Nintendo is asking people how much they’d spend on the next WarioWare game in latest survey

The popular WarioWare franchise hasn’t seen a new entry since 2018 when WarioWare: Gold released on the Nintendo 3DS, but it seems Nintendo is interested in hearing how much we’d be willing to spend on the next installment. Some folk on Twitter are reporting that they’ve received a very specific question in the latest email survey: “At a price of $49.99, how interested are you in buying the next game in the WarioWare series?”. You can see this very question in the tweet below where Twitter user @Beta64Official mentions that this is from a survey that his wife recently received.

He’s not on his own as more people are reporting the same question but with different price points as you can see here.

It’s not uncommon for Nintendo to send out surveys by email and they generally refer to some of their findings in Financial Briefings with Nintendo investors, but this question is seemingly unique and to-the-point which is raising some eyebrows. The obvious thing here is the potential for another WarioWare game to crop up in the future, or, much like Wario himself, they could just be playing tricks and looking for a reaction! Still it’s interesting to see and we’ll be sure to let you know of any further developments as and when they happen.

  1. They may be deciding on the budget to give the game, so it’s not necessarily that it’ll be announce soon and could be it’ll start development soon. Though of course it may also straight up be an E3 reveal.

  2. Hell no! I wouldn’t pay that much. Another ten bucks lower then maybe, same with every main game. Stop ripping us off.

  3. Aside from D.I.Y., I never really find enough content in the WarioWare games to justify any price above $30. I mean, the core gameplay is just waves of seconds-long minigames that get faster and faster. I was done with Touched within a month before I sold it off and though I still have my copy of D.I.Y., I haven’t booted it up in years. And then Game & Wario only had two or three games that were worth going back to several times, one of them being Gamer.

    Aside, if Nintendo is going to put out survey questions for specific games/franchises, can they put one out for F-Zero? They’d get page-long answers from me on it.

  4. $40 seems like a fair price point. I think Smooth Moves was $50, and I had a ton of hours on that trying to beat previous high scores. One bad thing about the Switch merging both the handheld and console markets together is that companies feel like they can get away with giving smaller project the $60 price tag, and plenty of games don’t seem to have enough to justify that price.

    1. I mean $60 for a Switch Wario Ware is not really a bad thing considering you are getting two versions in one, handheld and home. Those with a Lite can think of it as a full home console on the go.

      1. Switch really isn’t entirely a new concept since there was stuff like the Gameboy player in the past. The two joined together more cohesively when we could get a console like experience with a handheld.

      2. I’d actually think that a portion (if not all) of the game will be utilizing removed joycon for the microgames. Who knows though. Either way, I’d welcome a new entry in the franchise.

  5. They’re always pretty short, but have a lot of replay value (The original GBA game’s only about an hour long, but I’ve replayed it dozens of times over the years.) I think $40-$50 is the price point that would sell the best

    but I’d still buy it for $60 because I like this series too much and I’ve been wanting a new WarioWare on Switch for the past couple years

  6. $49.99 may feel like a heftier price tag, but considering that this would be a Switch game with HD graphics, it’s not a bad price. If they do put out a new Warioware game though, it had better come with some new game modes and multiplayer.

  7. I had an email about the franchises I was interested in. I listed this as one of them. I thought I would get the same question except it asked if I would pay 40 for a game like Big Brain Academy.

  8. $20-$30. Preferably $20. Theres not much depth in the games. Now give me warioland and now we’re talking, I much rather have a warioland game. WL: shake it on Wii was great and the Ds one too. They abandoned it since then

  9. People don’t decide on a game based on what it costs. People decide on a game based on whether they like the genre and how good (well-received) the game is. I didn’t buy a Paper Mario since ATYD because the new ones all suck. Wouldn’t buy for $10. But I would spend $100 on a great new classic Paper Mario.

    1. it can be both, can affect whether they wait for a sale or dont bother trying it, affects more on the edge people and it is a factor, for some people theres a lot more limited budget opportunity cost in what they get to buy

  10. I’d pay $60 for a brand new game. If it’s a Warioware Gold Definitive Edition on Switch then $50 or less would be okay.

  11. However much games in the bargain bin cost, I’ll pay that much for this?
