    Possible reason as to why Wario hasn't had any platformers in over a decade?

    The division of Nintendo that made the game was dissolved in 2003, two of the three Wario Land directors had already retired by the time that happened, and the underwhelming critical reception and sales figures of the outsourced Wario games that followed probably meant nobody was much enthused...

    Why is Wario not in Mario games anymore?

    Brand control, behind-the-scenes ego struggles, not stepping over each others plan for their respective projects, etc etc. It's like, all marvel comics are set in the same fictional universe (mostly), but that doesn't mean the Spider-Man writer can have Iron Man randomly show up in the...

    Why is Wario not in Mario games anymore?

    Something among these lines is probably the correct answer, but rather than framing it as Miyamoto being a moustache-twirling egotist who wants to keep everything he personally didn't touch outside his games, it would be more accurate to say Nintendo is made up of multiple divisions with their...

    The strange case of the dissapearing WarioWare Gold Character Trailers

    NCL has an habit of privating their older youtube ads at seemingly random and for no apparent reason so if the western uploads aren't gone soon-ish (like say, within the week), that probably is just that. That they went out of their way to also delete tweets is *kinda* sus though, but I don't...

    The strange case of the dissapearing WarioWare Gold Character Trailers

    As you may know, back in 2018 after WarioWare Gold was released, Nintendo started uploading bi-weekly "character trailers" for WW Gold on its social media channels animated by Ko Takeuchi. They weren,t the most coherent or gorgeously-animated but they were a nice bit of fanservice. We don't...

    Pauline no, because she had actual ties to the Mario series proper, did a great job fleshing her out while adding nods to her origin. Rosalina in Galaxy 2 made *sense*, but the nature of it wasn't much meaningful. Is like, the WW characters don't have any meaningful tie to the Mario games...

    I dunno, I really can't think of a context where shoving recognizable DKC or WW characters in a 3D Mario wouldn't feel forced

    Wario Interviews/Development stuff repository

    The game did decent but not huge numbers in Japan considering its context of release. Its western performance (which doesn't appear to have been great based on the available data points) and how much the decision-makers value it is the big ?

    Wario Interviews/Development stuff repository

    Nevermind! Key points: -Some of the graphics in the original games were placeholders the team decided to keep because they felt they fit the spirit of the game -A new game is contingent on the success of WW Gold (uh oh) -WW Gold has voice acting because the team wanted to give players more...

    Anyone here got a Game Informer subscription? Turns out the December 2018 issue has a feature on WarioWare and the online preview for it has this quote from Goro Abe... ... which I assume relates to WW Gold, but the preview doesn't go that far. Would be know if there's more interesting stuff...

    which WW is the hardest?

    I didn't play Twisted yet so I can't fairly opine but are people opining "hardest" as in "first time playthrough to beat all the character stages" or "hardest to get high scores and do consistently well in"? Cuz while Touched may be slightly easier on a first time playthrough than most others...

    what's the most efficient way to get to 99,999 coins in the first wario land?

    Even if you get all the treasures you won't max out the coin counter and will need to grind quite a bit to get the best ending. All of them combined give around 700k iirc.
