Nintendo of Canada representative Matt Ryan was recently interviewed by Mario’s Hat. Ryan was asked to share his thoughts on Nintendo Land, which is an upcoming Wii U launch game. According to Ryan, Nintendo Land is a “huge title” for Nintendo, and “is also the epitome of showing off what Wii U has to offer with the controls.”
Ryan claims that Nintendo Land is ‘more robust’ than both Wii Sports and Wii Play because “it’s not just mini-games, but there’s actually different levels, [and] different things available in each of the attractions.” Ryan wants to assure consumers that, unlike Wii Sports and Wii Play, Nintendo Land “is a full game.”
“Nintendo Land is a huge title for us, and it is also the epitome of showing off what Wii U has to offer with the controls, what the Wii U GamePad… having a different role, having a different perspective compared to what the other players using the Wii Remote Pluses are having. So it is an extremely important title for us, and will be one of the anchor titles for the launch of Wii U, no doubt.
“Our presence at E3 was very much about Nintendo Land. Even our whole booth looked like Nintendo Land, because it’s super-fun and what it’s able to show. Sometimes we say what Wii Sports was to Wii, Nintendo Land is to Wii U, except the major difference is– and this is something that we really want to get across– is that it’s not just mini-games, but there’s actually different levels, different things available in each of the attractions… a lot more than what was available in Wii Sports. We want people to know that this is a full game.”
