Woo hoo! WarioWare D.I.Y. has a release date!

I've been waiting for this DS game to be released in the States since the Japanese version (Made in Ore) was announced on Oct. 2, 2008.

During this year's E3, Nintendo announced it would be bringing the title to Wario-starved Americans but failed to reveal an actual release date.

That finally happened this morning when Nintendo of America's PR folks sent out a press release detailing the company's lineup for the early part of 2010. Included on said release: A March 28 release date for WarioWare D.I.Y.

Also included on said release: A vague "Q1" release date for WarioWare D.I.Y. Showcase, which most assume is the WiiWare title that allows people to upload the microgames they created in the DS version of D.I.Y. to the Wii so they can play them on a TV.

Anyway, here's an example of the crazy microgames one can create in WarioWare D.I.Y.:

(Here's an explanation of the video above, in case it left you a bit confused.)

Nintendo of America also revealed release dates for a number of cool-sounding DSiWare titles (including Link 'n' Launch, Number Battle, Starship Defense and Trajectile) and for the blue and pink Wii remotes that were released in Japan a week or so ago. (Put me down for one of each, will you?)

As happy as I am with this morning's announcements, I'm a bit disappointed with the lack of release dates for Sin & Punishment 2, Super Mario Galaxy 2, the black Wii system and the red DSi system. Oh, well, you can't have everything, can you?

I second that comment, and I'd like to add this:


It was supposed to come out around Halloween, and I've been AXIOUSLY awaiting it each Monday and COMPLETELY disappointed each and every week.

Oh, a lot of people are anxious for Castlevania Rebirth, aren't they? Hopefully it'll be out in the next few weeks...

The Rebirths I'm looking forward to are Parodius and Twin Bee. That's not to say they've been announced, but I hope they will be sometime next year :)
