The release date for the upcoming Wii U title, Game and Wario, has finally been confirmed for Japan. The game will release on March 28, 2013. If you’re not familiar with the game, it’ll be a minigame collection, similar to Mario Party. Nintendo Japan has stated that the game will cost around 4,700 yen, or $52 bucks over here. I’m sure WarioWare fans are excited that the game has gotten a release date, even if it’s for Japan only.
There hasn’t been any information regarding the game’s western release. The game was announced back at E3 2012, and it was originally scheduled for the Wii U’s launch, or it’ launch window. Of course it’s not surprising that every game that was scheduled for launch doesn’t make it, but it doesn’t seem like the game will be stuck in limbo forever. I’m expecting the game to come to the west maybe a couple of months after it’s eastern release. The WarioWare games have always been popular, but I never really got into the games. I always preferred the Mario Party games over it, but I want to see more on the new game. The Wii U has had a number of great announcements this week, and it seems like it’s only getting better.
