Nintendo Selects Trivia Quiz is a skill quiz on the Play Nintendo website.[1] 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 is given a total of eight questions to answer. Each question provides four answers to choose from, with only one of them being the correct answer. The player has to press "Check Answer" to see if the answer they selected is correct. If they selected the correct answer, their answer will be highlighted green. If the player answered incorrectly, the answer that they chose will be highlighted red, and the correct answer will be highlighted green. At the end of the quiz, a message will pop up saying how many questions the player got out of eight. The player then can choose to retake the quiz or to 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.
