WarioWare is a video game series by Nintendo and it's a sub-series of the Wario series. It is focused on very short and simple mini-games, more specifically microgames. The plot of the WarioWare series centers around its main character, Wario, and his friends who work for his "company", WarioWare, Inc., and develop the microgames.

Eight games have been released:

  • WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$! (March 21, 2003), Game Boy Advance. Re-released in 2011 in limited edition for the Nintendo 3DS via Virtual Console.
  • WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Party Game$! (October 17, 2003), Nintendo GameCube. A multiplayer remake of WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$!.
  • WarioWare: Twisted! (October 14, 2004), Game Boy Advance.
  • WarioWare: Touched! (December 2, 2004), Nintendo DS. Re-released for Wii U Virtual Console in 2015.
  • WarioWare: Smooth Moves (December 2, 2006), Wii.
  • WarioWare: Snapped! (December 24, 2008), DSiWare.
  • WarioWare: D.I.Y. (April 29, 2009), Nintendo DS.
  • WarioWare: D.I.Y. Showcase (April 29, 2009), WiiWare.

Additionally, Game & Wario is a spin-off of the WarioWare series, since it features the same characters and settings, but a different concept, being based on minigames rather than microgames.

Links to other series

Note: microgame versions of other Nintendo games in the WarioWare series create a sub-universe link with it, since microgames are supposed to be videogames within the Wario universe.
