Nintendo has released a ton of new Nintendo Land Wii U screenshots, showing off the dozen minigames. Nintendo Land will be a Wii U launch title and will also be included in the Wii U Deluxe set. The Deluxe set includes a bunch of accessories, increased flash storage to 32 GB, and as mentioned, a copy of Nintendo Land. The game will include 12 mini games which will feature many famous Nintendo franchises, including Zelda, Metroid, Pikmin, Mario, and even Animal Crossing. The game will support local multiplayer with up to 5 players at the same time. Check out the new screenshots below.

    this looks realy good i am shocked

    • Master of Awesomeness

      Ok, this means war against my sister, just so I can prove the awesomeness of me and my gamepad! The gamepad is mine, and mine only. She would love to play these games with me, until she realises that she cannot beat me still. I might have to let her win just so I can have someone to play with.

      That’s what sucks about little sisters, you have to let them win every once and a while, just so they keep playing. With these games though, I think everything will be awesome (like me) because these screenshots make me want to say… Give me a Wii U! Because MY BODY, WALLET AND AWESOMENESS IS READY TO TAKE ON THE WII U AND THE WORLD!

      • Mida

        Ok, this means you shouldn’t leech off of the first post just so people could see your comment…

      • Lord Carlisle

        I tried out Rayman Legends as a demo today, and the gamepad was AWESOME. But my Xbox brother told me it looked exactly like a DS with analog sticks, and proclaimed that was all it was. A DS with analog sticks.

        Honestly, I think he was impressed, he just has to scratch and claw at Nintendo.

        • Roedburn

          I got to play the demo recently too. I got done, turned around and there was the Xbox demo station. It really hit for the first time how ugly the Xbox 360 graphics are compared to the Wii U.

        • frank (3dsFC=5155-3120-0417)

          Okay, just here me out. While you are playing single-player with the wii u, it is pretty much is a highly advanced ds, with better graphics and more processing power. However, once you start playing multiplayer, having the second assymetric screen really comes in handy. So while I believe that, at times, the system may appear as a ds of some kind, the major selling point for me will be local multiplayer.

          • Lord Carlisle

            You can’t even call it a DS. I mean, seriously. What makes it similar? The D-Pad, Screen, and ABYX buttons. Well, EVERY console controller in this generation has the ABYX buttons and D-pads… the only reason to compare it is the screen, which doesn’t seem altogether fair.

      • Zeldazero

        Don’t feel bad, it is the same with spouses. If you don’t let them win once in a while or sometimes more, they won’t want to play at all. What makes it worse is because they “win” they brag to all of your friends that they beat you 😛 Either way my body is ready 🙂 I have this game, darksiders 2, ninja gaiden 3, zombiu, mario bros u, and a pro controller waiting for me at launch. Unfortunately my local Gamestop said they most likely not have a midnight release 🙁 I asked them how many Wii U presales they had and I was dumbfounded. They said they only got 22 presales before they were told to stop selling…I think that is kind of sad that they don’t think they will have enough stock to fill more than that…

      • lakersfan

        I have a little sister too. That’s also why I’m definitely getting a screen protecter.

    • PACMAN

      I don’t understand there’s plenty of video of this stuff that could be changed to a photo so why do they get this from nintendo. I’m just asking I’m not angry or anything.

  • Lazara the Last

    Glad i’m getting this game ;D

    • lakersfan

      Me too! This will probably be the only game I get in 2012 (w/ my deluxe console). I got Skyward Sword for Christmas last year but that was about the time my wii (it was an old one) stopped reading most discs. I’m gonna be playing that until I beat it and then stick in some Nintendo Land when my friends come over. Looks like a BLAST w/ local multiplayer.

  • Mida

    F-Zero will be my first event

    • Herox95

      Zelda Battle Quest will be my first event!

      • WarioForever

        Luigi’s Mansion will be my first event!!!

        • The Island Of Misfit Toys

          Balloon fight will be my first event. I have no friends to play the other ones 🙁

  • Shad79

    So this game will be available to download on the eShop, am I correct?

    • CRT_hater777


    • nintendofreak

      ok dis is most stupidest question or the smartest question i have heard

    • lakersfan

      It’s a packing game with the deluxe console bundle. You can buy it seperately too though.

      • Crapcake

        yea you can download nsmbu and nintendo land on the eshop but eshop prices are a ripoff because they charge you 49.99 USD but at gamestop or walmart you could get it for 49.96 USD

        • Crapcake

          im talking about nsmb2

          • Lord Carlisle

            Wrong, I believe they are in the 60 dollar range… and three cents extra is not a rip-off.

        • PACMAN

          ooohhhh big whoop 3 cents more. I’m gonna die of lack of money!!

          • Crapcake

            you dont value money its hard earned 3 cents btw im not poor

        • Chris

          So you are trying to say that Sony’s PSN isn’t a rip off?


          Instore BF3 Costed about £35 on launch

          Online on the PSN it costed about £50 and it still does

          Now that is a rip off, as a matter of fact Nintendo actually makes the games a lot cheaper than in the stores

          • Crapcake

            i didnt say anything about psn

  • Shad79

    Definitely gonna play this one for days!
    I’m gonna be looking for easter eggs. 😉

  • rob lucci

    The F-Zero one looks so cute, and i dont say “cute” too often.

  • Mario Action Figure

    there are still pre-orders at my Wal-Mart

    • LyingTuna

      Looks like Non-Specific Action Figure (puts on sunglasses) just got specified.

  • Wii U

    Your silly

    • Michael


  • Madmagican

    THAT’S A LOT OF SCREENSHOTS!!! …looks great though; I can’t wait!

  • Gamechemist8

    Why have I not been by BestBuy to try the demo…?
    Btw these look really nice and I can’t wait to have it in my house.

    • Falcon

      Probably because the demo units at Best Buy only have the Rayman Legends demo. :/ *which was awesome by the way*

    • Zeldazero

      Don’t worry, I have been to my best buy 4 times and they still don’t have a demo and my gamestop said they weren’t even going to get one….I love Nintendo but I really feel they might be dropping the ball on getting the hype out on the Wii U. Not eveyone keeps up on this kind of stuff on the internet and other than a cardboard cutout and a few game box displays I haven’t seen much real world advertising…

  • SmashballZ

    Fun game I guess.. Hahah but I’m still going to play it when I get the Deluxe, the Metroid mini game looks fun though 😀

  • Cugno the Swiss

    Hey guys, I’m just asking… What ports would you like to see on the Wii U?
    Here is my wish list:

    – Tales of Graces (it was originally on the Wii)
    – Ni No Kuni (the PS3 version)
    – Tales of Xillia 1+2
    and I wouldn’t mind seeing Watch Dogs!

    • Shad79

      Watch Dogs +1

      • Shad79

        And also MGS: Revengeance! I played the demo the other day, and the controls were very solid.
        It’s possible, I mean, Platinum Games developed it. 🙂

        • Cugno the Swiss

          I wouldn’t mind to see MGS ground zeroes aswell!

    • AM

      Mine are:

      -Sonic Generations
      -Sonic 4 Ep2
      -Final Fantasy XIII
      -Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2
      -Street Fighter X Tekken

      • Cugno the Swiss

        Lords of Shadows 2 would be great!

    • NoPUNintendo

      Not really wanting to see ports on the Wii U. I’m waiting mostly for developers to produce games based around the Wii Us’ full capablilites.

      • Cugno the Swiss

        Same, but games aren’t that easy to make, so there’s nothing bad in some ports while we wait.

    • [000]

      Watch Dogs FTW!

    • LazerK

      PORTAL 1 AND 2!

    • LyingTuna

      I want a Sonic Generations port… But with more levels. My only gripe with that game… Yes, my only gripe, is the lack of levels. There are so few of them! Otherwise, it was perfect!

    • MasterSwordsman

      Kingdom Hearts!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Roedburn

        Kingdom Hearts: Remembrance. Five Kingdom Hearts titles remastered in glorious HD, to be released on PS3, Vita and Wii U. Just in case you didn’t already.

        Oh and the titles include 1, 2, Chain of Memories, 358/2 days, and Birth by Sleep.

    • Zeldazero

      Every Dragon Quest game they remade for the DS!!!

      • Roedburn

        Are you excited for Dragon Quest X?

  • CRT_hater777

    What’s that, last one?

    • Grodus

      Pikmin Adventure Land.

    • lakersfan

      Pikmin I think. I’m guessing you push the ? boxes on the squares to get more fruit.

  • Nintenjoe

    I’m so close to being so happy

  • u mad bro FC: 0559-7101-5495

    Nintendo Land will keep me company for at least a month or two. By then I would purchase Zombi U and or Black ops 2.

  • u mad bro FC: 0559-7101-5495

    …oh yeah and Happy Halloween to everyone at WiiU daily and hope that Michael Pachter doesn’t show up for a midnight spook.

  • nintendofreak

    me play legend of zelda battle quest all d f@#$%&! day!

  • NintendoMan :D

    Wow, thats a lot of screenshots! Well, more like GamePad and TV shots! This game looks awesome though, glad I got the Deluxe Set. 😀

  • LibertyZero

    Looks cool, but I probably won’t get it.

  • NoPUNintendo

    Very awesome pictures, I can’t wait to give this a try. I got something so furiously mad to say though. At Gamestop, there I was, buying Uncharted Golden Abyss for my PSVita. And this guy was talking to the manager and he asked the manager, “So, how much storage will the Wii U come in? How many megabytes will it be avaliable in?” She replied with the worst type of answer I can picture. “Well you see it doesn’t come with a harddrive. It has built in flash memory(ok that didn’t bother me, it was this part up ahead) but they won’t call it megabytes or gigabytes. The Wii U is a kid console so they will call it blocks instead because children do not understand how megabytes work.” Ironically, however, right beside her was the promotional box for the Wii U.

    • Lord Carlisle

      OOH, that gets ME angry. Geez.

      My 12-year-old cousin refers to Nintendo as being “kiddy”. And he is the typical COD trash talker who calls everything “gay”. Really.

      Anyhoo, I showed off the Wii U, and he said, “too bad it doesn’t have Xbox graphics.” Yes. It does. Better, even. I hate that attitude.

      • AM

        Show him COD: BO II, Assassins Creed III, Mass Effect 3, and Batman Arkham City Armoured Edition running (beautifully) on the Wii U, enjoy watching him make excuses, and then as a final blow show him ZombiU.

      • NoPUNintendo

        You should tell him, that he is right the Wii U doesn’t have Xbox graphics, because it’s way better than the Xbox. One thing I really wish now is that parents didn’t let their kids play video games til they got older, and if they do, at least let them play older games from the 80s or 90s. Only then would kids have a deeper understanding of video games.

    • AM

      LOL, do not worry, a lot of these Gamestop and EB Games people do not know a lot about technology or video games (strangely enough). I asked one of them about a Wii accessory being compatible with Wii U, and she told me that the Wii U is not compatible with Wii accessories because it is portable console (I naturally tried to hold back my laughter). As for the blocks thing, blocks are another universal standard for measuring data storage, especially used to report NAND Storage sizes, but Nintendo has told us how many Gigabytes of storage and Blocks of storage the Wii U has, so this shows you how uninformed these EB Games and Gamestop people are (at least they are better than Walmart who when I asked about a PS Vita were about to sell me a PSP 3000).

      • NoPUNintendo

        So true. It still ticks me off to hear “portable console”.
        Oh you’re so right about your first sentence.
        Over the summer I didn’t have internet, didn’t want to pay the bills at that time. But anyways, I asked about the gameplay for Lollipop Chainsaw, the day before it came out, to some 18 or 19 year old kid working at Gamestop. This is what he said “Oh man I don’t know I only play Call of Duty.”. Like seriously they hire these people. One question on the job app is “How much knowledge of video games do you know, and how many consoles do you have?” It appears they only hire the idiotic ones.

  • Linskarmo (3DS FC: 5284-2360-9145)

    I love the cloth/mechanical art styles that are in several of the mini games, and the graphics look quite crisp to me. I’m definitely getting this game!

  • KalebTaylorX

    I have to wait till christmas to get the Wii U. It doesn’t bother me much because I can look on YT & see if it’s good then make my decision.

    • Great Aether

      Same here. I layawayed the deluxe at Walmart and I have to wait until christmas. I’m so glad this game comes with it!

    • Linskarmo (3DS FC: 5284-2360-9145)

      Me too. At least the reviews can be checked because of the delay. Of course I have faith in the Wii U, but I’ll buy the games with great reviews.

  • metroidfusion2



    I am gonna be very honest here. I think this game will be very fun, and I can’t wait to try all of the games, and this game will be great along side friends and fam for sure. Just like Wii Sports and Wii Play are. That being side, I have said this since I heard about this game. I think it should’ve been added to the U system on launch on both versions. I honestly don’t think this game is worth $60, just like I wouldn’t have bought Wii Play with out the added Wii-mote when the Wii came out.

    I do think it will be a great starter game for the console but you can’t compare this game with SMBU, or Pikman 3, or ZombiU, etc. Several other brand new games to the U are less in price, like Transformers Prime for $50, Sonic All-stars $40, and Family Party is $30, and more. I’m just saying full price for Nintendoland isn’t fair, unless you consider the fact that it has most of the Nintendo classic characters in it, and most fans would buy it at that price alone…

  • Wii U Psycho97

    Heres my port games i hope come on the Wii U.

    -Mass Effects 1 & 2
    -Star Wars 1313

    and here are some Nintendo games that i hope comeout on Wii U.

    -Mario Baseball Wii U.
    -Mario Golf Wii U.
    -Mario Tennis Wii U.
    -Mario Sports Mix 2.
    -Mario Party 10.
    -Super Mario Sunshine 2, but probably not likely. 🙁
    -Donkey Kong Country Returns 2.
    -Paper Mario Wii U.

  • mark poulin

    is there any single-play games coming for wii-u

    • Superstick

      What are you talking about? Every game is single play and some are multiplayer.

  • Superstick

    Cool. I’m glad this comes with my deluxe set.

  • srpg2ishere

    I can’t wait to see this game on my tv this christmas!

  • superstick

    Can’t wait to play with my mii

  • Maverick-Hunter

    The metroid section of nintendoland alone was enough to convince me that the wii u is better than ps3 and 360 I can’t wait to get one 🙂

  • Kirbymon123

    OOOHHHH I just realized why kirby isn’t in nintendo land! He’s owned by HAL Laboratory!! |:(
