Wahhh-ree-oh!: Nintendo reveals Wario Land: Shake It! for Wii

8:24 AM on 06.25.2008 // Nick Chester

We first brought you news of this upcoming side-scroller back in May, but today Nintendo has officially revealed Wario Land: Shake It! for North American release.

The game appears to mix classic side-scrolling platforming with Wii Remote functionality. Shaking the remote will cause Wario to take out enemies, loot treasures, and cause earthquakes. Nintendo says the game has multiple stages and missions, with many unlockables that will keep players coming back to collect more coins or just improve their best play times. Could Shake It! also include online leaderboards? 

Wario Land: Shake It! is already dated for a September 29, 2008, release. Any game where we get to hear Wario whine, groan, and cackle is worth some pre-order dollars. We can't be the only ones clipping pictures of Wario out of Nintendo Power and hanging them on our walls, right?
