This just in from Nintendo......

Want to meet face-to-face with Nintendo’s newest game designer? It’s easy – just look in the mirror.
The new WarioWare™: D.I.Y. game for the Nintendo DS™ family of hand-held systems lets players
design their own microgames using artwork, animations and music limited only by the imagination.
Launching across North America on March 28, this creative game also lets players share their original
games wirelessly, giving fans of Nintendo’s top-selling portable systems a whole new way to create,
connect and enjoy.

WarioWare: D.I.Y. kick-starts the creative process with more than 90 built-in microgames that players
can unlock as they progress through the game. When users are inspired to create their own microgames,
they can choose from a library of ready-made graphics, sounds and game elements, or let their
imaginations run wild and build a whole new microgame from scratch.
“With WarioWare: D.I.Y., Nintendo is giving players a glimpse into the process of making video
games, providing them with the tools to bring their ideas to life and share them with friends,” said
Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “For anyone
who has ever wondered how their favorite video games came to be, this is sure to be a fun and
rewarding experience not to be missed.”
WarioWare: D.I.Y. players who own a Wii™ console and have broadband Internet access can extend
the action into their living rooms. By downloading the WarioWare: D.I.Y. Showcase game, launching
March 29 for Nintendo’s WiiWare™ service, they can access more than 70 additional microgames and
experience the hand-held games they created with their Nintendo DS systems on a full-sized TV
screen. There’s also an unlockable multiplayer mode that lets up to four players enjoy microgames
together (additional controllers required and sold separately).
WarioWare: D.I.Y. for Nintendo DS offers several ways for players to share content on the go. Using a
local wireless connection, they can swap microgames they’ve created on their own Nintendo DS
system. For users with broadband Internet access, Nintendo will make new microgames available for
download after launch and will occasionally challenge players to create microgames based on a given
theme. A broadband Internet connection also enables players to upload items to their online Storage
Crate and share those items by exchanging friend codes with other WarioWare: D.I.Y. users.

The new Nintendo DSi XL™ system adds to the experience of making your own microgames by
making WarioWare: D.I.Y. larger than life. Nintendo DSi XL has screens that are 93 percent bigger
than those on the Nintendo DS Lite system, and include the ability to be viewed from a side angle, in
case you want to show off your game creations to a friend.
Both WarioWare: D.I.Y. and Nintendo DSi XL go on sale on March 28. For more information about
