Game and Wario Launching With Wii U
Nintendo has announced Game and Wario (working title), a new WarioWare style game that will be launching alongside the Wii U console. Developed by Intelligent Systems, Game and Wario will see Nintendo's pudgy, mustached mascot and crew take on a variety of mini-games (not the usual Wario micro-games) that solely utilize the Wii U controller.
Nintendo confirmed four of the sure-to-be many mini-games found in Game and Wario, including: "Arrow," which will see players hold the Wii U GamePad vertically and fling arrows at swarms of enemies on screen; "Ski," where players must tilt the GamePad in either direction to keep their virtual skier on track to the finish line; "Shutter," where the GamePad will serve as a sort of digital camera; and "Fruit," a multiplayer game in which one player is tasked with stealing fruit around a virtual town, while up to four others are assigned with catching the apple-swiping thief. Additional games will be announced at a later date.
