WarioWare:Photograph on the way to DSiWare

I'm a big fan of the WarioWare games, if only for the fact that they are incredibly strange (and remind me a little bit of Rhythm Tengoku). Imagine my delight, then, to hear that Nintendo has plenty of WarioWare coming to the...

Destructoid review: Wario Land: Shake It
by Jonathan Holmes

You know who's no one's all-time favorite videogame character? That's right, it's Wario. This Bizarro purple-nosed man-thing has been around for over fifteen years, and over that time some people have grown to like him, many have learned to tolerate him, but no one truly loves him.

Even still, Nintendo keeps giving this ugly man the spotlight, while handsome blokes like Kid Icarus and Little Mac remain chained to a radiator somewhere at Nintendo HQ. This past week, Nintendo actually put Wario head to head against Capcom's #1 guy for 2D platforming, as Wario Land: Shake It was released on the very same day as Mega Man 9. Whereas the new Mega Man game is very much a love letter to that character's low-tech, hardcore origins, this new Wario Land title is sort of a hand-drawn, high-res, waggle-enhanced reinvention of the Wario platformer.

If you want to know if I liked the game, then hit that jump and read my words.

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

 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...

Wii platformer Wario Land Shake details unveiled

I know: the text is in Japanese, the pictures are blurry, and there's only one page to look at. It's all we've got for now. But it's enough to get fans of Nintendo 2D platformers excited, myself included. Wiifanboy points us ...

You know what my favorite kind of art is? The kind that rips apart everything you're used to and are made by artists who were dropped on their heads into a lake of crack, meth and cocaine! So it's only natural that t...
