Wii Party News
This is a (Wii) Party political broadcast

More classics at a budget price
It's common, especially for hugely popular Wii and DS first-party games, for prices to fail to drop even as the years pass by.

From 25th April Wii owners in North America will be able to grab the Wii Sports Resort with a MotionPlus accessory

Be afraid. Be very afraid
Halloween is upon us. We've been celebrating Spook Month for the past thirty-one days, with reviews of frightening or fright-themed retro games every Friday and Saturday, and after a good bout of trick-or-treating or dressing up to go to Rocky Horror, we'll be sitting down to some of our favourites that make us cringe, jump...
This just in: Nintendo advertising campaign works
Never let it be said that teaming a completely harmless boyband with a family-friendly video game doesn't work. Kiddie favourite boppers JLS have clearly been doing sterling work in promoting Wii Party, as the game leaps six places to number four in the UK chart. With the exception of re-entries, the...
Decent showing for party title
Wii Party is likely to be one of Nintendo's sleeper hits this Christmas, its deadly combination of Mii characters and a bundled Wii Remote all-but assuring it'll sell shedloads in the run-up to the Yuletide season. Its first weekend on sale in the UK has seen the game take a respectable 10th position on the charts,...

Game to be bundled with Wii Remote
With recently slow but top-of-the-week sales numbers in Japan, it's interesting but not surprising that Nintendo has taken a majority stake in the developer behind Wii Party, which sold more than 23,000 copies last week. The game had a particularly strong performance during its sixth week after release, shifting an...
Get your dancing shoes on
Sneaking up on sales charts in Europe like a grass snake destined to make a fortune, Wii Party is set to conquer living rooms across the continent from October 8th.
