Nintendo Carnival is an upcoming game exclusive to the Nintendo 3DS, it is considered a spin-off of Nintendo Land. It takes place in a Carnival full of many numerous Nintendo (and some non-Nintendo) franchises and attractions/minigames . It is created by SuyoGames and is set to release in 2013. It introduces the NintendoCoaster, a roller coaster that takes advantage of the 3D features of the Nintendo 3DS, making your character ride a rollercoaster in first person view. It also features Carnival Games, in which the player plays them to win prizes and Carnival Coins, in which are used to unlock things like costume pieces and even Minigames.

Feel free to post comments for suggestions for Minigames, Attractions, Carnival Games, and NintendoCoaster rides!
