Nintendo launched a website on Tuesday for a new video game for the Wii U console tentatively-titled Project P-100. Platinum Games (Bayonetta, Metal Gear Rising, MadWorld) is developing the "mass-hero action" title. Nintendo is currently streaming an announcement trailer for the game.
Atsushi Inaba, executive director and producer at Platinum Games, posted on his Twitter account on Tuesday that Hideki Kamiya (Bayonetta) is directing the new title.
In the game, aliens are invading the Earth, and a group of unlikely heroes must join forces and work together to stop the invasion, since the aliens are too powerful for the heroes to fight alone. Each hero can transform into powerful weapons to attack the aliens, or they can transform into other objects such as a bridge to help the team traverse environments. Players work to recruit citizens to join their hero team and to broaden the team's transformative powers.
Project P-100 will launch simultaneously with the Wii U console.
