E3 2012: NintendoLand Will Be the New Mario Party

on June 5, 2012 1:22 PM

NintendoLand is a new virtual theme park combining a dozen different Nintendo IPs into one entertainment zone. Not only will you be able to walk around and interact with other players and their Miis but play and compete in different challenges like Donkey Kong’s Crash Course, Takamaru’s Ninja Castle, and Luigi’s Ghost Mansion.

The last one we got to see in detail to feature asymmetrical gameplay, featuring five players. Four players on the Wii control people trying to use flashlights on a fifth player controlling a ghost via Wii-U. That fifth player can see all the others and has to ambush and trap them to win. Look for NintendoLand at the same time as the Wii-U releases.
