Nintendo Reveals New Details, Release Date for Game & Wario
Do you like mini-games? Do you like Wario? Then chances are that you’re pretty pumped for the upcoming Wii U title, Game & Wario. Luckily for you, today’s Nintendo Direct offered a peek at some of the new mini-games that will test your reflexes and maybe even cause you to spew obscenities at both your friends and your console.
The first mini-game introduced was a game called Island, in which two-to-five players launch little critters called “Fronks” onto islands. You can even use your Fronks to knock your friends’ Fronks off the island, causing them to scream out, “What the Fronk, dude?!”
The next game is called Patchwork and features a puzzle hosted by the series’ ninja twins, Kat and Ana. The objective is to put together a puzzle by recognizing the patterns in the shapes. You can even make familiar patterns like Mario’s face.
The last game shown off was Kung-Fu, an auto-jumper that puts you in control of Young Cricket as he jumps across platforms in order to complete his training. This game uses both your TV and the GamePad screen, giving you different angles of the action on both so that you can properly aim Young Cricket to land on safe platforms.
Game & Wario will release both in stores and on the eShop on June 23rd for $39.99. Pumped to play these games? Then sound off in the comments section below and let us know which one you’re eager to play.
