Wario Ware Smooth Moves for Wii


Wacky and then some, while wandering around his home of Diamond City, Wario accidentally stumbles into an old building called the Temple of Form. Inside, he finds a mystical treasure called the Form Baton (read wii mote).

There are many ways to hold and move the baton (called "forms"), and legend has it that if the holder follows the forms, he can overcome any challenge. With this discovery, the form craze spreads through Diamond City, and soon everybody is doing their best to master the moves.

Players use 18 unique remote control movements to chop barrels, turn levers, run races and more. Actions include turning the Wii remote on its side and pumping it up and down to inflate a balloon, swinging it in your arms to make a man run in a race, making a slashing motion to cut a barrel, turning it on its side and forming circles to turn a crank and placing it on the hips and wiggling to make a character use a hula-hoop. Some will also require you to switch these motions at a moments notice.

With more than 200 lightning-quick microgames, party entertainment has been raised to a whole new level.

Due for release in US on 12th or 17th Jan (depending on where you visit), and a European release on 12th January.

Can't say really... I've been experimenting with fungus beer lately. Better ask the girls though...

Past WW's kicked ass, so this should too... especially with a whole new way to play, though my favorite was the original on GBA, where you play the classic way.

...the girls... now i'ts coming back to me.... :) wow these blackouts are worrisome... but the hallucinogenic properties are awesome..... lol for a while it looked like i was in a harem.... (sratches head....)

Never had the pleasure of WW playtime (never had a GBA either sniff!), but the fun potential certainly looks enormous...

gnome said...
