While gamers in America are just now getting their first sampling of Utsusu Made in Wario (aka Wario Ware Snapped), Japan is getting set for the next entry in the series. Actually, make that "entries," plural. Made in Ore and Asobu Made in Ore are gearing up for their respective April 29 releases on the DS and Wii. Today Nintendo opened up official sites for the two highly connected games, offering new details and first video footage.
First the DS title, Made in Ore. This is the main game in the duo. In Made in Ore ("Ore" is Japanese for "Me," making this translate to "Made in Me"), you make your very own Wario Ware-style mini-game, creating backgrounds, characters, and even music themes. Separately from the mini games, you can also make short musical records and four frame black and white comics. Your works can be traded with other DS players, who can then proceed to make their own edits. The cartridge can hold up to 90 original creations.
The WiiWare title, Asobu Made in Ore, is basically a viewing/playing app for Wario Ware mini games ("Asobu" is Japanese for "Play"). Using this, you can send your Made in Ore creations from the DS to the Wii to view or play on the big screen. You can also use the WiiWare title as a storage space, as it can store a lot more content -- up to 72 of each of the mini-games, records and manga.
Both the WiiWare and DS titles ship with pre-installed samples of the three types of content. For the DS, you get at least 90 of each. For the WiiWare version, you get 72 games, 18 comics and 18 records. The pre-installed content is unique across the two platforms and can be traded.
The two titles will also share download content. Nintendo will be offering downloadable mini-games at a rate of two per week. These can be accessed through either version. Nintendo supposedly plans on offering mini games from famous game designers, making this something you'll want to keep an eye on.
The DS version is the more expensive of the two titles, as it's a full retail release costing 4,800 yen. The WiiWare version is 800 WiiPoints.
This pricing and release information is just for Japan, of course. We'll let you know once Nintendo finalizes release information for other territories.
