Developed by Platinum games and published by Nintendo, The Wonderful 101 is a “mass-hero action” game announced earlier in the year at E3. We have been gracefully blessed with a peek at a prologue trailer.
Being directed by Hideki Kamiya, there is an obvious resemblance to his other title, Viewtiful Joe, with over-the top action and visual effects. Is this a “sequel” Kamiya has always wanted? We see a set of average looking guys “transform” into their hero alter-egos to defend earth from an Alien invasion. Each hero is named Wonder, followed by a corresponding colour. Go go Wonder Rangers anyone?
This game is set for a Wii-U exclusive release on 23rd August in Europe, and 15th September in North America. Fancy a cartoon-y Power Ranger type affair? Look out for The Wonderful 101.
