First footage of Wario Land: Shake It! makes me a happy shark

2:18 AM on 07.04.2008 // Hamza CTZ Aziz

I had mixed feelings when Wario Land: Shake It! was first announced for the Wii. The last DS Wario adventure title was such garbage that I feared Nintendo would continue to ruin one of my favorite characters of all time. Thanks to GoNintendo, though, my fears have been put to rest. 
The official Japanese Web site for Wario Land: Shake It! just opened up and contains a bunch of stuff that I can’t read or understand. Not that it matters, as there are two videos on the site that pretty much explain it all. RawMeatCowboy from GoNintendo graciously put the videos up on YouTube, one of the gameplay and one of the prologue to the story of Shake It! 
Watching the gameplay trailer above just makes me think of the original Game Boy games, which were all awesome. Wario uses his powerful muscles and brute strength to take on his enemies. But when that’s not enough, he’ll be hopping into ships, submarines, and more to get as much treasure as possible. It also looks like there will be some Yoshi's Island mechanics, as Wario will pick up enemies, aim them, and then throw them. Hopefully the “Shake It” portions of the game don’t get too repetitive or annoying. 
The anime-style prologue video explaining what Wario has gotten himself into is after the jump.
Some evil fiend (who sort of looks like Booster from Super Mario RPG) has brought darkness to the world and captured what most likely is that world's Princess along with her disciples. One brave disciple looks for a hero to save their kingdom but ends up with Wario instead. The little bird ... thingy ... tries to get Wario to help, but of course, Wario doesn’t give a fuck and picks his nose. That is, until money is brought into the equation.
I am so happy now. Shake It! looks like it will be really good and make up for the last few fail Wario games (not counting the WarioWare games, of course; those have all been awesome). Now that you’ve seen this in action, what do you think of it?

A Nintendo rep gave this to me today because she likes talking to me. I do have lots of the Old AC eReader cards I guess I could put in it... [img][/img]

I'm still trying to figure out how to do it, but for the most part I like what I've seen of the new blog editor. My first blog post using it should go up tomorrow.

Daily VGM #20 (Bonus) - Valak Mountain Night (Xenoblade Chronicles) [youtube][/youtube] This theme perfectly captures the essence of Valak Mountain. It feel serene and calm, as well as mountain-esque (lol).

What does one do when MGS V has lost its luster and Persona 4: DAN is growing stale? Listen to Queens of the Stone Age, of course. And wonder; is Steins;Gate worth the asking price? I want it, but not sure if I $30 - $40 want it...

Been in a bit of a rut this week and as such haven't really been satisfied with any of my games. Therefore, I'm going to start Destiny again on my new PS+ account. Any tips given the amount of updates it's had?

Bought a used knockoff game console called the Power Kracker 2013, which claimed to have 76,000 games. The AC adapter was missing and someone had crammed an off-brand GameCube controller inside the box. I don't know what I expected.

I actually love the quests in Novigrad where you write a play. It's a fun and lighthearted break from the tragedy of Baron and horror of Velen and the Crones.

I preordered Tales of Zestria and Disgaea 5 because they were £10 cheaper that way, WHO WANTS TO FIGHT ME HUH?

Man, plague of shadows is gooood. It really fleshes out plague knight and the world by extension, and it has some fun story stuff. Plus plague knight plays differently enough to shovel knight to make whats old feel new again. Deep customization too.
