Further details of the small games in Wii Play (or Hajimete no Wii if you're of a Japanese disposition) have been announced. A wiimote will come with the game in Australia, Europe and Japan. The game lineup looks something like this:
Table Tennis: This is Ping Pong for 1 or 2 players, rallies are conducted using the wiimote. Miis are supported.
Laser Hockey: A hi-tech looking version of Air Hockey. It's a 2 player game where players move their wiimote up and down in an attempt to deflect the puck into their opponents goal. The ball can be aimed using a twisting motion. The developers say the physics used in this game for collisions are extremely sophisticated. Nintendo bigwig Shigeru Miyamoto even stated it was comparable to the Havok physics engine in realism.
Fishing: Players use the wiimote as a fishing rod to hook specific paper fish in the pond. With an upwards yank on the controller they can be hoisted out of the water. Yoink.
Find Mii: Crowds of Miis gather on screen and the player has to find the Wii that corresponds to clues given.
Pose Mii: Players use the wiimote to transform their Miis into certain poses and positions on screen depicted by transparent Miis.
Shooting: Basically Duck Hunt using the wiimote.
Pool: Players use the wiimote as they would a pool cue, pulling it back and following through to take shots. Viewpoints can be from above in 2D or behind the ball in 3D.
Charge!: The player steers a bull by holding the wiimote sideways, as is typical for racing games on the Wii.
Tanks: Take control of a tank with the wiimote. Aim the cannon and fire shells at enemy tanks.
