Nintendo have revealed that the Wii U is set to have Family Party: 30 Great Games Obstacle Arcade. It promises to combine all the fun of the Wii U system with over 30 all-new party games specifically designed for four-player multiplayer and features dozens of hysterical obstacle courses, popular sporting events, and arcade and brain challenges that deliver an unmatched combination of variety and value.
Players will navigate through multiple locations in “Family Party Land”, a remote island divided by uniquely themed environments and obstacles to take on some of the wackiest challenges yet. Using the Wii U™ GamePad, players will be able to interact with their characters off-screen to enhance the gameplay and create a personalized touch. Obstacle Arcade promises to deliver hours of family entertainment where players can choose from over a dozen family-friendly characters and challenge each other in up to four-player multiplayer in 30 diverse games.
These over-the-top games include dodging barrels while on a horse, racing across obstacles floating on water, setting off and detonating fireworks, skydiving from above while avoiding a huge artillery of rockets being shot by other players and many more.
Unsurprising that the Wii U is promising this type of family fun game and 30 games does sound like pretty good value for money, even if only ends up seeing the light of day during family parties.
