Nintendo Land consists of a series of 12 mini-games that showcase the new Wii U controller, much like Wii Sports did for the original Wii console. The 12 games are each based on an existing Nintendo franchise. Zelda, Pikmin and Mario (of course) all make appearances. There are 6 multi player games, Mario Chase, Luigi's Ghost Mansion, Animal Crossing: Sweet Day, The Legend of Zelda: Battle Quest, Metroid Blast and Pikmin Adventure. Single player games include Takamaru's Ninja Castle, Donkey Kong's Crash Course, Captain Falcon's Twister Race, Balloon Trip Breeze, Yoshi's Fruit Cart and Octopus Dance.
