Nintendo Selects Trivia Quiz is a skill quiz on the Play Nintendo website. In this quiz, the player has to answer several trivia questions about various Nintendo 3DS and Wii U games that have been re-released as part of the Nintendo Selects line. An activity with a similar theme, Nintendo Trivia Quiz, is also available on the website, though it only focuses on Nintendo 3DS titles.

Overview[edit]

The player has a total of eight questions to answer. Each question gives the player four answers to choose from, with only one of them being the correct answer. When clicked on, the player must select "Check answer" to see if they are correct. If the player answers correctly, the item they selected will be highlighted green. If the player answers incorrectly, the item they selected will be highlighted red and the correct answer will be both written in the results area and highlighted green. At the end of the quiz, a message will pop up saying how many questions the player answered correctly out of eight. The player can then choose to either take the quiz again or take a different quiz on the website.

Questions[edit]

Correct answers are marked with a green border. Messages displayed in the quiz for answering a question right or wrong are also shown.
