Nintendo Land's F-Zero & Yoshi games revealed, detailed

Nintendo Land is the Wii U's equivalent of Microsoft's Game Room service, giving players a slew of small mini-games to play with friends. Three new games have been added to the roster, including games based on F-Zero and plucky dinosaur pal Yoshi.

ONM reports that Nintendo Land's latest additions were showcased at the Play Expo in Manchester over the weekend, and that a fact sheet at the showcase detailed each of the three new games:

Captain Falcon's Twister Race: In this single-player attraction, you'll hold the narrow end of the Wii U GamePad upright with both hands to guide a high-speed wind-up vehicle toward the finish line.

Octopus Dance: This is a single-player, rhythm-based attraction using the Wii U GamePad. You must instantly memorise the movement of the character on screen and re-enact the poses using the Control Sticks or gyro sensor.

Yoshi's Fruit Cart: In this brain-teasing single-player attraction, you're asked to guide Yoshi's cart towards the goal while collecting all the fruit along the way. The catch is that you can see fruit on the TV but not on the GamePad, a game-play mechanic made possible only using two screens.

VG247 went hands-on with the full NintendoLand line-up recently and detailed what was on offer. Check out our thoughts below:
