Nintendo Details Remaining Three Nintendo Land Attractions

Nintendo have just unveiled details about the remaining three Nintendo Land attractions in their most recent Press Release. Attractions Yoshi's Fruit Cart, Captain Falcon's Twister Race and Octopus Dance now have descriptions. Up to now, very little was known about these three attractions. Here's the information from the official Nintendo of America Press Release, dated October 29th, 2012.
  • Yoshi's Fruit Cart: Using the GamePad touch screen and stylus, the player draws a path for the Yoshi Cart to follow through each course. However, only the view of the course displayed on the TV screen shows fruit that must be collected and obstacles that must be avoided along the way to the goal. This fun attraction is a great example of the kind of integrated second-screen game play made possible by Wii U and the GamePad controller.
  • Captain Falcon's Twister Race: In this single-player Attraction based on the F-Zero racing franchise, players get a top-down view of the track on the GamePad, which is held vertically and turned to steer the vehicle through a winding, twisting track, as they try to hit checkpoints before time runs out. Driving across dash plates can provide a quick burst of speed, while obstacles like speed spikes, whirlwinds, other vehicles and even bombs can make for a dangerous run.
  • Octopus Dance: In this single-player Attraction, players use the GamePad to mirror dance moves performed by a deep-sea dance instructor. The goal is to always be watching one's own movements from the back to more easily mirror dance moves, but the dynamic interaction between the GamePad and the TV adds a unique twist. Players must be ready to switch between the views offered on the TV screen and the GamePad screen, as sometimes one view is more useful than the other.
Nintendo Land will launch on November 18th, 2012, along with the Wii U Deluxe Set. Nintendo Land will also be sold separately at a retail price of $59.99.

This was my favorite game that I played. I am excited to play the rest of the attractions.
They all sound pretty fun!
I think they sound fun as well.
Ugh, Octupus Dance will take some getting used to.

Yeah but that is half of the fun, is it not?
