Frantic sets of microgames have been the standard of every entry in the WarioWare series, forcing gamers to assess and complete outlandish objectives at a frightening pace. While each title has its own "gimmick" with its microgames (e.g. Twisted!'s motion sensor), WarioWare Touched! and WarioWare:...

Before we get with the post, a note of thanks to all the commenters that, until this morning at least, were very civil and kind in their discussion of this week's webcomic wrapup. Sure, we've all thought about the dirty things Wario would make us do if Smooth Moves was not an all-ages Nintendo ti...

The Japanese pop star is none other than Ayumi Hamasaki, who is (according to her Wikipedia page) one of the country's most famous singers. Well, for how famous she is, she's not used any of her wealth or free time to master the minigames in WarioWare: Smooth Moves. She flops many of the minigames...

Nintendo has been bestowed the proud honor of a Spielwarenmesse award, selected as the 'Trend + Lifestyle' winner of this year's annual Nuremberg International Toy Fair. Judges chose the Wii console along with "Wario Wear" for the duo's ability to "encourage playing PC games in groups instead of a...

A short Aussie TV spot has hit the intertron for WarioWare: Smooth Moves. Showing a trio of young ladies demonstrate some of the movements the game demands, each with their own cute name (like The Samurai above), the brisk commercial does a good job of stirring up excitement for the game. It'll be...

Weally. In posting his impressions of Wario Ware: Smooth Moves, Chris Kohler at Game|Life adds yet another title to his 4:3 Hall of Shame. Joining Rayman: Raving Rabbids and Trauma Center: Second Opinion, Wario's waggle-fest only supports a 4:3 display ratio, generally known as fool fullscreen. Whil...

Smooth Moves is certainly no 'Game of the Year,' but it's hard to imagine a Wii owner who won't be adding this game to the collection. It's almost a necessity, as it unlocks all of the wonderful, albeit odd, potentials of Wii's technology. WarioWare is a madcap tutorial tool. It's unfortunate, as...

Gamers have WarioWare on the mind; yesterday's multiplayer footage is today's most-watched YouTube game video. But Wario haters, don't think you're out of Wario's woods yet. After a long debate, with lots of wild gesturing, we decided that the most-viewed GameTrailers video -- also WarioWare -- wo...

Siliconera breaks down the 12-person gameplay of WarioWare: Smooth Moves on the Wii, including a video of the various games. The main multiplayer matchup requires players to pass a controller between the up-to-12 players when it's the next person's turn. (That seems to make more sense than trying to...

Siliconera has uploaded a video explaining how twelve person multiplayer is going to work. First, everyone makes an angel, then the game randomly chooses an angel and makes them play a minigame. In full-on elimination style, the last angel standing comes out the victor. We've embedded Siliconera...

In this latest video for WarioWare: Smooth Moves (which is embedded into the post past the jump, as always), we get a good glimpse at one of the game's lengthier minigames. A rhythm-based, dancing exercise, this minigame looks pretty fun. We already knew that we would be picking this up, but it's ...

Yes, these Fusion Tour events have been going for several weeks now, I know. And you've probably read plenty of impressions, too. But not from Nintendo Wii Fanboy, you didn't, so grab a mug of hot cocoa and your favorite fuzzy slippers. It's time to read. I, like most of you, had never played with t...

Coming at us again with yet another video from their local Nintendo Fusion Tour stop, the guys at Go Nintendo take a crack at WarioWare Smooth Moves this time around. A few minigames have already been revealed, however most interesting is the Japanese equivalent to Driving Miss Daisy in boss fight...

Smooth Moves is aesthetically identical to its handheld predecessors. The demo saw us fumbling through a dozen or so of the new microgames, all motion-controlled (no button presses) with the Wiimote. The fickle connection between the Wiimote and its sensor was immediately apparent. It took several g...

TIME recently spent a "hot minute" with Wii's WarioWare. It's more of the same, that is, "manic five-second mini games ... [with] a zany, cartoonish, game- show bent," but now it's all controlled with the wiimote. Just imagine the (reinvented) possibilities: Swat flies Squat-thrusts (weightlif...
