WarioWare Persona Disappoints

Wario in Super Smash Bros. Brawl I was afraid of this.  It appears that when Wario makes his fighting debut in Super Smash Bros. Brawl for the Nintendo Wii he'll be appearing in his WarioWare persona complete with biker costume and flatulence attack.  Masahiro Sakurai, why have you forsaken me?

This time, the Wario you know from the "WarioWare" series makes an appearance. In trying to embody the flavor of the original game, we've aimed to give him some rather...excessive movements.  What does that mean, you ask? You'll just have to wait and see.  The flatulence you saw in the movie is a fantastic move we're tentatively calling the Wario Waft. The more time passes, the more Wario's gas builds up...

Video games don't need toilet humor to be entertaining, but mostly I'm disappointed to see that we're not going to get the Wario from Wario World or Wario Land.  That's the Wario persona that I know and love with his power-up hats and whimsical transformations and brawling attacks; not this new identity in which he's basically just the poster boy for the microgame concept with some gas humor thrown in for sport.
