Wario and his “champ” bring back microgames to Warioware: Together!


Warioware has made a brilliant comeback this morning with Nintendo’s E3 Direct. Warioware: Together! It features garlic-eating adversaries and a large amount of “champs” from previous games in the series. Wario himself narrated the trailer and announced the game and release date.

Built as a brand new game from Wario’s own developer, this new title continues to focus on the microgames that have become much more famous with Game Boy Advance. Classic scenarios such as squeezing a tube of toothpaste, avoiding bird droppings, and hitting a Marioland question mark block are shown.

This twist brings Warioware characters to the microgame. In microgames, players need to use different abilities to reach fast-paced goals. Wario is shown jumping and flying around to complete various micro-objects instead of running a simple one- or two-button solution. Each playable character has its own mobility and launch options, based on individual style and habits.

Recent games bring multiplayer into the series, Get It Together! Friends and family can also play together. A two-player mode was demonstrated in which each player controlled a different character in the cast. It’s unclear if the modes are cooperative or competitive, but the gameplay presented seemed to be both possible.

This is the first taste Switch owners have tasted Warioware on a hybrid console. The last microgame collection released is back in 2018 with the Nintendo 3DS WarioWare Gold. Gold was the biggest hit of the series’ past entries, collecting over 300 microgames in one package. See Warioware Gold reviews by Game Informer in anticipation of Get It Together.

Warioware pre-orders open today: Get It Together! It will be released exclusively on Nintendo Switch on September 10th.
