Wii Party U is a game in the Wii series for the Wii U. It is the sequel to the 2010 Wii game Wii Party. The game was announced on January 23rd 2013's Nintendo Direct broadcast, and later detailed at the E3 2013 and the October 2013 Nintendo Direct. Nintendo released the game on October 25, 2013.
These games are mostly board games running very similar to Mario Party. The modes include:
- Game Pad Island
- Highway Rollers
- Mii Fashion Plaza
- The Balldozer
- Team Building
These are more involved games that "transform" your living room. They include:
- Button Smashers
- Name that Face
- Lost-and-Found Square
- Sketchy Situation
- Do U Know Mii?
- Water Runners
- Feed Mii
- Dance With Mii
- The "Mii Audience" (When Mii characters cheer and clap on screen after a certain act is performed) now have complete bodies. While they had no legs and floating hands in the original game, they now have full legs and feet, and now have arms.
- The Host has the same Voice Sound FX from the original game.
- The game originally was scheduled to come out in Summer 2013 but at E3 2013, Nintendo had put the game aside to October 2013.
- In an interesting scenario, the game features two Mii characters sharing the same name of Elena. One of them is the original Elena who was included as a CPU of beginner difficulty, whilst the other is actually Barbara (a CPU of master difficulty) who was renamed as Elena for this game.
