This Wii Party U trailer shows off a ton of games

I see waggle!

Remember all those Wii commercials where families would get together and waggle their hearts out? Well it appears as if Nintendo is at it again with this Wii Party U commercial, but now you can use the GamePad while you waggle -- innovation!

Joking aside, this new Wii Party U trailer shows off a ton of features, and reveals that there are over 65 minigames to tackle. Interestingly enough, the game seems to only be packacked with a Wiimote at retail and the digital version reportedly clocks in at over 5GB, so if you have a standard Wii U you should be prepared to get an external harddrive.

All in all it looks like a decent distraction (especially if I can get the disc-only version on the cheap), and I think I want to start a campaign Party Phil for Smash Bros. 2014.
