Nintendo Land is a fun and lively theme park filled with 12 different attractions, each with its own take on a Nintendo franchise. Each attraction features unique and innovative game-play experiences made possible by the Wii U GamePad controller. Depending on the attraction, players can compete solo or 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 every time, depending on whether players are using the GamePad, holding a Wii Remote or just watching others play on the TV screen.

  • Please Note: Nintendo Wii U titles are not compatible with standard Wii consoles
  • Donkey Kong's Crash Course: Using the GamePad's motion control, players tilt the controller to guide a fragile rolling cart through an obstacle course that resembles the original Donkey Kong arcade game. This single-player game lets other spectators watch the action on the TV and offer advice about how to pass the next obstacle.
  • Luigi's Ghost Mansion: The player with the GamePad is a ghost (invisible to others) who is trying to capture up to four humans armed with flashlights. The ghost must sneak around the environment by staying in the shadows and try to catch them one by one. The humans can work together to revive fallen comrades before the ghost catches everyone. If all four humans are caught before they are revived, the ghost wins. But if they are successful at shining their flashlights on the ghost long enough to reduce its hit points to zero, the humans win.
  • Animal Crossing: Sweet Day: The player holding the Wii U GamePad controls two guards who are in charge of safeguarding a candy orchard from a group of candy-loving animals. Up to four other players, using the Wii Remote controllers to control these animals, must work together to outwit - and outrun - the guards. The game ends when a combined total of 50 pieces of candy are collected, or when the guards catch any one of the animals three times.
  • The Legend of Zelda: Battle Quest: The player with the GamePad is an archer who can aim and shoot arrows using the screen as a view finder. That player is joined by up to three others who wield Wii Remote Plus controllers like swords. Players work together to take on a variety of enemies in a world that looks like a cloth version of a game from The Legend of Zelda series.
  • Takamaru's Ninja Castle: Based on an early Famicom game available only in Japan, this single-player game turns the GamePad into a launcher for ninja stars. Players swipe the controller's touch screen to take out an ever-growing army of ninja attackers, earning more points for consecutive hits. Moving the GamePad around at different angles enables the player to take aim in an intuitive fashion.

There are 12 unique games for you to enjoy with your friends and family or by yourself which are as follows.

1. The Legend Of Zelda: Battle Quest (1 to 4 players) - This is great team player game where the person using the Wii U Gamepad is a archery and the Wii Remote players get to use a sword. There are lots of enemies that need to be defeated in your quest to find the Triforce.
2. Pikmin Adventure (1 to 5 players) - You get to control Olimar or a large Pikmin. There are lots blocks for you to throw and smash. Even more enemies which come in all shapes and sizes. Will you overcome the mad onslaught and make it back to your spaceship safely.
3. Metroid Blast (1 to 5 players) - At the moment this is my favourite mode on Nintendo Land. The person with the Wii U game pad gets to control Samus's flying Gunship and other players are on foot. There is a futuristic city for you to hunt eachother down on.
4. Mario Chase (2 to 5 players) Mario has to outrun and outsmart his pursuers over a set time.
5. Luigi's Ghost Mansion (2 to 5 players) - The person with Wii U GamePad controls a ghost whilst the other players hunt him with flash lights.
6. Animal Crossing: Sweet Day (2 to 5 players) - The person with the Wii U gamepad is a village guard whom must stop all the oher players, whom are cute animals from getting the sweets.
7. Yoshi's Fruit Cart (1 player) - My seven year old daughter enjoys this mode the most. You must draw a route to pick up all the fruit and then go for the exit. If you don't pick up all the fruit then the exit door will not open.
8. Octopus Dance (1 player) - You must follow the instructor's lead with the Wii U gamepad and dance to the rhythm of the beat or the octopus will sweep you off your feet!
9. Donkey Kong's Crash Course (1 player) - You will have great fun guiding a cart through a crazy course full of different hazards with the Wii U GamePad.
10. Takamaru's Ninja Castle (1 player) - I loved the Wii U GamePad controls for this game as you throw ninja stars at loads of ninjas. You hold the Gamepad sideways and point it towards the tv and slide the stylus upwards to throw a ninja star.
11. Captain Falcon's Twister Race (1 player) This is excellent racing fun and is hopefully a good sign that the Wii U will have a full on F-Zero game in the future which would be mind blowing.
12. Balloon Trip Breeze (1 player) - Emark on a scenic but risky journey across the sea with only a couple of balloons to keep you aloft. Dodge the obstacles and see how far you can sail the currents.

There are other cool things to do in Nintendo Land. At the top of Central Tower you get play a coin game with coins you have won from playing the other games. If your coins hit all the holes then you win a wacky prize. The Tour Train takes you around to see all the many attractions. If you have your Wii U connected to the internet then other Mii charcters will visit you from around the world , which you can talk to as well.

 This is a MUST buy!

If you haven't got this game you must must MUST buy it! It's like wii sports in terms of showcasing what the Wii U can do but so much better! I ordered 6 games for Xmas and this is the one that gets played the most! You will not be disappointed :0) I can't really say much more than that as there is already a super comprehensive review already done!
