Hands-On with the GameStop Wii U Kiosk

Admittedly, it had been a while since I’d laid my hands on Nintendo’s upcoming console.  The last I’d seen of the system was back at E3 and, while I’ve been following coverage like a hawk, how the gamepad felt in my hands was growing a bit dim in my mind.  To my surprise the other […]

Fun For All Ages To Be Had At "Nintendo Land"

The last thing shown during Nintendo’s Press Conference was something that would bring the core and casual gamers alike together in one fun place: Nintendo Land. Composed of twelve mini-games that can be played by up to five people Nintendo Land features all the classic Nintendo characters under one roof in different styles of gameplay. At E3 I was able to go head-to-head with other players on the five mini-games being shown on the floor.

The first mini-game to be shown was The Legend of Zelda: Battle Quest, a rail-influenced game where up to four players travel on a Link-like quest to vanquish the village of boss hogs and other evil spirits. Three players will use the Wiimote as their swords, which will be used to slice opposing forces and block on-going attacks. The fourth player, on the other hand, will use the Gamepad as a bow and arrow system to take out enemies too high up for the swordsmen to reach. There is a catch, though: all four players share the same lifeline, so if one dies it’s game over. Players will also collect coins and hearts throughout the level, though the usage for the coins wasn’t revealed during the demo.
