WarioWare: Get It Together! has already been out for almost two months now (seriously, where does the time go?) but Nintendo's still busy plugging the game with the occasional social media post. And for good reason – it's excellent and deserves your time.
We can't help but notice that there's a bit of a dastardly theme going on with the title's current marketing, though. You see, fitting in perfectly with Wario's mischievous persona, Nintendo's been using the old bait-and-switch to trick fans into thinking they're watching content based on other Nintendo games. Then BAM, Wario swoops in and it's all been a big lie. Naughty.
Here's what we mean – check out this intriguing Splatoon 2 result video...
Or how about this bit of Mario footage? Will Mario get past Bow– oh...
OK, here's some calming Animal Crossing gameplay. What's in the ball– never mind.
It's all a little bit cheeky, but we must admit it's clever. For those who haven't played Get It Together!, these small ads are referencing the fact that Wario's latest game includes a number of Nintendo-themed microgames – as the footage shows, Wario and friends can be found inside other Nintendo universes causing their usual mayhem in special little games.
Other microgames in WarioWare: Get It Together! include ones based on Metroid, Fire Emblem, Ice Climber and more. If any of these pop up on your feed over the next few days, be very wary of a surprise Wario appearance!
WA HAH HAH HAH!
haha thats really fun, really captures the spirit of wario while misleading in a harmless way
And if you click on one of their Wario Ware tweets you get taken to a video of Waluigi singing “Never gonna give you up”
Forget Super Smash Bros., this is the ultimate video game crossover.
@DonutBurger I get the sarcasm, but every time I actually try to forget Super Smash Bros, this title automatically goes to Namco x Capcom and its followups.
This reminds me of those trailers for Llio & Stitch, where Stitch would invade Disney movies like Aladdin and The Little Mermaid.
I actually find these hilarious!!!
These are great. I love the subtle airhorn in the background. Just goes to show that some memes never truly die
Always love to see a bit of humour from Nintendo!
@nhSnork That makes sense.
