Shantae meets Wario

For the launch of WarioWare D.I.Y., Nintendo asked several of the game industry's most physically attractive designers to create their own microgames.  WayForward's own Monsieur Bozon contributed Shantae NAB!, which you can download to your copy of WarioWare D.I.Y. today.  Visit the official WarioWare D.I.Y. website to learn how.  Or, watch the "making of" video right here.

1UP says Flatter is Better

It's no surprise that WayForward loves 2D.  The company stood alone as the last bastion of pixel art for nearly a decade while other developers chased each other through the third dimension.  The studio does include a thriving 3D community these days, but it hasn't turned it's back on 2D by any stretch, as evidenced here!  Click that link to check out 1UP's coverage of both Shantae: Risky's Revenge, and the upcoming Batman: the Brave and the Bold.  Two games from 1UP's "Best-Looking Upcoming 2D Games" feature!
