Wii Party sequel coming to Wii U this summer
A new installment in Nintendo's Mario Party-minus-Mario series, Wii Party will be released this summer for Wii U (original Wii version pictured). According to the brief announcement, "various play styles" will be included, like one that lets two players compete against one another using "just the GamePad."

The original game did some interesting things with the Wiimote, like having one player hide the controller while another finds it by listening for noises from the speaker. If nothing else, the new game will probably have some clever ideas for the GamePad.
