Wario

Supper Mario Broth has posted a scan from a 2000 Nintendo Power interview with Hiroyuki Takahashi and Syugo Takahashi of Camelot. In it, the two developers discussed why Wario and Waluigi don’t have female partners like Mario and Luigi have Peach and Daisy in Mario Tennis.

The Takahashi brothers explained how they wanted Luigi to have his own partner similar to Mario and Peach. However, Shigeru Miyamoto ended up suggesting Daisy. They also wanted Wario and Waluigi to have girlfriends, but Miyamoto wasn’t interested.

Here’s the full excerpt of the Nintendo Power interview:

When it was released back in 2003, the first WarioWare title was praised by critics for its innovative manner of transforming a series of minigames into an addictive gauntlet of five-second challenges. The surprise Game Boy Advance hit introduced the world to its unique bite-sized forms of gameplay, a variety of visual styles, a new cast of characters and enka music, but some of its more “innovative” aspects actually originated from earlier Nintendo experiments. It makes sense that a weird game would have a weird history behind it, and in WarioWare’s case it comes from one of the weirdest consoles – the Nintendo 64 Disk Drive.
