Wario’s hijacked the eShop, Nintendo’s Twitter account and even issued his own press release in celebration of WarioWare Gold arriving on the 3DS. Overall, it’s been an effective way of reminding everyone games are still actually being released on the system.
Now, website Gaming Reinvented reports an equally as naughty dataminer has uncovered unused content in Wario’s new game in the form of an early version of Penny’s intro cutscene. There are a series of early sketches by the game’s character designer, Ko Takeuchi, that have been improved upon as development progressed.
Here’s exactly what ‘Ehm’ from The Cutting Room Floor found:
Leftover test video in WarioWare Gold. It’s an early version of Penny Crygor’s intro cutscene, featuring super cute Ko Takeuchi sketches. I’ll try to get a proper video recording of both versions online at some point, but it’s just not happening right now. pic.twitter.com/2DswdtUKTW— Ehm (@OtherEhm) July 27, 2018
A video has also been released illustrating what the hand-drawn sketches look like in motion:
It’s surprising how content such as this has been discovered so soon in a new release when earlier this week we found out about the existence of a beta version of Bowser’s Castle in Mario Kart Wii that took a decade to reveal.
