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 to a leaked fact sheet that managed to sneak out onto the internet only one day after Nintendo's newest 2D platformer, Wario Land Shake, was revealed in Japan. So far, the word is that this 2D action game will feature cel-shaded characters and hand-drawn backgrounds and art.
The folks at NeoGAF used their decoder rings to reveal that there will be 20 stages in various vistas (desert, jungle, ocean) where you'll get the chance to use vehicles like rockets and submarines in gameplay. And, if you couldn't guess by the name, shaking the Wii Remote will permit special actions like rattling enemies for coins or unlocking secret locations.
For now, all we know is that this title will be released in Japan some time in 2008, and it will cost 5,800 yen ($50). Oh, and that Wario is the star.

Does this title interest you? Do you remember the first Wario platformer?
