Some Wii Party details were leaked out thanks to HMV, despite Nintendo being rather quite on game since it announced Wii Party during an investors meeting in May.

During the meeting, CEO Satoru Iwata the title would offer mini games made possible by the Wiimote, and according to details found by Andriasang, there’s six games in this mode.

  • Wanwan Karuta: The Wiimote for each of four players plays back a different sound. Which sound matches the animal that’s shown on screen?
  • Remote Control Hide and Seek: Hide your Wiimote somewhere in the room and have other players search for it, relying only on the sound made by the Wiimote.
  • Sensitive Bomb: Hold the Wiimote like a bomb, and try to pass it off to other players without shaking it.

The listings above are part of what’s being called “Living Party” mode, which is one of three modes of play.

The listing also suggests that there will be over 80 mini games in the game’s “Teiban” or “Standard” party mode.

No more details were offered, but Bingo and Roulette are also expected when it’s released on July 8 in Japan.
