Final Nintendo Land Attractions Detailed – Includes Octopus Dancing

The final Nintendo Land attractions/mini-games have been detailed by Nintendo, a month before the Wii U’s UK launch.

The first is Yoshi’s Fruit Cart. This sees you using the GamePad touch screen and stylus to draw 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. Sounds tricky if you’re useless as those electricity wire games found at fetes.

Next up is Captain Falcon’s Twister Race. This is a single-player only mode based on the F-Zero racing franchise. Here you get a top-down view of the track on the GamePad, which must be held vertically and turned to steer your vehicle through a track, hitting checkpoints along the way before time runs out. To spice things up there are dash plates which speed you up, while obstacles like speed spikes, whirlwinds, other vehicles do their best to hold you up.

The final attraction is the odd sounding Octopus Dance. This is another single-player attraction, where you use the GamePad to mirror dance moves performed by a octopus. Very strange.
