Key Game Features
- 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 obstacle course.
- 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 special challenges.

I have to say this game gets alot more fun the more people you add into the mix, some of the singleplayer games are fun but some are lacking. Some multiplayer games I played with another person and we enjoyed ourselves but it wasnt till we had 3+ people we started to have a blast! Each mini game is themed around a Nintendo Franchise, some are even similar to that franchise in terms of gameplay as well. Zelda, Metroid and Pikmin are 3 games that you can play cooperatively and each of them feel like their respected franchises and are a blast to play!
You can become a star player for certain attractions if you play enough or beat all the levels or missions of certain games. On top of that you can earn trophies from bronze to platinum and certain games you can "Master" levels by completing certain tasks. All of these things add to the replayability of the game.
Honestly this game should be a pack in with all Wii U systems Deluxe or not, Wii U needs a pack in like Wii Sports and if anything this game is just that in terms of how the game shows off the systems unique features.
He loves it! I played a few of the games this evening and it was pretty fun!
There are a lot of different games to choose from.
My only 'con' would be that a lot of them are 2+ player games. Since he is often playing by himself, he had to wait for someone to be free long enough to be able to play those specific games.
I would recommend this for any Nintendo lover.
Nintendo Land is an awesome game where you play as your mii in a virtual theme park full of attractions based on Nintendo's greatest games. There are three categories for the attractions: theme attractions, competitive attractions, and solo attractions. For completing the attractions you earn coins that can be used to play a minigame. When you complete a level in the coin minigame you win a random prize that appears in the plaza as decoration.
There are twelve attractions total: Legend of Zelda Battle Quest, Metroid Blast, Pikmin Adventures, Animal Crossing Sweet Day, Mario Chase, Luiigi's Mansion, Takamuru's Ninja Castle, Captain Falcon's Twister Race, Balloon Trip Breeze, Donkey Kong's Crash Course, Octopus Dance, and Yashi's Fruit Cart. The attractions are different than the games they are based on, although some are similar.
The various games are quite fun; I'm sure other reviews have already described each in detail, so I will give some highlights from my first couple weeks of playing:
--Luigi's Ghost Mansion: the player with the Wii U gamepad is the ghost, and the other players can't see the ghost on the TV most of the time. The first time reactions to a player suddenly being caught by the unseen ghost player are priceless.
--Mario Chase: the player running away has the gamepad advantage and can see the map, while the other players chasing him cannot see the map or the player unless they actually find him (no screen-watching!). An instant-replay on the top down map is as funny as playing, as you watch everyone's paths, near-misses, or hilarious take-downs.
--Ninja Castle: awesome music and setting. It boils down to an arcade shooting gallery with cardboard bad guys, but you can control the strength of your (ninja blade) shot by the flick of your finger on the gamepad.
--Legend of Zelda Battle Quest: the player with the gamepad gives cover to the swordsmen with arrows. Once the archer gets the hang of it, there are many "all-right!!!" moments. Encountering a new tune here and there from the Zelda repertoire is just great and I keep playing partly to hear the next one.
--Yoshi's Fruit Adventure: a brand new addictive puzzle game great for hand, eye, brain coordination. Yoshi fans will love the cute setting, and I just can't get over how new yet obvious it feels.
--Metroid: the players on foot will enjoy watching the pilot get used to the flight controls with the Wii U gamepad, but once they do...! Excellent mix of shooting action; players on foot use Wii remotes and nunchuks to walk around and aim, with several of Samus' abilities. Even the grapple beam--which can even attach to the gunship!
Too many surprises and laugh out loud moments to list here. This is great fun with friends and family (and my wife and I have played with both!).
