He can't wait

Ubisoft is making a mischievous play for Mario Party's market in Rabbids Land, a board game infused with mini games that'll be ready for Wii U's launch.

The distractions are amusement park-inspired — is this going to become a theme on Wii U? — and mix up competitive and co-operative asymmetric multiplayer. Up to three players will use Wii Remote Plus, while one lucky chap will get the Wii U GamePad.

Players race for trophies, taking part in six attractions per round from a total pool of 20 game types. Screenshots hint at rocket-powered rollercoasters and fantasy-inspired fancy dress; we've added them to the media gallery below.

Ubisoft promises that we'll hear more about Rabbids Land at GamesCom in August.
