Wario Ware News

What’s so special about WarioWare: Smooth Moves? That’s what Goro Abe, creator of the WarioWare series, was discussing with IGN recently.

Abe states that Smooth Moves prompts the player for specific remote-wielding position before starting each five-second challenge. Abe expects there to be about 200 microgames in total, much like in previous entries in the series. The other games were an absolute blast to play and wer ethe ultimate party games.

For multiplayer, Abe says that while there won’t be any form of online multiplayer included in the title, there will be several ways to play locally: “...because we are only using one controller we would like to create a multiplayer entertainment atmosphere by having one player playing the game and the other people being entertained by looking at that person. Then we would like to have a mode where we will have one remote, but it will be passed onto the next player and they will race their micro-game times. And another plan we have is to connect the nunchuck to the Wii remote and have one player hold onto the Wii remote and the other the nunchuck, and cooperate to proceed through the game.”

Smooth Moves will support progressive scan but is not currently slated to have 16:9 widescreen, and the game is expected to be reelased within the first ninety days of launch, but Abe couldn’t specify the date any further than that. While the online feature is a little bit of a let down, I still cannot wait for the game. As always, we will keep you updated.
