The Wonderful 101 Trailer Introduces Characters, Gameplay
Nintendo debuted a new trailer for its upcoming Wii U game The Wonderful 101 during its Nintendo Direct presentation on Tuesday. The trailer features gameplay and introduces the central characters.
Hideki Kamiya (Bayonetta) is directing the "mass-hero action" title at Platinum Games. In the story, 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.
The Wonderful 101 will ship in Japan on August 24, and in North America on September 15.
