New Nintendo Land details revealed

20121020-232913.jpg

Gaming publication Official Nintendo Magazine has revealed some interesting new details about four attractions from Wii U’s first party launch title and deluxe package bundle game, Nintendo Land. You can learn more about Balloon Trip Breeze, Metroid Blast, Mario Chase, and Pikmin Adventure below!

Balloon Trip Breeze

Hero carries parcels between islands

Delivering the parcels rewards you with currency to spend in the theme park.

You can tap away certain obstacles on the gamepad but random prods (cheating) will cause the spikes to ricochet.

Metroid Blast

Shooting doesn’t use the sensor to aim, but the MotionPlus (ala Skyward Sword).

Gunmen boast Samus’ full moveset – morph ball, charge shots, evasive dodges and grapple beams – can use the latter to hang from the gunship.

Mario Chase

In the Mud River Run stage, mud moats can be crossed via bridges that dissolve under the escapee’s feet.

At the end of the round, you get a breakdown of everyone’s movement.

Pikmin Adventure

Pikmin world re-imagined as clockwork Gashapon toys.

Enemies arrive in plastic capsules, dispatched by a giant vending machine.

When a Pikmin is eaten by an enemy, they emerge as Poo (!) Friends must then help to chip them out.
