Nintendo Land is a fun and lively virtual theme park filled with
attractions based on popular Nintendo game worlds. Each attraction
features unique and innovative game-play experiences made possible by
the Wii U GamePad controller. Depending on the attraction, players can
play solo, compete against other players, or even team up to play
cooperatively. Up to five players can participate in dynamic multiplayer
modes in select attractions.* The experiences change depending on
whether players are using the GamePad, a Wii Remote controller or just
watching others play on the TV screen.
Nintendo Land features fun-filled theme park attractions based on
Nintendo’s greatest game worlds, including Mario Chase, The Legend of
Zelda: Battle Quest, Pikmin Adventure and more. There are 12
attractions in all.
Different activities take advantage of the second screen of the new
Wii U GamePad controller in different ways. For example, simply slide
a finger across the touch screen to seamlessly fire ninja stars in the
action-based Takamaru’s Ninja Castle. In Donkey Kong’s Crash Course,
tilt the GamePad left and right to safely navigate an elaborate
Dynamic multiplayer that offers different experiences in the same
game. Even in the same attraction, the player using the GamePad will
have a completely different experience than players using the TV: In
Luigi’s Ghost Mansion, the player using the GamePad is able to control
a ghost invisible to players using the TV. In Metroid Blast, the
player with the GamePad controls an aerial gunship versus the
ground-based players using the TV.
The attractions are easy to pick up and play, but also contains deeper
levels of play that are sure to challenge even the most experienced
gamers. Metroid Blast, for example, contains a deep mission mode as
well as a competitive surface-air combat mode.
Attractions are grouped into three types: ○ Team Attractions like
Metroid Blast and The Legend of Zelda: Battle Quest that offer depth
and challenge for 1 to 5 players. ○ Competitive Attractions like Mario
Chase and Animal Crossing: Sweet Day where 2 to 5 players compete
against each other. ○ Solo Attractions like Takamaru’s Ninja Castle,
Donkey Kong’s Crash Course and Balloon Trip Breeze, that offer simple
but fun and engaging play for one player.
Each attraction has multiple fun challenges designed to keep visitors
coming back for more. Players will receive stamps upon completing
