Although we've yet to play it, the trailer is more than enough to get us excited in anticipation of the release of Warioland The Shake Dimension today!

Presenting an entirely new cast of characters, Wario explores various continents in search of treasure. Featuring five different maps, Wario Land: The Shake Dimension, is packed with missions and challenges. Complete Missions, which are challenges, set out at the beginning of each stage, such as finishing a stage within a specified time limit or collecting a special number of coins. Also seek out the hidden Treasure in each stage to obtain the special items held within them, then progress through the game and unlock further stages.

The Wii’s innovative controller, the Wii Remote, is held sideways in a traditional retro fashion when playing, and is shaken to activate Wario’s special moves throughout the game. Shaking the controller whilst on solid ground will see Wario unleash his ‘Ground Punch’ move that will stun all enemies on the screen. This move can also be used to manipulate surroundings and grant Wario access to new areas in the game. But use of the motion sensitive controller doesn’t stop there! Shaking the Wii Remote whilst holding an enemy or money bag will make them spill their precious contents, whereas tilting the controller when Wario is at the wheel will see players steer their various vehicles through the stage.

Sounds brilliant and looks fantastic.
