Wario Land: Shake It!, known as Wario Land: The Shake Dimension in PAL regions and Wario Land Shake in Japan, is a 2008 Wario platform game developed by Good-Feel for the Wii. The game was first released in Japan on July 24, 2008 and then in other regions in September 2008. It is the first Wario Land game to be released on a home video game console and succeeds Wario Land 4, which was released in 2001.

Shake It opens with Captain Syrup breaking into a museum and observing the surface of an ancient globe, which houses the Shake Dimension. She witnesses a crisis occurring in the Shake Dimension, in which the Shake King has imprisoned Queen Merelda and her Merfle subjects and claiming the legendary “Bottomless Coin Sack,” which releases an endless supply of coins when shaken. Captain Syrup steals the globe and mails it to Wario, claiming that the real treasure is inside. Before Wario is able to break the globe open, one of the escaped Merfles emerges and asks for help. Wario becomes interested in the affair only after learning of the Bottomless Coin Sack and follows the Merfle back into the Shake Dimension.

Wario eventually confronts and defeats the Shake King. Queen Merelda crowns Wario a hero though he instead nonchalantly claims the Bottomless Coin Sack and takes it home. Much to Wario’s dismay, however, Captain Syrup takes the sack for herself as payment for agreeing to help Merfle save the Shake Dimension. Outraged, Wario chases Merfle around the garage.

Wario is a character in Nintendo’s Mario series who was originally designed as an archrival of Mario. He first appeared in the 1992 Game Boy title Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins as the main antagonist and final boss. His name is a portmanteau of Mario’s name and the Japanese word warui, meaning “bad”. Wario was first designed by Hiroji Kiyotake, and is voiced by Charles Martinet, who also voices many other characters in the series.
