Wario makes his mad debut on the Nintendo DS with 180 all-new,
What really makes this game rock is the DS's touch control. Whether
you're slicing veggies flying through the air or ripping the clothes off
a sweltering beachgoer, the touch control makes playing Wario's
blazingly fast microgames so simple, even a nintendo.com writer can
figure 'em out.
Did we only say "touch"? Sorry, we forgot mic control. Yep, a
karaoke-mad robot named Mike is on hand to get this party going with
special mic-controlled games. For the absolutely first time in
video-game history, you can blow sweet nothings into the ear of that
someone special or cool off a cup of hot java.
The Usual Gang of Wing Nuts
Touch the latest fruits from the bizarro developers of WarioWare Inc.
(GBA and Nintendo GameCube). Expect to make lots of spins and whirlpools
to win Dr. Crygor's Slightly Unscrewed microgames. Kickin'
kindergartners Kat and Anna return with a dojo's worth of Ninja Scribble
microgames. Scooter girl Mona has made a career move from the gelateria
to the pizza delivery business, but she's also found time to become a
pop diva and, of course, develop a whole new set of extremely cuuute
That madcap taxi-driving duo, Dribble and Spitz, and way-out alien
Orbulon return in wholly unpredictable supporting roles. Old-school
grade-schooler 9-Volt is joined by his big brother, 18-Volt, to make
five-second gems inspired by classic Nintendo games. This time, he's
even gotten inspiration from Gold Digger, one of the classier offerings
(not!) from WarioWare Inc. GBA.
Disco heartthrob Jimmy T. is back, along with his mom, dad, James
("Jimmy's chick-magnet brother"), Jamie ("Jimmy's disco-fabulous sis").
Remix masters James and Jamie each spins their favorite microgames.
New software developers this time are Ashley, a goth girl whose games
are a "Total Drag," and Mike, the aforementioned party robot. Ashley's
hilarious theme song is worth the price of admission by itself.
You can also feed a special something to Wario to create Wario-Man, who
looks like one of those masked Mexican wrestlers. "Faster than a
doughnut! Stronger than cardboard!" (we kid you not), Wario-Man's boss
battle challenges you to plumb the depths of someone's nose for buried
