Nintendo Co. this week demonstrated Nintendo Land for the Wii U at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles.
In the video, users swipe the Wii U GamePad touchscreen to throw ninja stars at cardboard cutout ninja enemies.
Takamaru’s Ninja Castle, an attraction in the final game, allow users hold the Wii U GamePad with one hand and swipe ninja stars towards the screen to knock down ninja enemies that pop out from various locations.
Control was accurate with users required to point and aim the controller at ninja followed by a swipe. The quickness of the swipe will determine how fast the ninja stars fly toward enemies.
The title is a surprising challenge, with some ninja peering from a distance to require quickness and accuracy.
The graphics engine held at 60 frames-per-second with flat-shaded ninja, bright colors, and high-definition graphics.
Nintendo Land 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.
The final game 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.
