At the last Nintendo Direct event, it was revealed that Game & Wario, the hyperactive party game for the Wii U, will be coming to America! Game & Wario was previously dated for Japanese release on March 28th, and will be coming to American shelves on June 24rd. The game will be released both in retail and 3DS eShop format. There is no word yet on a European release.

Game & Wario will be to the Wii U what Warioware Smooth Moves was for the Wii. Each game will make use of the Wii U Gamepad in different and interesting ways, showing off what the Wii U is capable of. It’s a lot like Nintendoland in that it’s a bit of a tech demo, but since every Warioware title is marketed as a party game anyway, this isn’t a bad thing.

Game & Wario was first showcased at E3 last year. We will likely get a chance to play a complete build of the game at this year’s E3.
