Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't this image of the upcoming Wario Land title for the Nintendo Wii feature a woman who looks a heck of a lot like Captain Syrup? Surely you remember Captain Syrup, the leader of the Brown Sugar Pirates and, later, the Black Sugar Gang. Wario looted her Kitchen Island stronghold in the original Wario Land. She turned up again for revenge in Wario Land 2, but then she just disappeared. Wario has faced a variety of foes in the years that followed, but never the captain. It's a shame that her role was replaced by other villains, as I always thought that the greedy Syrup was a better foil for Wario than his other rivals. Wario games have never been very deep in the story department, but I have to admit that I'm curious about Syrup's return. How does she fit into Wario's latest adventure? Where has she been for the past decade? And how long until she turns up as a playable character in a Mario sports spin-off game as Baby Syrup?
