Not being a fan of Star Fox, I'm so glad it became a Metroid attraction in stead. Having said that, Star Fox is one of Nintendo's big-ish titles, so it's a shame to see that it didn't make it in there somewhere. I'm even more surprised that Kirby is sitting it out, too.

Agree. I'm surprised there was no Star Fox or Kirby. I love Kirby as well. He's always the forgotten one. I think, if they have more ideas, they should definitely make a NintendoLand 2. I would definitely buy it!

Why didn't they have a pokemon game? They could've done something like pokemon snap or a fighting game where you control how the pokemon moves instead of pressing buttons.

Good to know that they at least thought about a Star Fox one, but I am shocked that Nintendo remembers 1080 Snowboarding, yet there hasn't been a new one for years!
As you can tell, I like the 3DS. A lot.

Well Kirby and Pokemon didn't have attractions since they're owned by Hal Lab and Game Freak respectively, Nintendo don't actually own them. They're in Smash Bros though which I don't get lol. But yeah Star Fox as well as other IPs shoulda been in this game in-stead of having like 4 Mario attraction they could've spread them out. Metroid Blast woulda been better as Star Fox I reckon anyway. It's also very surprising they mentioned 1080 Snowboarding haha.

It will be great if Nintendo Land expands with DLC, new content would really keep this game feeling deep and fresh. Seeings as there are so many IPs left to include there is no end of content that could be included providing the imagination is there.

could have easily tweaked to make a star fox game - :( Agree with DK attraction, loved Excitebike from the moment I played it (8-10 yrs ago, on my GBA... AAHH NOSTALGIA, HOW I LOVE THEE)
3DS Code = 4914-3785-6773 - feel free to add! :)

Loving my Wii U and it's libary!

That actually seems quite likely, going by Wii Sports Resort and Wii Play Motion. I ♥ Kirby!

I thought it was a bit odd that some of the music from Metroid Blast is surprisingly well suited to Star Fox.

HAL Labs is a subsidiary of Nintendo, making the Kirby franchise if not wholly but partly owned by Nintendo.

Pokemon is owned by Nintendo and developed by GameFreak.
