One of Nintendo’s quirkiest series has a Wii U installment on the way.

Titled Game & Wario (a working title), the latest offering in the WarioWare series will grace Nintendo’s new console with the series’ signature minigames, which, in this iteration, only use the Wii U GamePad.

 

Arrow, a featured minigame. That bow certainly looks familiar...

 

The announced minigames are as follows: In Arrow, the GamePad becomes a bow and arrow that players aim at enemies. Ski lets players tilt the GamePad to control a skiier. In Shutter, the GamePad becomes a camera lens, and players look for criminals hidden in the town and take pictures of them. Fruit has the first player stealing pieces of fruit in the town and the other players trying to find the suspect. The game’s multiplayer mode will be alternating – up to five players trade the GamePad during gameplay.

 

Ski, featuring WarioWare character Jimmy T.

 

Game & Wario, which may be retitled to something similar to WarioWare, will be available at the Wii U’s launch this holiday season.

About Will Whitehurst

Will joined the Operation Rainfall Campaign soon after news broke of that infamous French interview about Xenoblade. Subsequently, he got actively involved and became a staff member in July/August 2011. He is currently the head of the Japanese translation team, and loves to play, discuss, debate and learn more about games. Will gravitates towards unconventional action games and RPGs, but plays pretty much anything except Madden. He is also currently attending college, honing his Japanese skills and preparing for medical school. (Coincidentally, Trauma Center is one of his favorite game series of all time.)
