With WarioWare Gold releasing for the Nintendo 3DS in Europe today (July 27), reviews are starting to come out and we are now seeing the full lineup of microgames available as well as the role amiibo play in the game.

Marketed as having at least 300 microgames from across the WarioWare franchise, WarioWare Gold is the largest WaroWare game yet and is a celebration of past titles in the series. It is also the first game is the series on the 3DS and thus the first game in the series to have amiibo compatibility. In this newest iteration of WarioWare, players can unlock microgames in the arcade mode by purchasing them with the game’s in-game currency. This is where amiibo come into play. Players can scan up to three amiibo per day into the game to see Wario paint a picture of the scanned amiibo.

Diddy Kong has never looked better

While Wario’s artistic abilities may not be much to look at, he is able to sell his paintings for in-game currency. This gives you a small boost each day in the amount of in-game currency you get and should help players unlock games quicker in the Arcade mode. Wario adds random backgrounds and other effects to his paintings, so scanning an amiibo in more than once can result in a different painting each time. Different paintings sell for different amounts of currency, so it’s unfortunately random as to how much currency you’ll receive from amiibo each day.

While a wide variety of amiibo get unique character portraits in the game, amiibo that do not get unique portraits can still be scanned in for a generic painting. Also, you can scan any amiibo figure into the game but WarioWare Gold is not compatible with amiibo cards. Overall Wario shows off his rendition of over 60 characters through this feature, some of which are good for a chuckle. You can see a complete list of amiibos with unique paintings below. Why the Wario amiibo doesn’t get a unique painting in Wario’s own game is beyond me.
