Available Now Coming Feb 14, 2005
The greediest, most ruthless CEO ever gets touchy-feely with the DS.
Wario makes his mad debut on the Nintendo DS with 180 all-new, factory-fresh microgames!
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 microgames.
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 treasure.
Microgame MadnessSome of the many all-new microgames include:
- Shakedown Knock the fruits from the trees.
- Pet Petter Pet a dog or cat. Awww!
- Washed Up Make like a mom and scrub a kid's dirty face.
- Quite Puzzled Slide the panels to complete the picture.
- Got the Chops Slice the veggies, chop-chop!
- Crowd Control Hey, you're a superstar with no time for groupies. Blow 'em off!
- Fresh Squeezed Milk the cow.
- Pro Bowling You get three balls to knock down the pins, which may be in strange formations.
Easily one of the most inspired and unpredictable games on the GBA, WarioWare makes the leap to the DS in fine style. Touch the madness at a store near you now!
