A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this game.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Game & Wario is a collection of mini-games -- lasting a few minutes each -- and microgames that only last a few seconds apiece. There is little to be concerned about here, though be aware of some light animated violence, including arrows shot at enemies, and some crude humor, such as nose-picking.

Talk to your kids about ...
Families can talk about game types. Should Nintendo continue to crank out these familiar game types with the same characters -- or should they take more of a chance on all-new intellectual properties (IPs)? Do people want the same game concepts rehashed out of familiarity or is Nintendo resting on its laurels?
