Final three Nintendo Land attractions detailed


Nintendo have revealed the final three attractions that you'll be able to visit/take part in for the Wii U launch title, Nintendo Land.


The final three are Yoshi's Fruit Cart, Captain Falcon's Twister Race and finally Octopus Dance. The official synopsis for all three 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 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.

Nintendo Land launches November 30th alongside the Nintendo Wii U. If you've preordered the Premium Pack, Nintendo Land is bundled within.

Am I right in thinking this will be Nintendo's new Wii Sports style fanchise?

You'd be correct in thinking that. Pretty sure that brings the total number of events/mini games to 12 now, all being based on and featuring Nintendo characters.

well at least they're doing something slightly different. I wonder though if this will spell the end of Mario Party games as it seems like it's in kind of along the same lines as that.

I am honestly astonished that Nintendo are charging full price for something like this. This should be free with every console.

It comes with the premium pack which I think most people will opt for given it comes with the larger storage and Nintendo Premium (which i'm sure no one cares about really).

12 games for the price of one sounds pretty reasonable to me, and you can't really judge how good or bad a value the package is without playing the games. If they are all good fun games than that's pretty good value really.

It comes free with the premium version. And the Wii U itself is being sold at a loss so.... Only sucks if you want Zombiu AND this since either way it'll work out more expensive. But hey. it's ranging around £40. 12 games. That averages out at less than £4 per game. Even if you get an hour out of each game it's still more value for money than some other games at that price range.

They don't sound like anything great to me, but I expect that in practice the interaction with the gamepad will be a lot more fun than they make it sound in the descriptions.

Hey, at least it's awknowledging F-Zero outside of Smash Bros. That alone can give people hype for a new one.

I'm really hoping for a new F-Zero this generation, the last one was brilliant, but it's been far too long.

Much prefer this as an extra game than Wii Sports. Granted you have to get the premium Wii U for it but still, alot better than Wii Sports
