However, when the first screenshots of Wario Land: Shake It! were revealed, there was hope that this game would restore Wario to his platforming glory of days past. Thankfully, Shake It! delivers on that promise, in no small part because it goes back to the basics that made Wario so great while adding in a few new twists".
