Nintendo is looking to deliver the same unmitigated sensation Wii sports achieved and hence has delivered a minigame collection. This shows off various systems’ core functionalities answering the question whether it is a quality release as a standalone. Most minigame collections employ a menu screen to allow the player select the particular game they want but Nintendo Land also offers an elaborate gateway that is in form of a plaza. Each gate represents a particular attraction and a tower where a player can play pachinko game with coins earned from playing the minigames.
