Waluigi Time!! is a game for the Nintendo VR. It is the first in the Waluigi Time!! series. The gameplay is somewhat similar to the WarioWare, Inc. series, yet it can also be compared to the New Super Mario Bros. series. The game was released only in Japan on the 1st of January, 2007.
Plot from the official website:

Waluigi is taking the spotlight tonight! Yeah, I am! I was just taking a walk to take the spotlight, when I saw Wario hosting a game show. Without me! So I asked if I could join him, but he said no! So I said we're no longer friends and I stormed off. I went to make a game show of my own, "Waluigi Time!!" and it worked! I created nine worlds, hired nine people, who have seven minigames each! It would help me so much if you played my game!

It has been rumored that there will be a sequel. In a recent interview on Waluigi Time!!, Iwata asked if Miyamoto was planning on continuing the series. He responded with "Well, although the first game wasn't a big success, I think we'll try." In an interview for WarioWare: Smooth Moves, Miyamoto stated that they have begun making the game, but it's in early production. In an interview for Super Mario Galaxy 2, he mentioned that the title is Waluigi Time!! 2: Make It, Play It. In early September, an interview for Game & Wario (working title) was held. Iwata asked when Waluigi Time!! 2: Make It, Play It was being released, in which he responded with "Well, we wanted to release it sooner, but unfortunately we have to release it only in Japan on November the 16th, 2012."
