Hmmm...
To do:
  • Document the voiceover changes between the region variants.
  • There could be more unused graphics.

Wii Party is a Mario Party-like game that lets you play with Miis and play a ton of minigames!

It later got a Wii U sequel, Wii Party U.

This is an unused trap for Meet and Greet.

Unused Sounds

In the sound/stream folder, there are many Japanese voice clips, all beginning with the prefix V_TRUMP_KARTA. These were used on the minigame explanation screens in the Japanese version of the game. However, in the American version of the game, there are no voices on minigame explanation screens, so these files go unused.

Regional Differences

Hmmm...
To do:
Upload textures if possible.
  • The most notable regional difference is the addition of a House Party game exclusive to Asia. The game is called Quick Draw, and involves using real playing cards.
  • In the Korean release, the medals of Spin-Off have been changed to stars, most likely to not give off the "money" impression due to South Korea banning gambling and its elements in gaming.
  • In Globe Trot, the starting location changes depending on which regional version of the game you play.
  • In the Japanese and Korean version of Board Game Island, completing a "challenge" shows a blue circle, instead of a green check-mark.
  • The Japanese and Korean version of the minigame Dicey Descent have unique symbols to represent the left and right side of the platform.
  • In the minigame Flying Fruits, when the game is counting how many fruits it was giving out, the red circles around the fruit were changed to green "V" checkmarks in the European release. The reason for this is unknown.
  • In Match-Up, a large text saying "1人目", "2人目" (translated as first, second) temporarily appears on the center before the player gets a chance to find a Mii in the Japanese release. The international version removed the feature for unknown reasons.
  • In the part where the minigames' Wii Remote controls are being shown, the Japanese and Korean versions play a voice clip explaining how to hold the Wii Remote, vertical or horizontal.
  • When the minigame starts by counting from three to one, the Japanese and Korean versions also use voice clips (3, 2, 1, Start!) in addition to the sound effects.
