Platinum Games’ The Wonderful 101 arrives on the Wii U in a little over a month, and yet, who out there really knows what the game is all about? I’ll admit I wasn’t really sure until today. I just kind of thought it was a Pikmin rip-off with superheroes or something?
But no, there’s a lot more to The Wonderful 101 than that, as described in a new Nintendo Direct devoted entirely to the game. Hit the jump to learn everything you need to know about The Wonderful 101 and also witness the usually outspoken and uh, rather colorful Hideki Kamiya (the guy behind Bayonetta, Okami and many others) doing his best straight-laced Satoru Iwata impression…
Here’s the trailer from the last half of the Nintendo Direct on its own. It’s…it’s fairly crazy stuff…
It should be mentioned that according to Platinum Games this is their biggest, most expensive, most polished game to date. Yes, more than Bayonetta or Metal Gear Rising. The characters just look a little simple/low-poly because there needs to be 100 of them on screen at once. I have a feeling this one may still have a rough time sales-wise, but I’m definitely willing to give it a shot now that I know what it’s all about.
