Wii U is the ultimate party machine. While party games may have a bad name thanks to titles such as Carnival Games and Game Party, as any Mario Kart fan will tell you there's nothing better than having four players crowded around the telly for some multiplayer racing fun. Now, with the GamePad, you can add an extra player to the mix! But what will be the best Wii U multiplayer games? It's hard to say until we've played big blockbusters online but, from what we've played and seen so far, these are the games that promise to make the best use of the GamePad.
10. Scribblenauts Unlimited
First-person shooters like Aliens: Colonial Marines promise to be big on the online multiplayer scene but we don't know much about the Wii U features so we have to focus on the games we do know about.
One of these is Scribblenauts Unlimited which is the first game in the series to feature co-op multiplayer. The best thing about the multiplayer mode is that it is the first to give you the opportunity to actually control the items that appear after you've scribbled them down on your Wii U GamePad (AKA Maxwell's magical notebook).
So it will be possible to control a barbaric blue beetle or a giant genteel jeep. Can't say we've ever done that in a game before.
