The lights are on
Nintendo revealed details about the final three attractions in the Wii U launch title Nintendo Land. Below are the names and details for each per Nintendo:
- 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-Zero racing 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.
Previously announced attractions include: 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.

I want one even more!
I wasn't all that thrilled about Nintendo Land but the more I see of it the more I am looking forward to it. I got the Deluxe edition pre-ordered and paid for so it comes with my bundle. Nothing wrong with a bunch of well designed mini games that I can play with my friends, especially people like my wife who doesn't like "core" video games but likes fun ones.
cool. i wanna get wii u this november.
Show ya moves!
I think I'm the only one who doesn't like this
i just realized, the wii-u is basically just a 3ds that works on your tv and probably has better graphics O_o oh and it probably has more buttons
I'm in love with Mario. Always have been ! Mario just keeps getting better and better :)
Watching those videos is actually getting me excited about the Wii U. I might get it... at some point.
I loved the two attractions I played at Comic Con (Metroid Blast and Luigi's Ghost Mansion), so I'm glad I'm getting it as a pack-in with my Deluxe Wii U.
Whenever I get a Wii U this is on the list.
