Did You Know Gaming Explores The Origins Of Wario

by Elise Favis on Mar 12, 2016 at 10:03 AM

Today's new Did You Know Gaming segment is putting the spotlight on Wario and his subsequent games.

The video begins with exploring the earlier Wario Land games, such as Wario Land II. In this game, Wario staggers around uncontrollably after being hit by an enemy penguin's ball throws, which originally were pitchers of beer in the Japanese version. An intoxicated Wario went against Nintendo's censorship regulations, so the unsteady clumsiness seems more random in the Western port. The video covers a wide range of Wario topics, from the beginnings of the mini-game oriented WarioWare games, to the weird, misheard lyrics of Ashley's Theme in WarioWare: Touched! The video also touches upon Wario World on GameCube, including when Wario apologizes if you listen to his ear-splitting song for a long while.

If you're a fan of Wario, you should go have a look at our Wario World Replay.
