Wario Land: Shake It! is a return to 2D goodness

By Spencer . July 21, 2008 . 4:25pm

Wario Land: Shake It! didn’t appear in Nintendo’s press briefing and it wasn’t on the show floor. The game was tucked away in Nintendo’s appointment room where only a select few got to play it before it comes out in Japan.

Nintendo hasn’t said much about Wario Land Shake. The game seemed to spring out of nowhere through Japanese retail fliers instead of a proper announcement. Japan is getting a chance to play the 2D platformer on July 24. This is the kind of game Nintendo is likely to release worldwide. The PG rating that suddenly […]

Wario Land Shake and Rhythm Tengkou Gold confirmed by Nintendo for July

By Spencer . May 28, 2008 . 1:32am

There are exceptions with major franchises like Mario and Zelda, but otherwise release dates pop out of thin air.   Kotaku posted a rumor […]
