Wario Land: Shake It! is a classic side-scroller for the Wii starring Wario, the smelly, bad-mannered alter ego of Mario. With the Wii Remote controller turned sideways like an old-school controller, veterans and newcomers alike can run, jump and smash their way through hectic side-scrolling stages.

Get ready for a wave of nostalgia as Wario heads to Wii for his first dedicated adventure on the console! Prepare yourself for some classic Wario action as Wario Land: Shake It! takes you on an epic and lush 2D platform adventure to seek out treasure, complete missions and, in a traditional Wario way, obtain as much money as you can! Prepare to defeat all the bandana-wearing pirates standing between you and your potential haul in this puzzle-filled adventure.

Presenting an entirely new cast of characters around Wario, get ready to embark upon an all-new, swash-buckling adventure where Wario explores various continents in search of treasure. The notorious pirate leader, Shake King, has kidnapped Queen Merelda and it's up to Wario to get her back. But is he really out to do a good deed? Or it is the Bottomless Coin Sack, a sack containing a never-ending flow of gold coins, which has really caught Wario's attention?

Featuring five different maps full of action-packed stages to complete, Wario Land: Shake It!, is packed with exciting 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.

During the adventure, be sure to visit the Pirate Shop to spend those hard-earned coins. Make regular trips to purchase exciting items, new maps and videos, as new items and features will become available as progression is made through Wario Land: Shake It!.

Wario Land: Shake It! hits European shores on the 26th September 2008.
