Game Freak's latest video feature revisits Mario & Wario

In their latest video, Game Freak revisits Mario & Wario, a title they developed for the Super Famicom. The title never saw release outside of Japan, which is a real shame! For the time, it was a pretty unique side-scrolling puzzler! At least Game Freak hasn't forgotten it!

WarioWare's Pyoro mini-game gets a fan-made port to N64

I am a really big fan of the Pyoro mini-game from WarioWare. I've actually poured a lot of time into the various iterations. Now there's one more way to play, and it's on the N64! One resourceful fan has put together a custom build of the game for the N64, which you can see in action via the GIF above. Man, I'd really love to give this a shot on the actual hardware!

Wario Land 3 hack adds in a 'Master Quest' mode

Man, remember when the Wario Land series was at thing? I'd love to see Nintendo release a new installment, but that doesn't seem too likely nowadays. While we wait for Nintendo to change their minds on that, one fan decided to hack together a new challenge for Wario Land 3 fans. The hack adds in a 'Master Mode,' with multiple levels modified to up the difficulty. New enemy placement, power-ups moved around, and other small tweaks to give you more of a challenge. While I'm sure Nintendo won't be happy these kind of tweaks are going on, I'm hopeful it'll show them that fans want more classic Wario!

Nintendo details the insane amount of work that went into WarioWare Gold

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.”
