Wii Party announced for U.S. release

The Mii-meets-Mario Party minigame collection revealed by Satoru Iwata last month has been announced for a U.S. release during the Nintendo press conference. The game includes a number of different modes, such as "board game island," where players square off in over 70 minigames -- whether they'll be able to rely on pure chance to steal away opposing player's victories is still unknown. Wii owners living in the U.S. will be able to throw their own Wii Parties when the game comes stateside this holiday season.
