New Wii U Party game uses GamePad in new ways

It looks interesting, yes, but...
...I can't help but feel that it will not be as accessible as these sorts of games were on the wii. Might consider it if it comes bundled with a wii u game pad, though, which was pretty much the reason people bought the original wii party; for the wii remote that came with it.

When I saw this I thought to myself "Is... is that 'Finger Twister'?". It looked great. I also liked the little base ball and talble football game which se's the two players just using the two analogue sticks to play against eachother with just the GamePad. It reminded me of the 'Go' example from the E3 2011 promo. i'm hoping that the game will feature loads of examples of this kind of gameplay.
