.
- 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 game play made possible by Wii U and the GamePad controller.
- Captain Falcon’s Twister Race: In this single-player Attraction based on the F-Zeroracing franchise, players get a top-down view of the track on the GamePad, which is held vertically and turned to steer the vehicle through a winding, twisting track, as they try 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.
These three attractions join the already announced Mario Chase, Metroid Blast, Luigi’s Ghost Mansion, The Legend of Zelda: Battle Quest, Pikmin Adventure, Animal Crossing: Sweet Day, Donkey Kong’s Crash Course, Takamaru’s Ninja Castle and Balloon Trip Breeze to round out the 12 playable games.
