We all know about the wonders of Kickstarter and crowdfunding campaigns for games, but Nintendo has put a delightful Wario twist on the concept to drum up interest for the upcoming Game & Wario release. Instead of donating cash to the campaign, you can tweet to donate coins, which will earn various rewards for everyone who participates in the Crowdfarter campaign.

It’s a cleverly disguised attempt at promotion, as the more people on Facebook and Twitter who see Game & Wario, the better chance Nintendo has at selling more copies. Some of the rewards for contributing include a Crowdfarter badge, an exclusive wallpaper, and if enough coins are generated from the campaign, an exclusive trailer to be released before the game.

If you’re a fan of Wario and his antics, do yourself a favor and check out the website here. Game & Wario will be releasing in North America on June 23rd.

    I loved Smooth Moves (not as my as my gf did though). Might get this depending on reviews….

    • jay

      You NEED to play Mega Microgames on Gamecube and Warioware Twisted. WAAAY BETTER than Smooth Moves.

      Funnier, Faster, Crazier and WTFier!!!!

    • Clel

      “not as my as my gf did though”
      Whoopsies. Did you mean not as much as my gf did though?

      But yeah, Smooth Moves was awesome.

  • Wayne Beck

    Lol. Awesome.

  • Fred

    That video is certainly entertaining after watching so many kickstarter videos for games

    • Frank

      You know what’s interesting? For one thing Nintendo does that worries fans (CIDC) it makes up in five different ways

  • Adam Fox

    “crowdfarter”?…”crowd farter?”….hmm…..interesting name for it….

    • Sonic the Hedgehog

      Well, Wario always was a big fart…

  • jay

    LOVE Wario games. WTF to the next level.

  • juancamiloarq

    That video was HILARIOUS!

  • jay

    I consider Warioware my 3rd Favorite game Developer lol.

  • Pamm!!

    I am very proud to say this:
    I just crowdfarted for world’s best game developer, Wario Ware Inc.

    …and Wario totally didn’t force me to write this…

    • I am very proud of being the brother of Wario and i hope he invite me in his next game

      • Arthur Jarret

        You’re his cousin…

        But, you’d know best. Maybe you’re both.

        Just saying, his father might be your father, but I think your mother is his father’s sister. That would explain the odd accent and refusal to do anything other than sports… and stealing music notes…

        At least you’re not so bad as Daisy:
        Hur-Durr… I’m Daisy! o_O (I’m serious, you guys should take that girl to a doctor, she seems to have serious brain damage after getting kidnapped by that alien)

        • Levi Johansen

          Waluigi is the brother of Wario and they are the cousins of Mario and Luigi.

          • Arthur Jarret

            In Mario & Sonic at the olympic winter games DS, one of the Trivia notes state that Waluigi and Wario are not brothers, but actually cousins.

          • Levi Johansen

            … and in Mario Kart DS, the description of the track “Waluigi Pinball” starts with “Wario’s wierd sibling”.

            Mario Kart DS came first, so they are brothers! Ask Waluigi, if you don’t believe me.

            They messed up in Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games.

          • Arthur Jarret

            So that PROVES it, he’s both!

            His father is Wario’s father, but his mother is Wario’s father’s sister.

            And that explains the weird focus being proud to be a cheater at oddball sports while doing nothing else worthwhile in life but declaring yourself ‘Luigi’s rival’.

            And p.s. – the relation between wario/waluigi and mario/luigi has never been documented. It’s unlikely they’re related.

          • Levi Johansen

            Wario is definelty Mario’s cousin. This has been hinted since say one by Nintendo themselves.

            It’s about time we get a trivia book, or something for the Mario/Wario universe. Just like Hyrule Historia for the Zelda universe.

          • Arthur Jarret

            I’m going to go read the mario land 2 manual now. Great Waluigi discussion! Odd how he himself never joined in to explain it, though…

          • Levi Johansen

            Yeah… he must be asleep… wampire and all…
            Or is that fan-made trivia too…

            NINTENDO! We need an official explenation!!!

      • Sonic the Hedgehog

        Well, my game will rock every one…
        You’re too slow!

        • Levi Johansen

          I really cannot wait for it!

          What’s taking you so long?

          • Sonic the Hedgehog

            Oh come on! The lost planet Tails found is really quite big! Ooops, gotta go, Eggman lost it again!

  • Frank

    That’s what I call “INCENTIVE”, this will bring in over a million copies within weeks after releases and will be the first killer app on the Wii U. Agree everyone

  • Shaise Mughal

    Is this for Europe as well? And I love how it says, ”be a part of video game history!”

  • Mr. Hobo

    Why pay for it myself when other people will pay for it for me?

    • Willgord

      What do you mean by “pay”?

      • Willgord

        Never mind, just watched the video ^^

  • di g

    funniest thing ever!

  • RonnieMexico

    nint3ndo iz quittin vid3o gam3s da wii u iz a dud

    • Cerus98

      I knew Mexico had a drug problem but jeez – I didn’t realize it was THAT bad.

      • TaintedXGamer

        oh it’s THAT ron troll agen…..Butchering the English Language with his Gr4mm4r…………

    • fireheartis1

      Dude you know what else is a dud? Your grammar bro my goodness. What kind of little babe is sitting behind the computer screen and typing anyways. There isn’t a 3 in Nintendo or a 3 in video or games, and it’s the not da, and it’s is not iz. If you haven’t learned how to type in proper English yet don’t write anything on this sight. We smarter Nintendo fans don’t understand you.

      • Arthur Jarret

        Hello there, Mr. Smarter nintendo fan – please illuminate me; How do you spell site?

        Also, some people are made to ignore. Mainly due to his spelling and his distinct lack of punctuation – he at least makes it easy to do so, as whatever he’s trying to say is so completely incoherent you won’t be able to understand it anyway.

      • RonnieMexico

        nuthin wrong wit mi grammar

        • Nikko Ybanez

          Maybe I need to go to elementary school again… There is obviously nothing wrong with your grammar.

  • Zombie_Andrew

    Now all they need is a 3D remake of the virtual boy Wario game for 3DS!

  • Potemkin

    Give out a copy of the game, exclusive dlc or something useful. Not a poster or wallpaper >:(

  • Sam

    Instead of the Dr. Pepper commercial I’m a (insert word here), I’m a CrowdFarter.
