Game Party Champions Announced for Nintendo Wii U

Warner Bros. Interactive today announced a new title for Nintendo’s upcoming Wii U console, Game Party Champions.

As the name probably suggests, the game is a collection of minigames ala Wii Sports. With the Wii U GamePad, intuitive motions control the gameplay giving players of all skill levels a fun experience. Rendered in eye-catching HD graphics, the game lets players can compete in classic games such as ping pong and skill ball, and modern favourites such as table hockey and hoop shoot.

“Developed specifically for Wii U, Game Party Champions has a fun, pick up-and-play style that experienced and novice gamers will equally enjoy,” said Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Production and Development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “Players can tilt, turn and swipe the Wii U’s revolutionary touch screen controller to play in entirely new ways.”

Game Party Champions offers three exhilarating game modes: Quick Play, Story Mode and Party Mode. Players who are hungry for instant action can pick any game and start playing in Quick Play. In Story Mode,players try to outplay each other to prove they’re worthy of the “World Champion” title.

In Party Mode, players can see if they are champions by taking their turns with the Wii U GamePad, while the others use Wii Remote controllers to grief (wreak havoc) on their game. Players then spin a wheel to see what game they’ll play next.

    Here come the Minigame Collections…
    I fear nothing has really changed since the Wii….

      For all anybody knows, it MIGHT be fun to play? Just putting it out there that it’s not unthinkable. Also, ‘nothing has changed since the Wii?’ – It’s not as if party games were exclusive to the Wii in the first place, and there was nothing wrong with the Wii; it was a very fine console with some excellent games. There are similar titles on the PS3 and X360; before that, there were Dance Mats. So, why does the Wii continue to be beaten with that stick? It’s both unfair and bizarre.

        Its the amount of party games on the wii and the lack of hardcore games.
        All systems have party games, but not with such a huge amount like the wii does.
