Game & Wario was initially a tech demo showcasing the Wii U gamepad’s features at E3 2011. At the end of 2011, Nintendo decided that the game would be a full retail release as they had too many ideas to make it pre-installed software. The game also received a graphical facelift with Wario as the main character. Nintendo also launched Crowdfarter(A parody of Kickstarter) to encourage fans to promote the game via social media.
Game & Wario on the Wii U is one of the first to make me realise just how much of a difference High Definition makes. Everything is extremely crisp and colourful and puts you in such a great mood from the moment you press start. The variety of mini games show off a range of differing graphic styles. The sound is full of nostalgia and has the same addictive charm that I have come to expect from the WarioWare series. The presentation as a whole is extremely polished. It is clear that everything in the game was well thought out by the developers and it all works well together to make an extremely insane game.
