Despite not being announced at Nintendo’s press conference, their online All-Access hub has revealed that a WarioWare styled game called Game & Wario (currently a working title) will also be making its way to Wii U. Wario and all his pals from Diamond City will be making an appearance, and the game will feature a whole host of games that only use the Wii U Game Pad controller.

You’ll be earning medals and various bonus items while you play, and we currently have details on four of the available games.

Arrow is a single player game that transforms the Game Pad into a hi-tech bow that’s shaped like Wario’s moustache (naturally), and you’ll fire arrows to defeat the game’s swarming enemies. Players will hold the Game Pad vertically with one hand to aim at enemies on the TV while the other hand will pull the arrow back on the touchscreen.

Ski is another single player game where competitors must lead the skier to the finish line by holding the Game Pad vertically and tilting it left or right. The TV monitor will show the skier’s flashy moves to entertain the audience.

Shutter, another single player game, sees the player using the GamePad like a tele-photo camera lens to take photos of criminals hidden in the town before the time runs out.

The last game currently revealed is called Fruit, a game for two to five players. Here the main player uses the Game Pad to anonymously control one of many characters on the TV screen in order to quietly steal fruit scattered all over the town. Once the thief completes the mission, the player passes the Game Pad to the other players, who then must try to find the suspect.

Additional games will be announced at a later time.
