One of the games features launching Fronks with the Wii U gamepad on to an island. While the idea is to have more Fronks on there than your competitors, there’s a bit of strategy to the game. Is it better to get your Fronks on, or use them to push your opponents’ off?
The Ninja Twins will reappear on Game & Wario with a new puzzle game called Patchwork. Within the game, you’ll use the gamepad’s touch screen to fill in parts of the puzzle. There is a 3D overlay to the puzzles, challenging you to put in the correct pieces to create Ninja Twin items and familiar Nintendo characters.
In the Kung Fu mini-game for Game and Wario, Cricket is being tested by his master as he leaps his way through the courses. You’ll have to watch TWO screens at once to successfully navigate through the courses. On the TV, you can see Cricket leaping in a straight-on view. However, on the gamepad, you have a top-down view. While some obstacles and paths will be obvious in both views, others will only be apparent in one – tricky! Of course, you’ll be doing all this leaping while also filling Cricket up on his favorite food, dumplings.
Game & Wario will be released on June 23rd for $39.99 and will be available in the Nintendo eShop
