Wario World U is a game released for the Wii U console as a sequel to the Nintendo GameCube game, Wario World. It was released in Europe and Australia in January 5, 2013, in Japan in February 09, 2013 and in the United States in February 12, 2013.
The game begins with Wario in his new golden palace built in a land called "Marshmallow World". When he visits his treasure room, he finds out that all of his gold coins, diamonds and crystals are gone. The ground starts to shake and the palace explodes and is destroyed, as Wario is thrown away. Wario sees Adamon, a diamond-like thief, to steal all his treasure and the land's ruler, Prince Mashumaru and take them to his own castle, making all the Marshmites scared. Wario then, sets off to rescue the prince and all of the stolen objects.
Just like its predecessor, Wario World U is a tridimentional platform game. In each level, the player must beat a boss, collect four treasures and grab an amount of coins. Each world has two levels and, after both are completed, the world boss fight can be played. Wario also has a set of moves that can be used to use objects and defeats enemies.
- Prince Mashumaru
When Wario defeats a number of bosses, a new mini-game is available in a room in his palace. Wario can win mini-games to get a large amount of coins and extra health. There are three mini-games that can be unlocked:
- WarioWare Arcade!
- Wario's Adventure!
- Wario's Downhill!
