Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announces Game Party Champions, a challenging game of skill launching exclusively for Wii U this holiday season. The latest iteration of the hugely successful Game Party franchise, the game offers players new ways to compete in arcade, sports and party games.

With the Wii U GamePad, intuitive motions control the gameplay giving players of all skill levels a fun experience. Rendered in eye-catching HD graphics, the game lets players can compete in classic games such as ping pong and skill ball, and modern favorites such as table hockey and hoop shoot.

?Developed specifically for Wii U, Game Party Champions has a fun, pick up-and-play style that experienced and novice gamers will equally enjoy,? said Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Production and Development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. ?Players can tilt, turn and swipe the Wii U?s revolutionary touch screen controller to play in entirely new ways.?

Game Party Champions offers three exhilarating game modes: Quick Play, Story Mode and Party Mode. Players who are hungry for instant action can pick any game and start playing in Quick Play. In Story Mode, players try to outplay each other to prove they?re worthy of the ?World Champion? title.
In Party Mode, players can see if they are champions by taking their turns with the Wii U GamePad, while the others use Wii Remote controllers to grief (wreak havoc) on their game. Players then spin a wheel to see what game they?ll play next.

The game is being developed by Phosphor Games http://www.phosphorgames.com.
