I-U

WarioWare looks like it's back! The new WarioWare wasn't my favorite announcement from the Direct, but I definitely want to have this game on release. Looking forward to the replay value of this game, seeing how each character plays within each microgame. September is going to be a fun one! Anyone else looking forward to the new WarioWare?

I'm excited for another brand new Warioware game. The only thing I wish they did was make it to where you can play online with other people.. but it only really supports local wireless and co-op gameplay.

(Insert creative or cool phrase here.)

Totally a big highlight for me. Still working out my preorder schedule but I will be putting coins down on this soon. Love the idea that the characters control differently.

A pity that they chose full voice-acting again, but at least its a new Warioware. They haven't given up on the series. Hopefully there's enough single-player content. Hopefully it won't be download-only. And people, this WILL cost 50 Dollar/Euro's. Take it or leave it.

I'm not immediately sold on the new mechanic - I like the variety of control schemes you normally get in WarioWare - but I'm still very excited for a new game in the series.

I really hope they are going to add touchscreen and motion control microgames. I think these work very well with this kind of game.

The game looks really cool. No online co-op is a disappointment and would be better justify the price imo.

I'm kind of surprised Nintendo decided Warioware should have a new game.

Exactly! We should've seen it coming.

Since when was the House of WMario known for its subtlety?

Definitely excited for this game. It won't be day one, but I certainly will pick it up down the line.

I posted this in the Switch forum, but realizing it’ll probably get more discussion in the WarioWare thread, I’m just going to share it here.

So, Metroid Dread is obviously eating up a lot of attention right now, and rightfully so. We’ve also acknowledged Cruis’n Blast and its significance. But another title announced that maybe hasn’t been talked about quite as much, is WarioWare Get It Together.

It wasn’t that long ago that if you’d asked me what my thoughts were on the WarioWare series, I would have said it looked like shovelware. I had never played the series aside from Game & Wario on the Wii U, and my impressions from that game were… not great. There were some interesting ideas but it just wasn’t that fun to play. As a result, I chronically overlooked the series for years, similar to WarioLand (but that’s another discussion).

Then WarioWare Gold released on 3DS. And being a late release, and me being a 3DS collector, I wanted to grab it because I knew the physical run would be in low quantity. And since I grabbed it, I of course decided to play it and give the series another shot. And wow. It was not what I was expecting. It wasn’t anything like Game & Wario on Wii U. It had rapid fire microgames that took 5-10 seconds each, and they were incredibly addicting! You’d do one and it was onto the next, then onto the next, and on to the next. The games were creative, zany and all of them put you on the spot, requiring you to think on your feet and react fast. It may not sound that impressive by description or even by watching gameplay, but in practice it’s actually really hard to put down.

And that’s when I realized I had foolishly misjudged the series based on one bad entry. I really did love WarioWare Gold. It was the perfect compilation of micro games, and great send off for the touch based entries up to that point.

Now we have WarioWare Get It Together, and it’s back to button controls like the GBA entry, which I like. It also lets you control characters on the screen such as Wario and friends, and even offers 2p on the same system via split joycon. This is exactly the kind of game the switch needs. Of course we all love Mario and Zelda and Splatoon and Fire Emblem and Xenoblade and all the mainstays. But it’s that second tier of IP that really makes a Nintendo catalog pop. The Metroids, the WarioWares, the Mario Golfs, the Advance Wars, the Rhythm Heavens, etc… the less popular properties that help diversify from the mainstays (though it is my desire as many of these become mainstays as possible, particularly Metroid and WarioWare).

I’m so glad we’ve finally reached a point in the Switch’s lifespan where the install base is large enough they feel comfortable shifting to their second tier properties. And given how well games are doing on Switch, this is a perfect opportunity for them to shine, and for many of these series to break through into mainstays

@JaxonH I honestly don't consider Game and Wario a Warioware title. Mainly because it never really says "Wario Ware" on the title, and the only real thing it has in common is using the characters. I'm also with you on Gold being one of the hardest games to put down. I bought it 2 years ago when it first came out, and it honestly doesn't feel like it's been that long. I still play it every now and then, and it's really addicting to try and reach a new high score on all the microgames.

I'm honestly already sold, and the price isn't really much of an issue. Heck, I'd buy a Wario Ware game at full price.

I’m insulted that I didn’t get a survey, but perhaps Nintendo’s survey-sending algorithms already knew that my love for Wario is boundless... eternal...

Why, what's wrong with voice acting? Isn't that a good thing that they made the effort to include full voice acting rather than just text boxes?

@Clyde_Radcliffe

I know it sounds weird since most of the time I am all for voice-acting. But this voice-acting just didn't do it for me. Wario saying full sentences all of a sudden. Jimmy saying full sentences. I just want the obnoxious grunts from Wario and his simple phrases. Same with Jimmy. Same with every character. Wich makes me wonder: If Mario in his own upcoming animated movie is full voice-acted by Charles Martinet, how will I feel about that? Hmmm.

Ah okay, fair enough. Mario Sunshine had full voice acting, although even in that Mario himself barely spoke! It would be weird, I agree.

My main worry with the new Wario Ware is that you play as the characters in this one. I'm very concerned it will make all the minigames feel the same and like a sort of platformer and that things like brushing the teeth will feel less satisfying! It also could limit the crazy minigames we have. Hope I'm wrong.

WarioWare Gold had voice acting and I loved it. I can understand the hesitancy toward it for long running franchise, but this is a series that doesn’t take itself too seriously and I think it fits well.

I’ve been thinking about controlling the characters vs control styles of past entries. We’ve had everything from button controls for mini games, stylus controls, microphone, gyro and all combinations among them.

I think controlling the characters actually makes the microgames slightly more involved. Instead of pressing a single button once, or slashing the touch screen, you have to use to Dpad to move the character around in combination with a button. Or use the analog to aim in combination with a button. I think the devs needed a change because you kinda start running dry on ideas when you’re constantly making games with the same type of control setup for 15 years. WarioWare Gold was like the capstone to the series up to that point, and now they’re able to be a little more creative because they can create games based around a different set up than before. It also lends itself well to two player co-op, even though I probably won’t use it. I like the idea and hopefully I’ll get my brother to play sometime, but I’ll probably be playing this mostly solo. Still, good for others cause I know Switch is designed around instant co-op on the spot.

I also really like how you choose different characters and they all control differently. Some characters fly, some are grounded and jump, some are stationary and shoot. That adds a lot of replayability to the games, because you can play the same micro game with 10 different characters and have to beat it 10 different ways. It also means they had to design these games in such a way that they could be beaten regardless of character used. Some might make them harder and some might make them easier. That’s really cool.
