This party game (for 1-4 players) lets you compete using your Mii character in a variety of games. It provides new ways to play with others using the Wii U GamePad. For example, in the Lost-an-Found Square game, you are lost in a playground and must describe your surroundings to the other players based on what you see on the GamePad, in order for the other players to find your location. Content includes 80 minigames that can be played on your own, without the TV, using the Wii U GamePad only. You can also post your impressions of game sessions to Miiverse, and rate your performance by adding a one to five star ranking after the match is over. includes a Wii Remote Plus controller. CTR Tester Corey Hahn: "Wii Party U is an amazing multiplayer and party game involving the Miiverse. You couldn't ask for a better Wii Party game. Gameplay involves House, TV, and GamePad Party modes which have great and somewhat good games for playing. The controls function like the games should in real life such as sports for example. Don't forget about the amazingly fun mini-games. What I really love is the board games and how fun they are. For some of the Wii U Gamepad games, I find it unnecessary to hold the Wii U Gamepad vertically instead of horizontally. I also like how this game plays well either single or multiplayer. This game is flexible. Graphics look average to great for a Wii U game as comparing it with Wii and Wii U, you can see the latter has HD while Wii doesn't. It is great that this game has the best of both the Wii U GamePad and Wii Remote. The game's graphics and design center around the Miiverse and the characters such as players will look like Mii avatars. I like how Nintendo is able to make the Wii and Wii U unique and what makes Wii Party U amazing is using the Miiverse characters to the fullest, unlike games like Family Party: 30 Great Games Obstacle Arcade." The conclusion? Wii Party U is a marvelous edition to Wii based family entertainment. The $50 bundle includes a regular Wii Remote. Developed by NDCUBE Co., Ltd. for Nintendo.
