Three Nintendo Land Attractions Revealed

Posted on October 29, 2012 at 11:55 am by Justin Cavender

Today, Nintendo released information regarding the final three Nintendo Land Attractions. Nintendo Land allows gamers to explore a virtual theme park made up of 12 Attractions based on fan-favorite Nintendo game worlds. These 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.

New Attractions

  • 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.
  • 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.

Nintendo Land will be packaged with the Wii U Deluxe Set available November 18. However, the game will also be sold separately with a suggested retail price of $59.99 in stores and at Nintendo’s eShop.

So are you excited about the new Attractions? @Snackie_Cakes will have to tell us all about it when he picks up his Deluxe Set on November 18.

You can follow Justin on Twitter @Edgyarmo but be sure to keep your arms and legs inside the vehicle at all times.

      I put some of those rides together myself. Lots of extra parts for some reason. I got this bucket O' bolts just sitting here.
