Found 6th Jun 2013
Best price I've seen for this, should be a fun, wacky game (probably similar to Warioware on Wii).
Could always try Flubit for a better deal too.

Wario and his zany friends are back in Game & Wario, a brand new, colourful collection of crazy games exclusively for Wii U. The game utilises the unique setup of the Wii U GamePad controller and the TV screen in innovative and exciting ways for a Wario experience like no other that will keep you coming back for more! Using only the GamePad you can play up to 12 Single Player games and can also share the fun with friends or family in an additional four different games in Multiplayer Mode!



Features:

In Single Player, there are 12 games to enjoy that turn your GamePad into a variety of different objects for different gameplay challenges.
In Camera, you're tasked with snapping photos of escaped criminals with your GamePad! The TV shows a busy street in Diamond City and holding up the GamePad allows you to take a closer look at the scene. Frame those crooks perfectly in your photos to catch them, and earn a high score!
In Gamer, take on the role of 9-Volt, a kid who's been sent to bed with his favourite handheld gaming system, but is desperate to get a high score... However his mum is trying to catch him in the act of staying up past his bedtime! While playing on the GamePad, you'll need to keep an eye on the TV screen to pretend to be fast asleep whenever his mum pounces!
Using only the GamePad you can share the fun with friends or family in 4 different games in the Multiplayer Mode!
In Fruit, up to 5 players play together in different roles: one player becomes a fruit thief, using the GamePad to work in secret as the others play agents and watch the TV screen to spot when the fruits disappear - made harder with bustling streets, passing traffic and smoky chimneys obscuring the view. At the end of the game, each of the agents pass around the GamePad to point out who they think is the thief; but only the most eagle-eyed may win as the line-up of would-be fruit thieves look rather similar!

Yes poor reviews and a serious lack of content from the reviews I have read.

what reviews have you read, its not due out for over 2 weeks. Looks like a laugh to me and if the other warioware games are anything to go by, well worth this price.

Edge gave it 6/10, which is not bad for them.

Review Scores from Japan seem pretty good -

Game & Wario (8/8/7/8, 31 out of 40 points): This Wii U minigame complication came out on March 28, but — as with a lot of WiiU titles — Famitsu didn't publish their review until pretty well after the game hit stores. One wonders if that has anything to do with the general disappointment that seeps through most of the reviewers' text blurbs.

"Only four out of the 16 games included are multiplayer," wrote editor Atsuhiro Fujiwara, "which may not feel like enough for some people. However, each game gets harder and offers up new gimmicks the more you get into them, so it's all pretty enjoyably. The game where you have to draw pictures based on topics and have people guess them is particularly exciting."

"Each game is engaging yet deep, making you want to try them again and again," added Urara Honma, the female writer among this week's review staff. "The multiplayer games are intricately balanced with just enough of a luck aspect to get things exciting. I really wanted more game types, though, especially some more games with that Wario-style silliness to them."

Very kind

decent price. worth bearing in mind this is less like the previous wario ware games...more mini games than micro games.

i might get it in a sale one day...does look like fun.
