Game & Wario (Wii U)

Game Profile

Wario's Wii U Masterpiece

Wario and his Diamond City friends are back in action. Game & Wario (working title) features a collection of games that use only the Wii U GamePad controller. The games retain the original flair and character of the micro-games from the WarioWare series.


To earn medals and various bonus items, players are encouraged to play a variety of games.

Arrow – This single-player game transforms the GamePad into a hi-tech bow (shaped like Wario's mustache, of course) and arrow designed to defeat swarming enemies. Players hold the GamePad vertically with one hand to aim at enemies on the TV screen, while using their other hand to pull the arrow on the GamePad's touch screen.

Ski – In this single-player game, competitors must lead the skier to the finish line by holding the GamePad vertically and tilting it left or right. The TV monitor will show the skier's flashy moves to entertain the audience.

Shutter – In this single-player game, the player must use the GamePad like a telephoto camera lens to take photos of criminals hidden in the town before the time runs out.

Fruit – In this game for two to five players, the main player uses the GamePad to anonymously control one of many characters on the TV screen to quietly steal some fruit scattered all over the town. Once the thief completes the mission, the player passes the GamePad to the other players, who then must try to finger the suspect.

According to Nintendo there are to be more minigames than those that were announced.



Marioman64 said:

the current video in the eShop for this game makes no sense. it's one minigame that makes no sense, how are you supposed to figure out who Iwata is controlling? and why would they show off what I'm praying is the game's worst minigame?

I've been having a great time with this game! I think this is the perfect game to make free to play or release additional DLC with extra levels, prizes and mini games to keep an already fun experience fresh at all times. Even if they added to the existing single and multiplayer experiences it would give it a little more depth overall. All in all, I'm glad I finally picked it up as I kept hesitating to buy it because of the mixed reviews.

Must have for all Wii U owners currently. Great way to show off the Gamepad and its abilities. Pirates can get pretty wild.
