WarioWare: Mega Microgames on the GameBoy Advance was released almost twenty years ago. Soon we can enjoy a fresh ration of microgames with WarioWare: Get It Together on the Switch.
A work that was recently unveiled during Nintendo’s E3 presentation and that caught most users completely off guard, because it was possible to view a fairly long playtime that took place in the TreeHouse that Nintendo typically makes available during the event’s celebration.
In this playtime, all Nintendo fans learned in-depth about the new elements that will be included in this version and saw in action some of the new microgames that we can look forward to playing.
A bunch of crazy microgames
For those who are unfamiliar, WarioWare encourages us to engage in waves of mini-games that last only a few seconds (3 or 4 most of the time) and need us to do actions that are as easy as they are often ludicrous. Brushing a character’s teeth, conducting a face peeling, evading bird’s excrement dropping from the top of the screen, and other foolishness are just some examples.
There will be around 200 of these tests included in the cartridge, which has made us quite happy because some of us were worried that the structure of this release would be like a base game with 20 or 30 microgames incorporated as normal + paid DLC packs with the same amount of them. But that’s not the case.
That’s not the end of the good news since, although being a pretty consistent release, it will also include numerous new features, some of which are rather substantial. The most significant change will be the inclusion (for the first time in this series) of a dual cooperative mode, both locally and on the same console, with one Joy-Con per player.
These new elements are completely in line with the WarioWare philosophy and have the potential to elevate the enjoyment that may be provided by their entertaining and humorous challenges to even greater heights.
In addition to the usual fast game modes, it was discovered that this iteration would have a story mode in which Wario will be submerged in his own invention. A reason, like any other, to appreciate a story that is as simple and strange as it is humorous. Some users who have never experienced this series may find the urge that many gamers have to join again in the wonderful microgames that Wario has always provided.
However, novice players should not assume that it is an easy and casual game. Regardless, WarioWare games are always a lot of fun. And in the case of this work, which will be released on September 10, the intriguing improvements that will be included, as well as the new collection of mini-games, will be reason enough to keep WarioWare: Get It Together with us.
