Bear Box Media, developer of Internal Invasion, is currently working on U Host, a game that lets you create your own game show experience.

U Host is coming exclusively to the Wii U and will let up to 5 players, or 4 teams, compete while one person hosts the game show using the Wii U GamePad. The host will use the Wii U GamePad to get the show going, while contestants use Wii Remotes and/or Pro Wii U Controllers to participate in the fun.

These game shows can consist of answering over a 1000 questions from 10 pre-set categories, or you can create your own experience in 2 blank categories to be decided by you. There are also over 20 mini-games for contestants to play if you want to get away from the questions for a bit.

U Host encourages hosts to make up their rules, which could include some adult beverages, to create their own intriguing experiences. One such feature that can add some entertainment to the mix is the ability to block out the buzzers of specific players.

U Host is currently scheduled to release on the Wii U eShop this holiday season.

Alph from Pikmin 3 will be an alternate skin for Olimar. Alph, however, is being titled Alph and seems to count more as another character as opposed to just an alternate skin. It’s worth noting that Alph seems to be bigger than Olimar, which may be one of the only differences between the two.
