Game & Wario Miiversketch Mode Revealed

Game & Wario turns the Miiverse into a microgame.

Game & Wario will include a Miiverse-centric feature called Miiversketch, which tasks players with quickly drawing items from memory.

During Kiyoshi Mizuki's Nintendo Miiverse GDC talk, the developer revealed Miiversketch, a Game & Wario mode that makes use of Miiverse's in-game message board system. In Miiversketch, players are instructed to draw a particular item within a short window of time. After the time has elapsed, the sketch will be posted to a dedicated board on Miiverse.

One example had players drawing King Tut within 60 seconds. Other examples included directions to draw a camel and a sloth.

Game & Wario launches in Japan tomorrow, March 28. It is expected to arrive in the west within the next few months.

Miiversketch - because combining only two words together just isn't enough.

Sounds moderately interesting, like a lot of things in this game. But will Game & Wario be able supplant Nintendo Land as the Wii U party game of choice? My gut instinct says no, but I'll definitely be keeping an eye on the review coverage out of Japan now that the game has been released over there.

Supplant? It doesn't have to. When we have people come over to play Nintendo we usually play more than one game. It just has to make it onto the list of games you'll pull out when people come over. I'm getting this game for sure!

Oh, I was thinking "show players a sketch from Miiverse and quiz them on which game the sketch is for".
