Aside from Bowser and Wart, Mario didn’t really have an arch nemesis…that is until Wario appeared. Since his 1992 debut as the antagonist in Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins, Wario’s anti-hero brand has continued to evolve over time. From his own Wario Land and Warioware Inc. series, to puzzle games, party and sports titles, Wario has embraced change across an almost 30 year reign. Hidden in this episode are 12 treasure troves of tracks that are sure to make sure you DON’T have a rotten day! Join Mike and Ed’s fill in co-host Justin as they share music from some of Nintendo’s most celebrated composers.
