Another commercial from Nintendo’s advertising campaign for the Wii U, and this time it’s for Nintendo Land. One thing’s for sure, this song is really starting to grow on me.
Nintendo has released the names of all 12 Nintendo Land attractions. Nine of them we already know, but there are three new names to throw into the mix. Octopus Dance, Yoshi’s Fruit Cart and Captain Falcon’s Twister Race are the last three attractions to be named.
