Releasing the non-color version of Wario Land 2 makes absolutely no sense. The two versions are identical apart from the added color, they're not going to purposefully release the inferior version.

I personally never really cared for the Wario Land games back in the day, though in fairness i haven't played any of them all that much, so my judgment may have been premature. I'll probably grab them if (when) they come to VC just to give them another shot, especially since they recieve so much platformer-praise.

Donkey Kong Land III was monochrome in the US and EU, but was only released in Japan a few years later and colorized.

Too bad there's no way they'll give us the color version. :(

On the subject of color games, apparently Pokemon Yellow was monochrome-only in Japan, but colorized elsewhere, too.

They haven't done it with Link's Awakening. So I don't see them doing it for Wario. Not unless they have plans to release it much later. No point really.

I'm dieing for WL2 & 3, and especially whenever I get my Dr.Wily mits on WL4. B-)
Wario Land Shake it! however is one of the wholy grails of 2D Platformers in my opinion, plus the original WL was just fantastic and easily trumps both Super Mario Land 1 & 2 combined...But my memories are a smidge wonky on that one, so it's best that go and Jumpstart my mega memories with that one whenever it hits the VC. :D

And speaking of the VC, does anybody here use the 3DS more for VC titles rather than actual 3DS games? :p
I still need to get Zelda OOT 3D & StarFox 3D mind you. Plus playing the 3DS in '3D' when you're beginning to get tired or are tired especially is a bad idea. The '3D' just isn't as noticable due to your eyes getting fuzzy/blurrier when you're tired. Durp!

Considering the lack of actual worthwile retail titles, I wouldn't be surpised if a majority of 3DS owners play more VC games than 3DS games. That kept in mind, I used my Wii for mostly VC games even when all the good stuff finally got out, so I could see myself doing the same for my 3DS, but only if they add more than just gameboy and gameboy color games to the VC list. We're still waiting for gamegear and NES titles. Not to excited for NES since I bought all the worthwhile NES games on my Wii, but there might be something good on game gear, Sonic 1 and Triple Trouble at least. I want GBA games.

I'm more likely to download the cheaper version of a game even it does mean losing out on colour.

£3.60 for black and white or £5.40 for added colour.

I could download the b&w version plus a £1.80 DSiWare game for the price of enjoying Wario Land II in colour.

I'd pay double the price just to have color :p
Different strokes I guess!. Either way I've already got WLII(GBC & the GB version) on cart. I'll be firing this baby up in a few muhahaha B-)

Is Warioland 1 really worth downloading? I only ever owned WL2 and I didn't enjoy it much as I did as with my other GB games I owned as a kid.

Do you enjoy old Mario games? If so then download Wario Land. Its completely different to Wario Land 2 & 3.

Worth doing some research on first. I got both Mario games for the GB, but I dont enjoy the warioland games. I've tried 1,2 and 3, and first impressions for all of them were that I didnt enjoy them. Having WL4 (Ambassador program), I can also say the same there.
So, no, not everyone believes Warioland is better than the mario games, and the hype for getting the first one in NA on the eShop is getting ridiculous.

I make Pixel Art on occasion.

Wario Land is a bit different than 2, it's a shorter, more polished, SMB-like and linear platformer. While 2 was good it just felt 'too long' for it's own good...The lack of an in-game map was dissapointing as well and i felt that the polish, art direction and visuals themselves weren't quite as appealing as the original Wario Land. If you didn't exactly enjoy 2, you still might like the original. I honestly don't know anybody can like SML2 over Wario Land. SML2's stage design and platforming was completely brain dead generic. The Kitchen sink level design was in full force and the controls felt wonky. Everything else however was brilliant. :p

Now if I'll excuse me, I've got a date with Wario Land 3 on my GBC. :D

Alright, I'm with Bass on this one. I've now played & beaten 1, 2 & Wario Land Shake it! Yet I'm currently playing 3 and i think it's safe to say that it's the weakest of the bunch. I like the world map, the fact that it's in color and even the visual style is simular to 2 yet it improves on a few things, plus i love Wario's booty shaking when he's wobbling up a ladder. :p

but it borrows too much from 2, and it loses a lot of the creative and interesting characters in the proccess and the level design doesn't feel quite as clever either. I'm only playing through the first 8 levels, and I'm pretty much stuck. I think I need to unlock one more treasure so i can get a power up/move wise so i can advance further. Bummer! :p Anyways, it's fun and everything but hmmm....Not to mention my GBA SP's headphone input adapter broke, so now i can't use my headphones. funkin great!

Anyways so far I'd rank th series like this....
WLSI! > 1 > 2 > 3

Yeah, Wario Land 2 was a step in a different direction but was still enjoyable. Wario Land 3 carried on doing what Wario Land 2 did but it wasn't as fun as the previous two. Its still better than many third party platformers on the GBC but for a Nintendo game, something was lacking.

Where do you rate Wario Land 4, WaveBoy? I quite enjoy that one.

Oh I haven't played WL4 yet, i do have it in my GBA colletion though. It looks absolutely gorgeous based on the commercials and videogame footage I've seen and it easily looks like the most imaginitive, bizzare and original Wario Land yet.

Anyways, I've only put maybe 2 hours into WL3 and like you said something seems like it's missing or lacking. Most of the enemies i've come across are pretty lame in comparison to 1 and 2's...The over use of little robots for example, and the worlds themselves don't seem quite as interesting. It's too early for me to say though. Maybe once i get more of Wario's actual moves I'll have a better time with it. I expected it to be a bit radically different than 2 considering 1 and 2 feel like quite the departure. But it feels more in tune with 2 with a splash of it's own semi half baked personality.

Like i said, it's great that the world map is back and i love the in game map animations or when you collect certain treasures that then unlock a certain stage or area within the map that bust out a little animated cutscene. Yet I think i may of ruined the twist to the game if there is one. Stupid YouTube showing the final boss on the riht hand of the video section. :p Why do i get the idea that the mysterious figure who you're taking orders from is that evil looking Clown which is the final boss of the game? ehh, don't even answer that. lol

Anyways, I feel like i have to push myself to play Wl3. It's not too compelling for the most part. Stage 8(That 2nd town) is a real pain in the butt.
I missed the platforming element of WL1 and Shake it instead of this giant puzzle within a level thing and the fact that you can't die...

PS Why is Wario's oufit White and black instead of Purple and yellow? Maybe he changes colors once he gradually gets his moves back.

Well, after spending more time with WL3 i've gotta say, I'm actually enjoying it a smidge more than WL2. :p I've gotta admit, WL2 began to feel like a tedious chore towards the end of the game, and those 2 awful uninspired mini games 'Number guessing' and 'memory' were a slap to the face.....They didn't fit the bizzare & creative mario mold in comparison to WL1's mini games and WL3's 'animal golf/kicking') I couldn't stand doing the WL2 mini games anymore, but I had to so i could 100% the game. Plus the lack of a map kind of hurt the experience for rme.

WL3 on the other hand shakes things up a lot, and i love how unlocking certain treasures effects the world map & stages. The game's in color and there just seems to be a bit more variety going on instead of doing the same thing all of the time. Part of that is because of how the stages can be effected by winning treasure, the fact that Wario gradually gains different moves throughout the game where you can then use those abilities to find Keys/treasure and coins that you couldn't in previous stages before and this and that. It's quite addiciing too! WL3 is officially on the shniz list of everything gnary and goolay' B-)

It seems like most WL fans label '2' as the weakest in the franchise, and i can kind of see why. While at it's core it's a great game....The terrible & boring mini games, having 'no' world map, and constantly having to find the stage's 'memory' mini game door' starts to feel like a chore.
