We all know about the wonders of Kickstarter and crowdfunding campaigns for games, but Nintendo has put a delightful Wario twist on the concept to drum up interest for the upcoming Game & Wario release. Instead of donating cash to the campaign, you can tweet to donate coins, which will earn various rewards for everyone who participates in the Crowdfarter campaign.
It’s a cleverly disguised attempt at promotion, as the more people on Facebook and Twitter who see Game & Wario, the better chance Nintendo has at selling more copies. Some of the rewards for contributing include a Crowdfarter badge, an exclusive wallpaper, and if enough coins are generated from the campaign, an exclusive trailer to be released before the game.
If you’re a fan of Wario and his antics, do yourself a favor and check out the website here. Game & Wario will be releasing in North America on June 23rd.
