All new adventures in familiar places in Nintendo Land
The launch of Wii U on November 30th brought with it some exciting new launch day titles for gamers of all kinds to enjoy. But for die hard Nintendo fans, the wonderful worlds on offer in Nintendo Land will surely have caused some serious excitement.
The game, which is available separately as well as with the 32GB Wii U Premium Pack, takes gamers on a trip through 12 different attractions in a Nintendo-themed park. This means loads of familiar landscapes from games like Super Mario Bros., Legend of Zelda, Donkey Kong Country, Metroid, Animal Crossing and many more. However, each of these mini-games comes with all-new challenges for you to enjoy – made all the more exciting thanks to their innovative interaction with the Wii U GamePad!
For fans of space action, Metroid Blast offers some fantastic co-operative and versus-multiplayer modes that lets gamers take on different roles and use the Wii U GamePad, Wii Remote or Nunchuk to take down your opponents. There’s more multiplayer mayhem to enjoy too with attractions like The Legend of Zelda: Battle Quest where you can explore the world of Link and take on nine thrilling quests on your own or with friends, before unlocking more levels later.
If you happen to be a fan of Mario games in particular, then you’ll probably want to check out the various mini-games that take place within the realm of the Mushroom Kingdom. In Mario Chase, for example, you’ll need to play it smart if you want to avoid your pursuing opponents, while in Luigi’s Ghost Mansion you’ll go on the attack to take down the paranormal. You can also help out Yoshi in Yoshi’s Fruit Cart, where you’ll need to accurately use your GamePad to guide your load through a series of tricky terrains.
Other places to play and explore include Pikmin Adventure, Takamaru's Ninja Castle, Donkey Kong Crash Course, Animal Crossing: Sweet Day, Balloon Trip Breeze, Captain Falcon’s Twister Race and Octopus Dance. Each of the mini-games offers something very different from the next and all are suitable for solo play or gaming with friends and family members.
Wii U was launched across Europe on November 30th 2012 and follows a number of new releases that could prove popular this Christmas. This includes the latest in the series of Professor Layton games for Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 3DS XL, entitled Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask.
