We're pretty sure that a number of Nintendo fans have a soft spot for Wario. The overweight, gold-loving and wacky trouble maker began life as a villain, but has gradually become the face of his own quality platformers and some wacky minigame collections.

As a character his history is rather interesting, as he's effectively served as a front for creative and slightly rebellious development teams. Though this most recent hardware generation has been quieter for the character we hope that he'll rise to prominence again in years to come.

In any case, Did You Know Gaming has done its usual work to reveal interesting facts and details around the character - check it out below.
