New 'Wii Party Game' Makes New Use of Wiimote

According to IGN, the retailer HMV provided details on the game's "Living Party" games. 

At the Wii Party announcement last month, Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata said these games would make clever use of the Wiimote. This seems to be the case.

The HMV report mentions three games:

Wanwan Karuto

The screen shows the picture of an animal. Each players' Wiimote makes an animal sound. Can you guess which sound matches the animal shown on the screen?

Remote Control Hide and Seek

You hide your Wiimote somewhere in the room and other players try to find it based just off the noises coming from the device.

Sensitive Bomb

Hold the Wiimote up and pass it along to other players, trying your best to keep it perfectly still. If the Wiimote shakes, it explodes (well, not really, of course). 

Wii Party will have six of these "Living Party" games along with 80 more basic "standard" games. The Japanese release of Wii Party is set for July 8.  No word on the U.S. release date, but Gfest hopes it is soon. (image via ign)
