Nintendo Land’s F-Zero And Yoshi Games Revealed

Nintendo have shared early details of the last three games that will be included in Nintendo Land, the company’s upcoming Wii U game that features different games based on Nintendo characters that you select from a virtual theme park-style setting. Up above is “The Legend of Zelda: Battle Quest”.


The three final games are: Yoshi’s Fruit Cart, Captain Falcon’s Twister Race (based on F-Zero), and Octopus Dance, all of which were revealed last month. Details from Nintendo follow:


  • Yoshi’s Fruit Cart: Using the GamePad touch screen and stylus, the player draws 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. This fun attraction is a great example of the kind of integrated second-screen game play made possible by Wii U and the GamePad controller.


  • Captain Falcon’s Twister Race: In this single-player Attraction based on the F-Zeroracing franchise, players get a top-down view of the track on the GamePad, which is held vertically and turned to steer the vehicle through a winding, twisting track, as they try to hit checkpoints before time runs out. Driving across dash plates can provide a quick burst of speed, while obstacles like speed spikes, whirlwinds, other vehicles and even bombs can make for a dangerous run.


  • Octopus Dance: In this single-player Attraction, players use the GamePad to mirror dance moves performed by a deep-sea dance instructor. The goal is to always be watching one’s own movements from the back to more easily mirror dance moves, but the dynamic interaction between the GamePad and the TV adds a unique twist. Players must be ready to switch between the views offered on the TV screen and the GamePad screen, as sometimes one view is more useful than the other.


The other attractions revealed for Nintendo Land prior to this include: Mario Chase, Metroid Blast, Luigi’s Ghost Mansion, The Legend of Zelda: Battle Quest, Pikmin Adventure, Animal Crossing: Sweet Day, Donkey Kong’s Crash Course, Takamaru’s Ninja Castle, and Balloon Trip Breeze.

    Ah, another acknowledgement that F-Zero exists.

    Twister Race should’ve been about you facing off against Captain Falcon in Twister so you could “show him yo moves”.

    In any case, I’m looking forward to trying this out. I wanna see more footage of Octopus Dance to see how much was borrowed from the original G&W game.

    Oh, I misread the title thinking it was an F-Zero WiiU game…
    Well this is the next best thing I suppose.
