MasonicGamer.com - Nintendo Land was the climax of the Big N’s E3 press conference, and they put a lot of focus on it. It takes many classic Nintendo franchises and turns them into minigames, showcasing the many uses of the new GamePad. One example is Takamaru’s Ninja Castle, in which you throw ninja stars from the touchscreen at the comical enemies on your television, twisting your hands to angle the shurikens appropriately. It may sound silly, but it plays an important part in the acceptance of the new system.
Nintendo needs people to believe in the potential of the Wii U. The fact that their share prices dropped dramatically after the initial announcement of the system shows that the public is unsure how this console will turn out. Sure, having some popular, current-gen titles with new touchscreen functionality is cool, but why but a whole new system just for that?
