Not a new playground game for small boys, but an intriguing new use of the Wiimote in the upcoming Wii Party.
The Nintendo Wii and party games seem to go together like burgers and fries, and is possibly the most popular genre of game on the Nintendo console, much to the dismay of self-confessed “hardcore” gamers. There are so many party type games available, but at the end of the day, they all offer more or less the same experience.
Upcoming party title from Nintendo, Wii Party, offers something a little bit different, however. Packing in more than 80 mini games, 13 different game modes and the use of the players Mii within the game certainly makes the game one of the most feature packed. But the innovative games found within the House Party mode are where the game really stands out.
Within House Party mode, players will find mini games that offer a new level of interactivity. For example, in the game of Hide ‘n’ Hunt all but one player must leave the room. The remaining player will then hide their Wiimote and the other must return and find that Wiimote using only the sounds emitted from their own controllers. In another game, Animal Tracker, the players must listen to the sounds coming from the controllers and decide which is the correct animal.
But that is just a small taste of the mini game fun to come. To make sure that as many people can join the fun as possible, each copy of Wii Party will come bundled with a Wiimote. Wii Party should be in shops on October 8th.
