'Wii Party U' (WiiU) - New Screens

by Rainier on Oct. 22, 2013 @ 5:19 p.m. PDT

Enjoy board games and mini-games on the TV, play familiar tabletop games using the Wii U GamePad Controller, or transform your living room into a game show floor.

Invite your friends over—it’s time to party! Your living room becomes a party playground as you enjoy time together in comically themed board games and minigames that get everyone off the couch. Every kind of party can be found in this one unique package, which includes a Wii Remote Plus as well as a horizontal stand for your Wii U GamePad.

Have fun together with this new medley of living room party games! Four game modes change up the way you play with the Wii Remote controllers and GamePad. Attend a game show that tests how well others know you, or dance together to familiar tunes in House Party mode. If you’re just looking for a short burst of fun, look no further than Minigames mode, which features tournament brackets and a solo dojo fest. Try TV Party if you’re in the mood for a board game. You can also shut the TV off and play two-player tabletop games exclusively on the GamePad, which range from foosball to baseball to slot-car racing.

No matter what kind of party you're throwing, Wii Party U offers something for everyone.


Key Features:

  • Everyone at the party competes with his or her own Mii characters in a medley of party games.
  • Experience new ways to play with others using the Wii U GamePad. For example, in "Lost-and-Found Square," imagine you are the person holding the GamePad and you are lost in a playground. Your goal is to describe your surroundings based on what you see on the GamePad in order to help the other players find your location.
  • Post your impressions of game sessions to Miiverse™. You can rate your performance by adding a one- to five-star ranking after the match is over.
  • When you want to leave the TV behind, you can choose to play exclusively on the Wii U GamePad with an array of 15 tabletop games, ranging from foosball to baseball, for two-player competitive and cooperative play.
  • In addition to the main games that everyone can play together, there are 80 minigames that can be played on your own. These include Tabletop Minigames that can be played with the Wii U GamePad only.

Bundled with a Wii Remote Plus controller and stand at a suggested retail price of $49.99.
