You know, until today, I wasn’t convinced that Nintendo Land would be a great purchase. After seeing Metroid Blast, I have to change my mind. Nintendo Land is shaping up to be a worthwhile Nintendo game to pick up at launch. However, you can also just buy the Wii U Deluxe Set and get Nintendo Land bundled in with the console.

Nintendo Land’s attractions are separated into three groups: Competitive, Solo, and Team. This will no doubt offer up a lot of variety on the disc, and some serious fun multiplayer gameplay. Which Nintendo Land game are you most excited for?

Competitive Attractions
  • Animal Crossing Sweet Day
  • Luigi’s Ghost Mansion
  • Mario Chase
Solo Attractions
  • Takamaru’s Ninja Castle
  • Donkey Kong’s Crash Course
  • Balloon Trip Breeze
Team Attractions
  • The Legend of Zelda: Battle Quest
  • Metroid Blast
  • Pikmin Adventure

A new Nintendo Land trailer has blown in from Game Informer, and it showcases one of two newly confirmed attractions, Balloon Trip Breeze.

Balloon Trip Breeze looks very familiar, and so it should, it is based on the Balloon Trip game from the Balloon Fight NES cartridge. Players are challenged to navigate dangerous courses filled with electricity, gigantic fish, and a variety of other obstacles. Along the way you will be expected to pop balloons and other obstacles to garner a higher score, and to ensure survival. Read more

Two New Nintendo Land Attractions Revealed

The latest issue of Game Informer is not lacking Wii U news. One of the bigger stories to come from the magazine is the revelation of two new Nintendo Land events.

One of these events was previously revealed in the form of Battle Mii. As many gamers have already guessed, Battle Mii was a template for some sort of Metroid mini-game. And that would be a correct guess, as Battle Mii is now known as Metroid Blast. Metroid Blast allows one player to control Samus’ ship with the Wii U GamePad, while four other players can don Samus’ armor to try and defeat the ship with the Wii Remote + Nunchuck combination. Free-for-all, team death match, and a horde-like mode await Metroid fans in Nintendo Land. Read more
