Early details from the latest issue of Game Informer are starting to come in. According to early details coming through NeoGAF, two new Nintendo Land attractions are revealed in the Wii U-themed magazine – Metroid Blast and Balloon Fight Breeze.
Metroid Blast is very much like the ‘Battle Mii’ Wii U demo first shown at E3 2011, albeit one that is more themed to Metroid, including classic music from the series, a Norfair level and a mechanical replica of Kraid that can be interacted with. Up to five players can play at one time, with one player always taking the role of Samus’s iconic ship through the Wii U GamePad. (The other four use Wii MotionPlus controllers with nunchuks.) Free-for-All, Team and Horde modes seem to be present, and the attraction features several maps.
Balloon Fight Breeze is a side-scrolling challenge, which controls through the GamePad’s touch screen and the stylus. Players must navigate their characters through a variety of obstacles, by directing gusts of wind with the stylus, getting as far as they can in the aerial obstacle courses. The Pad itself shows a close up view of the player’s Mii while the TV gives a wide perspective of the level.
No doubt more information will emerge from Game Informer’s latest issues as it reaches more subscribers. Plus there’s always that Wii U Preview Event next week…
