Hmmm...
To do:
  • Pre-release differences.
  • Look for more unused audio. There are 6 dog sounds in wav, only 2 aren't raw.
  • Investigate the Patchwork (Puzzle) minigame.
  • There are quite a few text files labelled "test" in the Pirate (ShieldPose) game's data.
  • There are a few ini files that could possibly be used to load unused content.

Game & Wario is notably different from previous WarioWare installments, as microgames aren't the main focus.

Unused Music

stream/test0.bfwav is a long, repetitive drum beat.

This ambient music appears to be for when you reach the final phase in Bird.

Unused Sounds

This voice clip is of the Adventure King stating exactly what this voice clip is. Found in content/Sound/userManagementFiles/GROUP_SP.bfgrp.

Obscured Screenshots

G&W Obscuredshot1.png G&W Obscuredshot2.png G&W Obscuredshot3.png
These three screenshots used for the minigame tip cards all share a similar oddity: they're all unaltered due to the fact the minigame tip card's front graphic obscures their borders.

Internal Project Name

Game & Wario is referred to as Slate. This is likely because of the game taking advantage of the Wii U GamePad's features. The game also contains "slate"-like objects for each of its minigames. The internal name may also be reflected in the game's two-letter code "SA" (Slate).
