    Wii Party


    Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata during an investor briefing today unveiled Wii Party, the next game in the Wii ___ (fill the blank) line to follow Wii Sports, Wii Fit and Wii Music. In Wii Party the Miis, will be the stars of the game.

    During the briefing Iwata pointed that there are over 160 million Miis created and that Nintendo has not released a Party game since Summer 2007 (Mario Party 8)
    He told investors to expect Wii Party to be a major title from Nintendo for this fiscal year.

    You can read the complete briefing here:

    Iwata Presentation on Wii Party:

    It’s called, “Wii Party”.
    As you know, “Wii something” are the titles that we use only with software that Nintendo has developed exclusively for Wii with the aim to make them marquee titles for Wii. We are developing this game with the aim to make it a marquee party game for Wii.

    "The developers are spending significant time for this title so that they can include elements that are must-haves in a party game as well as making sure that adequate volume of game play are available. We are developing it with the intent that every Wii player will be able to find a game that can be enjoyed. In a game play mode called 'Living Party,' there are unique game play only available with the Wii Remote."

    In this software, Miis are used as the players’ characters. According to our own survey, we know that more than 160 million Miis have been created by our customers in Japan, the U.S. and six countries in Europe alone, In Japan, thanks to the popularity of the Tomodachi Collection software, an increasing number of Japanese are taking to their Miis. In a sense, it is a natural move for your Miis and your friends’ and family members’ Miis to show up in a Wii party games.

    Nintendo has not launched a marquee party game since Mario Party 8, launched in summer 2007. However, since Wii is usually being played by several people at once and the global sales of Mario Party have reached 7.6 million units, a party title has great potential.
    This is one of the titles which, we hope, will play an important role for this fiscal year.
    Screenshots presented during the briefing suggested the following modes of play


    Teiban Party
    Playable by one to four players. Includes "teiban," or "standard," games like Bingo, Roulette, Mii-jan, Overseas Trip Game and Sugoroku (dice).

    Pair Party
    Recommended for two players. Includes Compatibility Check, Balance Ship, and Mii Awase (Mii Alignment).

    Living Party
    Playable by more than two people. Iwata said that this area would feature new play types made possible by the Wiimote.

    Sweet! I've sort of been waiting for this one. I hope they come up with some really good mini-games and everything.

    On a side note, 'Wii Fill in the Blank' would be an excellent game in my opinion..
