Wii U Game Makes You A Boy Who Stays Up Past His Bedtime To Play More Games

By Spencer . February 28, 2013 . 5:00pm

Game & Wario has a neat meta game called "Gamer." You play as the video game Nintendo fanboy 9-Volt who lives in Diamond City. 9-Volt has the hottest game in town, Balloon Fighter, and can’t put the Wario Ware-like game down. Every night he pretends to go to sleep and plays Balloon Fighter on a handheld game system… well until his Mom catches him. The "Gamer" mini-game has 9-Volt on the TV and turns the Wii U gamepad into his handheld system.

"Pirate" is a mini-game that Nintendo originally displayed as a Wii U tech demo. Players raise the gamepad like a shield and move it around to block plunger arrows. In Game & Wario, "Pirate" has a rhythm to it with Captain Wario shouting orders to shoot arrows left, right, up, and down.

"Kung Fu" is a platformer with two perspectives. On the TV you have a behind the shoulder view and on the gamepad you have a top down view.

"Patchwork" is a drag and drop puzzle game where you place pieces of felt to complete a picture.

    Awww, man. That first game is really clever.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Game and Wario is looking more interesting than Pikmin here lol.
    And if this game is just as good as the Wii warioware game, i am sure going to enjoy this game with my whole family again.^_^

    So you’re playing a WarioWare game as a gamer playing a previous WarioWare game. That’s awesome.

    Also notice the Virtual Boy in his room.

    So the first game is a game within a game. Insert Leonardo dicaprio image here meanwhile is heard hans zimmer music.

  • JustThisOne

    Woah, this is getting too meta. It’s also what I used to do all the time. xD Interesting selling point.

  • LittleMofreaky

    Why can’t we get a release date in NA yet? :(

    • Because Nintendo’s most likely hung up on other things at the moment, like those other games they still have yet to announce.

    Gamer totally sounds like me in elementary school lol.

    I can’t wait to play this. The portable WarioWare games were awesome.

    • puchinri

      This was weird to me, because this was the first time I read your comment with Mondo saying it. It was kind of awkward, kind of hilarious.

      • Solomon_Kano

        Ha. I can’t even imagine what he was like in elementary school.

        • puchinri

          I’m not sure what the ratio of adorable to traumatizing would be. ^u^;
          Unless we find out he never had a childhood. . .

          • Solomon_Kano

            Quite possible. If he had one though, I figure he was probably a little like Shin-chan. After women from a young age haha.
