Retro Gaming 10’s- Nintendo Land: (2012)

When it comes down to top video games to be released for the Nintendo Wii-U one of the few titles that instantly comes to mind is the party game known as Nintendo Land. The popularity Nintendo Land is something that may have came as somewhat of a surprise after its release in November 2012 considering the fact that it ended up becoming more successful than both Mario Party 9 & 10 as far as sales are concerned. When Mario Party 10 came out for the Wii-U back in 2015 it managed to reach over 2.2 million copies worldwide in sales. Nintendo Land was a title that reached over 5 million sales and ended up becoming one of the top five best selling video games for the Wii-U console overall. Nintendo Land heavily emphasized showing players how to utilize accessories affiliated with the Wii-U such as Wii U GamePad in relation to its mini-games.

The cool thing about Nintendo Land was that the Wii-Remote and nunchucks could also be utilized due to the backwards compatibility of the Wii-U. Despite, being one of the best selling titles for the Wii-U some would argue that Nintendo Land was largely successful due to the fact that it was released shortly after the console it’s came out in late 2012. However, there are still some people who believe that Nintendo Land deserve a direct sequel due to its success on the Wii-U. But since Nintendo has no plans on making a Nintendo Land 2 anytime in the near future its currently safe to say that company had no interest in making a reality any time soon.
