WarioWare Gold...a quick cash-grab for Nintendo on the 3DS, right? Just group a bunch of WarioWare microgames into one package and call it a day. That's not the case at all, according to Nintendo's Goro Abe. A considerable amount of work went into compiling the content for this package.
“We basically redrew the art for all the microgames and reprogrammed them from scratch. A lot of the games that look unchanged at first glance actually have a lot of changes upon comparison. There are over 1,100 in total if you include everything from Smooth Moves, D.I.Y., and Game & Wario. I surveyed the staff to determine which games from these titles we should polish. Then, I ranked all of the microgames according to elements like which ones are appreciated by the staff through the survey, which ones have rules that are easy to understand, and which ones don’t feel old when played now.”
