WarioWare Gold is a minigame collection on the Nintendo 3DS. It contains over 300 microgames acting like a Best Of collection similar to Rhythm Heaven Megamix. The game features new redesigns for the characters.
The microgames use all facets of the 3DS controls from the buttons to the top screen to the gyroscope. While it's unclear how many are new and returning, several iconic microgames return from across the WarioWare series. The microgames are classified into 3 control types; Mash It, Twist It and Touch It.
The microgames are divided into stories for each of the main characters with each one having a voiced cutscene at the beginning and end. Each story focuses on a different control type. Completing these modes will earn the player Gold Coins.
Gold Coins earned can be spent on the capsule machine. It works similarly to the Cluck-A-Pop from Game & Wario except each time costs 600 coins. The rewards include the cutscenes (which can be dubbed over by the player), Toys (various Nintendo toys and their history), Character Cards and Minigames.
The main plot is that since Wario was broke after his latest heist, he organized a game tournament with an entry fee and then had his friends make games. Each character has their own story. Ashley, for instance, summons a demon that tells her and Red that a ravenous demon named Hungry has been terrorizing Hell by eating all the food so, she goes to defeat the demon.
- This is the first fully voiced acted WarioWare game with it having dubbed cutscenes for each major language.
