Step right up for Carnival Games: more minigames for the Wii

If you're anything like us, one of your chief complaints of Nintendo's waggle-enabled phenom isn't the dearth of games that really push the control mechanism in new directions, it's the lack of minigame compilations! Sure, the system comes with Wii Sports, Ubisoft gave us Rayman Raving Rabids, Nintendo brought us WarioWare: Smooth Moves and Wii Play, EA's got EA Playground, Nintendo still has Mario Party 8, and now Take-Two is sending us down the midway with Carnival Games. Sure, that sounds like a lot for a system that's only six months old.

But we can't help ourselves. The thought of playing "25 of the most popular games seen in midways and boardwalks throughout the world, including Clown Splash, Milk Can Toss, Nerves of Steel, Lucky Cups, Hoops, Day at the Races and the crowd-favorite Dunk Tank" has us all worked up. Announced at the Nintendo Media Summit, happening right now in Seattle, Carnival Games is due this summer for the reasonable price of $40. C'mon fella, it's just $40! Don't you wanna win a bear? Lookit' that, guy won't spend a couple bucks to win his special friend a teddy bear. I'll give ya 25 games for the price of one, just for you fella.
