This is just like Wii Sports, but it consist of 9 mini games that's 1-2 players. Comes out on February 12th.


Here are the nine games:

  • Table Tennis - This game is basically a game of Pong, rallying back and forth by moving the Wii remote. The Mii characters are supported, and are represented by the audience. As the game progresses, the audience grows larger. The player controls the position of their paddle with the Wii remote pointer, no swing or hit motion is used (though ball direction can be altered slightly by moving the remote left or right while hitting the ball).

  • Laser Hockey - Played like air hockey, this is a two player game where the players move the Wii remote to deflect shots and try to score in the opponents goal. Aiming with the Wii remote moves the rectangular paddle around the field, while twisting the Wii remote can angle the paddle to deflect shots in any direction. According to developers, the physics engine used to calculate the velocity and position of the shots is extremely advanced, with Shigeru Miyamoto even stating that it rivaled the Havok physics engine in its realism.

  • Fishing - Players use the Wii remote as a fishing rod, to hook specific paper fish and then yank upwards to grab them. The Wii remote pointer is used to move the rod around, downward and upward motions sink/raise the fishing hook in and out of the water. Different points are added and subtracted depending on the fish caught. A display at the top of the screen shows which fish gives bonus points if caught, and changes every 30 seconds or so.

  • Find Mii - Crowds of Mii characters will gather on the screen (standing, swimming, walking and doing other things) and the player is given certain details to look for among them. The player then must pick out the proper Miis that matches the objective. The objectives range from picking two or three Miis that are identical, to picking the fastest Mii, or the odd Miis out (doing things that other Miis aren't).

  • Pose Mii - This game can be extremely frantic and difficult. A player must move his Mii to falling bubbles using the Wii remote pointer. The player must also rotate his Mii to the correct angle of the bubble by rotating the Wii remote. In addition to this, as the game progresses, the poses inside the bubbles change, and the player must select the correct pose (out of 3 total) by cycling through them with the A and B buttons. When a Mii is correctly posed in a bubble, it bursts. If a bubbles is not burst and it eventually falls to the floor, the game is over. In the two player game, each player has different coloured bubbles, but they may pop each other`s bubbles for extra points.

  • Shooting - Players go through various rounds of shooting balloons, targets, clay pigeons, cans and UFOs. There are targets that have the faces of the player's Mii's which give points when the opponent's Mii is shot. Ducks drawn in the style of the ducks from Duck Hunt also occasionally fly by.

  • Billiards - Players play 9 Ball Billiards like traditional pool games. Players line up their shot in both an overhead 2D and behind-the-ball style 3D viewpoints. They may aim for contact on the cue ball at any point to add spin or bounce or a weird angle. They pull the cue stick (Wii remote) backwards, then hit it forward to launch the ball.

  • Charge! - The player rides a cow by holding the Wii Remote sideways, and topples scarecrows to score points. The Wii Remote is also tilted forward to increase speed, and backward to decrease speed. The player must also jump barriers by jolting the Wii remote upwards as if jumping.

  • Tanks! - This game uses the Wii Remote D-pad (or nunchuk attachment) to move a tank about the screen. The Wii Remote pointer aims on a target and the B button fires shells. Shells can rebound off walls once. There are also mines that can be placed that destroy all tanks within a certain radius. The point of the game is to destroy enemy tanks while avoiding being destroyed yourself.

Are there screen shots available for this game?

I think this'll be a great game for a college dorm room... Can't wait to get into it.

I got this game, and man, most of the games are enjoyable and fun to play with a crowd of people.

I'll put the list in correct order as well.

Shooting - Pure fun. The shooting mechanics are super easy, and much better than the gun ever was. You shoot ballons, targets, cans, ufos, clay skeets, and duicks that randomly fly by. You gain points fort he more chains you get. Great fun.

Find Mii - find 2,3 or even 4 like Mii's in a crowd of your Mii's and random Mii's. Also, therei s variations to what the Mii's are doing, like walking diagonal, riding escalators, swimming, floating in space, hiding in a dark room. You may need to find the odd Mii's out, and ones that are asleep, or the fastest Miis walking or swimming, so there is good variation in this game.

Table Tennis - as a one player, essentially boring as you do nothing but rally the ball back and forth, you can't get it past the computer at all. As a two player, much more engaging as you fight to get to 11 first.


Pose Mii - Weakest one in the set. You match the pose of your Mii by turning the Wiimote in a circle, left or right. I found it dull, and the diffluculty is pretty high on this one.

Laser Hockey - One player game is against the computer to score as many points as you can before time runs out, two player, it's against each other until you reach 8. Either way, pretty fun, and acts almost like Air Hockey realistically.

Billiards - Very interesting way to do this game, and the physics work out to be realistic as well. Fun.

Fishing - a fun game surprisingly. Unlike the fishing in Zelda, there is no reeling, simply place the hook in the water, and pull the Wiimote back when a fish nibbles. You get bonus points if you catch the current fish marked in the bonus point box, which changes a random intervals. Watch out for the King of the Pond and Mystery Fish.

Charge! - A race between cows knocking over Scarecrows. Nuff said. :)

Tanks! - Like the old school Tanks game, were your bullets bounce off of walls.In a two player, you work together, but the one who kills the most enemy tanks win.

All in all, it's a fun fun game. I highly reccomend it for party use. As a single player game it lacks, still fun, but lacks.

E, this would a great game for your children, very easy to use.

Pretty much sums it up. My only wish is for a little more depth in the Shooting game.

Sweet. I almost bought this the other day but my wife told me not to...I think she got it for me for my birthday. If not, I'm getting it. I can't wait to play billiards.

I got this for my birthday like I had hoped. My wife gave it to me early because she was afraid I might buy it. :D

AWESOME. Laser Hockey is particularly cool, but Billiards is AWESOME. I couldn't stop playing. In fact, I might go play more in a minute.

Charge is also fun.

Pose Mii is very innovative and fun, and I was surprised how difficult it got quickly.

My least favorite is Tanks. It's just weak compared to the other games.

This is sold out everywhere. :cry:

If you're looking for it, just keep watching. Most stores around here are sold out but they are much easier to come by than the system itself.

I bought this with a nunchuck. Tired of having 3-4 friends over and only one can play. Can't wait for some multiplayer action!
