Yoshi's Fruit Cart is a minigame appearing in the Wii U title, Nintendo Land. It requires the player to draw a path for the Mii on the Yoshi Cart to follow through each course. However, only the view of the course displayed on the TV screen shows the fruit that must be collected and obstacles that must be avoided along the way to the goal. This minigame is one of two from the 12 games in Nintendo Land to utilize its Stylus to draw paths on the touchscreen.

  • Apple: I have fond memories of my grandmother coming to bring me a basket of apples. Funny, I don't remember eating them...
  • Bananas: Here's a tongue twister for you: banana banana banana banana banana banana. Devious, isn't it?
  • Bee: These bees are serious predators, armed with stingers both at the rear and the mouth. Oh dear... I see that steely look in its eyes. It's after me!
  • Egg: Oddly enough, these eggs follow the Yoshi Cart on their own--no coercion required. This is good, because I'm not sure how one would go about trying to reason with an egg.
  • Goal Gate: These gates are opened only by gobbling up all the fruit. Rumor has it there are secret gates that take you to distant far off stages...
  • Grapes: You can squeeze grapes for juice, get oil from the seeds, or even eat them raw. Isn't that astonishing? That makes grapes a prime candidate for most well-rounded player of the fruit world.
  • Melon: Apparently, if you've never scooped into half a melon with a spoon, you haven't lived. But they only come as a whole around here at Nintendo Land, so I suppose I don't qualify as a living entity yet.
  • Number Flag: You'll find these flags sticking out of various pieces of fruit. Forcing people to eat in a certain order is unethical. I think I'll lodge a formal complaint...to myself.
  • Orange: When I think of oranges, I think of one thing: marmalade. This might be odd, considering I lack taste processing hardware.
  • Peach: This peach's skin looks fluffy, but don't rub it against your face, because it hurts! I don't fully understand nonrobotic life-forms, but I assume the first thing you do with a piece of ripe fruit is rub it on your face.
  • Pear: Pare a pair of pears to get a pair of pared pears. My search function tells me this is a good recipe for fruit salad...
  • Present: This is your reward for doing such a good job. As for what's inside... Well, you'll have to wait and see!
  • Spike: This trap can be levered in and out of the ground. The cart may not be able to feel pain, but stepping on one of these will certainly damage it.
  • Strawberry: The name "strawberry" is among the least appealing names known to all fruitkind, and yet it is among the most delicious. It is one of life's tastiest mysteries.
  • Watermelon: This perfectly succulent and juicy treat hits the spot on a hot summer day. Be sure to leave it on a flat surface, though, or you'll end up with a runaway-watermelon situation.
