Following Nintendo's surprise announcement of Wario Land Shake for the Wii yesterday, new details have come our way on the game.
Wario's latest adventure looks like it's being designed with both casual and hardcore gamers in mind. A side-scrolling platformer, the game makes use of 2D artwork to depict its characters and stages. The game promises a total of 20 stages, taking you through all the expected environments, including jungles, deserts, and caves.
Controls have been kept simple, with the Wiimote held horizontally and most of the action controlled with the D-pad and the 1 and 2 buttons. Nintendo is including some waggle controls as well. Shake the Wiimote up and down, and you can make Wario perform a few extra moves, like shaking coins free from an enemy you've grabbed onto. The Wiimote can also be tilted to control vehicles.
As revealed yesterday, Wario Land Shake will hit the Japanese Wii on July 24. A release outside of Japan has yet to be announced.
