Nintendo has released a brand new Wii U trailer for the upcoming party game Nintendo Land. The gameplay trailer showcases the newly revealed Nintendo Land mini-game Balloon Trip Breeze. Players use the GamePad to control the wind and guide the balloon across the level, while collecting hovering balloons, coins, and power-ups. Nintendo Land will feature 12 mini games ranging form Zelda, to Metroid, to F-Zero, and even Donkey Kong. Now we can add Balloon Trip Breeze to that list. The game is loosely based on “Balloon Fight”, which was released on the NES way back in 1986.

Nintendo Land will be a Wii U launch title when the console hits the stores later this year. It’s still unknown whether the game will be bundled with the console for free, or sold separately. Check out the gameplay trailer below:

    • Christopher

      I’ve been at Gamestop for 3 months now… I fear that my friends are starting to get hungry, there is a starbucks next to us… oh god why are we so hungry.

    • 345weas

      lol gamestop. That overpriced store. I really wonder why it’s so popular? Most of Americans sure are stupid. I’m happy I don’t live there.

      • Macarony64

        Well the used games are but on new games they have them on same msrp the companys gives

      • Amtoj

        I got Pikmin 2 for $10 there. Gamestop FTW.

      • Kirbymon123

        I can so picture you saying this with a British Accent

    • Thepokemonmaster

      No it’s not, But I am kinda suprised that I haven’t seen a mario game but all the spin offs…. AND NO POKEMON!?

      • Kirbymon123

        You’re right, not Mario. They also forgot Kirby.. ๐Ÿ˜›

      • Hero Of Time

        Okay, two things. One, you know that MARIO Chase is a MARIO Minigame, right? And two, if you love Pokemon that much, ask them to bring Mystery Dungeon Gen 3 to the PAL regions.

  • Nintedward , Can you smell what reggie is cooking ?

    This is the best thing i have seen on Nintendo Land yet , by far along with metroid blast .

    • Nintedward , pretending to be butt hurt

      Your grammar is awful. stfu …

      • Wils81

        Your grammar is fine now… you’re just a bit annoying is all.

        • dsk

          This is the best thing i have seen on Nintendo Land yet , by far along with metroid blast .
          It should actually be written as “This is the best thing I have seen on Nintendo Land yet, along with Metroid blast.”
          Or if you’re desperate, you can add in the by far BEFORE the comment and yet thus creating “This is the best thing I have seen on Nintendo Land by far yet, along with metroid blast.”

          ‘yet , by far along with’ is grammatically incorrect

        • Nintedward , pretending to be butt hurt

          Shut up troll .

          • Wils81

            Could you define “internet troll” for me? Enlighten me.

        • Lusunup


          • EPICGAMER111

            GO BATTLE QWEST

      • Kirbymon123

        Where’s the REAL Nintendward?

        • u mad bro

          Nintenward is becoming a patheic jerk

  • joe

    Well, it seems “ok”… kid may like it.

    • pman


      • Garzard


      • o0o

        Yeah, because someone with a different opinion than you is CLEARLY a troll! Let’s all mindlessly flame him for his wrong-doing!

    • Solboogie

      Yeah same here def. not for me but maybe my lil man might like it.

  • RonaldCoLtd

    Sounds cool. Nintendo Land FTW.

  • Shankovich

    How about a freaking TV commercial or something -_-

    • Nintedward , pretending to be butt hurt

      The force is all about patience young padawan . After the 13th commercial’s will be commonplace due to an official price tag and launch day.

      • pman

        Shock and Awe . A war will be waged on xbox and ps. When the wii u attacks they will be aw struck.

      • Shankovich

        You’re getting pretty annoying, I keep seeing your name everywhere and it seems by your like/dislike balance others probably agree with me. The launch date is around 2 months away and Nintendo hasn’t done any advertising to the public. All they need to do is show the Wii U and say “coming soon”, it’s Nintendo, they can’t NDA themselves!

    • TheImaj

      Exactly! And along the lines of “commercials”.. I’m tired of seeing Madden 2013 commercials and Assassins Creed commercials WITHOUT the WiiU logo.. WTF??!! You only see PC, PS3, xBox, etc.. No WiiU. Shame.

      • TheImaj

        Thumbs down? What are you an idiot? Or you just dont support the WiiU? Branding is important. These games have already been confirmed. So let’s see that logo right next to all the others. I’m just not sure who’s fault it is that it’s not on there.

  • NintendGo

    I think the wii u should come with nintendo land because I don’t think it will sell good. NO OFFENSE besides nintendo has not announce a game that goes along with the purchase of the wii u. I hope it will come with a game and that they announce that game on the 13

    • Your Mom

      Wii tennis u. Tennis was like one if the only things people played on wii sports.

      • Kirbymon123

        And Boxing. Everything else (I know I’m gonna regret this) kinda sucked

  • AwayToHit

    Nice the video is at 60 fps. Would love it if Youtube could start doing that ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Macarony64

    Stop making us suffer the 13 is still far away

    • Master Awesomeness

      Could be overshadowed by apple. iPhone 5. I don’t think that could happen, but it’s a possibility.

      • Ben

        Sad truth, for some reason people care so much about a phone that will look the same as one from 3 years ago and isn’t even the best one out while it still is one of the most expensive ones. Were i live there will be just a small corner of the newspaper with this news and almost a entire page about the new freaking iPhone. Sad, sad…

  • TheUNation

    Another fun attraction at Nintendo Land. I love it already!!!!!

    • Kybalion

      INR!? I’m starting 2 love it too!!

  • Metroidvania

    For everyone who’s missed this.

    Happy 71st Birthday to Gunpei Yokoi! You’ll never be forgotten. R.I.P.

  • Dr. Device

    I can’t wait to get my hands on this game, it really is probly the only game that will take full advantage of the game pads capabilities. One of the few games that isn’t using the gamepad in a gimmicky type fashion. ๐Ÿ™‚ WOOT. Go Nintendo, show everybody what a REAL company can do with a REAL console.

    • Master Awesomeness

      Zelda 2014 will be the best thing ever, and will do more with the wiped than we could ever imagine.

  • Nintentionally

    I hope they release a trailer per day

  • NiNtEnDoLoVeR

    I will preorder a Wii U friday!! preorder games too. And I will buy a 3DS game.

  • SteampunkJedi

    This mini-game looks quite interesting. Nintendo Land keeps looking better and better.

  • DK

    Nintendo Land will feature 12 mini games ranging form Zelda, to Metroid, to F-Zero, and even Donkey Kong. Now we can add Balloon Trip Breeze to that list.

    change form to from

  • ninjabake

    What’s crazy to me is a game like this is what many ppl would play on their mobile devices and its considered decent but when put on a console its deemed “kiddy” smh.

    Anyways I’m looking forward to the WiiU and this minigame looks fun

    • Bravyoura

      I always look for your comment as they seem unbiased and fair but don’t you think Nintendo needs to bring out the big guns, waiting until 2 months before launch seems like to little to late. This mini game has obviously been leaked so why not leak something big, I want to believe the pending conference will be huge with dozens of AAA titles but what if it turns into another E3.

  • Christopher

    Can’t wait to see this puppy demoed at my local GAME store =3

  • rafael

    Im not complaining about it, but i think this looks like one of those facebook games. Im not sure if Nintendo Land has the same Wii Sports potential. Maybe they should release the WiiU with the next Wii Sports that we have seem in that first Wiiu demonstration…That seemed to me as more compelling to the general public.

    This is just my opinion, though.

    • rafael

      Unless the similarity with mobile gaming is just the right appeal nowadays…who knows?

  • just NINTENDO

    the sound is great:d

  • Vehdrehl

    I hope they have some throwbacks to Balloon Fight. Especially the music, it was awesome!

  • jcb411abuser

    hardly what i’d call asymmetric gaming, this could be done on the 3ds, and i wouldn’t hog the tv, unless it is multiplayer and someone is making it more challenging with a wiimote or something

  • Madmagican

    It’s nice to see more stuff on Nintendoland; I’m really starting to hope that they do a bundle even though I’m pretty sure they said they wouldn’t

    • Grodus

      No, they never said that. They will most likely reveal it the 13th, so keep waiting.

  • Grodus

    Might as well as kept the bottom screen blank, but I guess you had to show SOMETHING, but whatever…

    Anyway, this is showing off touch screen + TV anyway, so cool. And good to know about the soon-my game. Unless It doesn’t come with the console and is $50/60.

  • brain

    if you really have to control it like that, this game will be a pain in the brain. imagin you have to look on two screens simultaneously which arenยดt at the same position…. hopefully you can play this potential good game with a real controller.
