Nintendo Co. this week announced Nintendo Land for the Wii hardware.
The theme park title will include 12 different attractions, including The Legend of Zelda Battle Quest, Luigi’s Ghost Mansion, Donkey Kong’s Crash Course, and Takumara’s Ninja Castle.
The title is said to demonstrate all the unique uses of the Wii U GamePad.
For example, Luigi’s Ghost Mansion will allow one user to take the Wii U GamePad to act as a ghost to attack four other users who utilize Wii Remotes to control their characters armed with flashlights.
The title will include Miiverse functionality to allow users to interact with online players at the theme park.
It will be sold at launch.
The Wii U will be released in 2012.
The Wii U GamePad allows users to transfer gameplay to the controller screen, or use the added screen to relay menu items.
It includes a 6.2-inch, 16:9 touch screen that allows users to transfer gameplay to the controller screen, or use the added screen to relay menu items.
Additionally features include Wii U controller web browsing and video call chat.
The hardware will be fully backwards compatible with the Wii.
Finally, the hardware will include a social component called Miiverse to allow users to chat and view the status of other players.
