Smash Bros., Metroid, Scribblenauts Creators Making Free WarioWare Microgames

Nintendo's upcoming WarioWare: D.I.Y., the game that lets players create their own playable microgames, is tapping a handful of all-star developers to create free downloadable content, including the makers of games like Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Metroid and Scribblenauts.

Followers of WarioWare: D.I.Y. may already be aware of Nintendo's celebrity-made microgame giveaways. The Japanese version of the game, Made In Ore, has already received downloadable content from folks like Yoshio Sakamoto of Metroid fame and Brawl producer Masahiro Sakurai. Fortunately, both of those WarioWare games will come to the North American version of WarioWare: D.I.Y. on March 29.

Nintendo also plans to release weekly downloadable microgames from development luminaries such as Daisuke Amaya (Cave Story), 5TH Cell (Scribblenauts), WayForward (A Boy and his Blob), Gaijin Games (BIT.TRIP) and Team Meat (Super Meat Boy).

WarioWare: D.I.Y. hits the Nintendo DS on March 28 in North America alongside its WiiWare counterpart, WarioWare: D.I.Y. Showcase. The downloadable microgames will be available to owners of both titles.
