Nintendo has by no means shied away from making colourful and zany consoles. This is the corporate that introduced us the Game Boy Color (emphasis on the colour) and delighted followers with an array of choices like turquoise, yellow, and purple. Fast ahead to 2021, and the Nintendo Switch has Joy-Con choices like neon pink and inexperienced and a extremely brilliant purple and blue, amongst others.

But in all their years, Nintendo has one obtrusive hole in its {hardware} choices: There has by no means been a Wario-themed console. Sure, avid Wario followers may purchase purple and yellow Joy-Cons for his or her Nintendo Switch or custom-mod a Game Boy of their own, however the man deserves extra. He deserves a devoted console.

Wario is already a personality that’s synonymous with type. His colour scheme, purple and yellow, could be absolute hearth on a handheld. The completely paired complimentary colours would work nice with a purple physique and yellow buttons. Hell, the GameDice was already purple. Nintendo may have slapped on a “W,” added a yellow button, and referred to as it a day.

It’s extra than simply appears to be like. The premise of the most recent WarioWare game, WarioWare: Get It Together!, begins when Wario and associates get sucked right into a console of his own making. And WarioWare video games have typically been tailor-made to the consoles they had been launched on. For instance, WarioWare Gold featured a great deal of touch-based minigames and allowed gamers to report their own dubs because it got here to the Nintendo 3DS.

The sequence can be very self-aware of the {hardware} it’s being performed on. The Game Boy Advance’s Warioware: Twisted, already received an enhanced game pack that added a gyro sensor to make use of with minigames. Why couldn’t Nintendo throw in an identical handheld to go together with it? The sequence is named “WarioWare,” in spite of everything. A console may have been the precise Wario ware that we get to carry.

So what’s made the minimize for the elusive unique console? Well, there’s been a variety of Pokémon. Pikachu alone has gotten a console launch for just about each technology for the reason that Game Boy Advance SP. The little creature was actually molded onto the Nintendo 64, for crying out loud. And whereas legendary Pokémon decals on consoles look cool, I simply don’t have the identical long-running connection to them as I do to Wario. Beyond that, Mario has gotten a elaborate red-colored Nintendo Switch, and franchises like Animal Crossing and Splatoon have gotten both bundle releases or {custom} Joy-Cons.

There has been no scarcity of character and franchise-themed {hardware}. It’s simply that Nintendo has caught shut to some tried-and-true franchises and characters. I feel it’s time to department out and make bizarre consoles once more. It’s what Wario would need.
