Now Available for Wii U, Game & Wario is Even Better Than Wario Himself!


VANCOUVER, B.C., June 24, 2013 – Sound the trumpets! Unleash the doves! Let the parades begin! The moment people have been waiting for is finally here! No, Wario is not making his debut as an underwear model … he reached his Crowdfarter goal of 100 katrillion coins, which means his new game, Game & Wario, is now available on the Wii U console! Game & Wario is the world’s first action-platform-sketching-puzzle-shooting-design-rhythm-sports game and uses the Wii U GamePad controller in amazingly awesome ways. It was also designed by Wario himself … so how could it not be spectacular?

“SPOILER ALERT!” said Wario, a man known for spoiling many things. “MY GAME IS SO AMAZING THAT IT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE! WAHAHAHAHA!”

Game & Wario is composed of 16 unique games that demonstrate the creative power of second-screen gaming on Wii U. According to Wario, games that contain 16 games are scientifically proven to be 15 times better than games that only feature one game.* Players can enjoy Pirates, a game starring Wario dressed as a handsome pirate; Arrow, a game that uses arrows shaped like Wario’s glorious nose; and a ton of other awesome games that are all packed into a box that has Wario’s face on it. Summary: This game is all about Wario so of course it is amazing.

These are only a few examples of the 16 games in Game & Wario. Imagine even more of these creative and fun games, plus dozens upon dozens of bonus prizes that you can get in the game’s rewarding CLUCK-A-POP capsule dispenser – a chicken-shaped machine that dispenses some of the wackiest prizes that … wait, why are we even explaining what this is? It’s a giant capsule machine shaped like a chicken – that’s all that matters!

Each of the games in Game & Wario is presented in a beautiful art style and stars one of the many charming employees that work with Wario at WarioWare, Inc. Characters like Mona, Jimmy T, Dribble and Spitz make their debuts on the Wii U console. Each one is incredible in his or her own way. Not that we are suggesting anyone is more awesome than Wario.

Between the numerous games, the wild uses of the GamePad controller, the trademark humor the Wario games are known for and the fact that Wario’s handsome, chiseled, mustachioed face is on the box of the game, what’s not to love about Game & Wario? The game is now available in stores and in the Nintendo eShop on Wii U.
