Goro Abe is a Japanese video game programmer and designer for Nintendo, mostly known as one of the leads of the WarioWare series.


Goro Abe made his gaming development debut with Wario Land 4 on the Game Boy Advance, where he acted as one of the game's many programmers. He later went on to work on WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$! as a graphic designer and its remake WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Party Game$ as a programmer. With WarioWare Twisted! he made his directorial debut. WarioWare Twisted! is often considered one of the Game Boy Advance's best offerings.

On the Nintendo DS, Abe helped create WarioWare Touched!, while on the Wii he directed WarioWare: Smooth Moves. With Smooth Moves, Goro Abe was in charge of the first console launch window title by Nintendo Software Planning and Development, and thus worked closely alongside the hardware developers of Nintendo when creating the Wii and the Wii Remote. When the Nintendo DSi was announced, Abe assisted Intelligent Systems and his team on the creation of WarioWare: Snapped!, and he would also direct WarioWare D.I.Y. on Nintendo DS, as well as WarioWare D.I.Y. Showcase on WiiWare.

Abe also headed the development of Game & Wario for the Wii U. Ever since he isn't known to have been involved in game development, but he has been linked to several NFC amiibo patents.
