It’s time to get acquainted with your Wonder-Mask and CENTINEL-Suit and unite up with the other Wonderful Ones this Friday, 23rd August when The Wonderful 101, developed by PlatinumGames, launches on Wii U. The evil alien horde, the GEATHJERK, have landed on planet Earth yet again, and it’s down to you to send them packing and restore the lives of ordinary citizens back to normal!
In The Wonderful 101, you control a group of secret heroes belonging to a special fighting force known as the CENTINELS Planetary Secret Service. While your overall mission is to repel the GEATHJERK invaders, along the way you must protect and rescue ordinary citizens under attack, and by sending them special energy known as Wonder-Energy – with the action performed by drawing a circle on the Wii U GamePad around those citizens crying “Help!” – you give them the power to join you in battle.
Hideki Kamiya, director of The Wonderful 101, presented a special Nintendo Direct on 9th August dedicated to the game. During the broadcast, Mr. Kamiya gave more details on in-game features such as how to make the most of the Unite Morph abilities of the Wonderful Ones, as well as how to utilise items purchasable in the Wonderful Mart to enhance your skills in battle.
While Wonder-Red assumes the role as leader of The Wonderful 100, he is ably backed up by – among others – the likes of the hot-headed Wonder-Blue, the deadly femme fatale Wonder-Pink, or the sheer brute force of Wonder-Yellow. Each core member of The Wonderful 100 brings different skills to the table in the fight to vanquish the GEATHJERK, and to learn more about these unique heroes, an extended trailer for the game can be viewed here. Meanwhile, for those fans wanting to try their hand at unleashing Unite Morph attacks and familiarise themselves with The Wonderful Ones before the launch on Friday, a free downloadable demo for The Wonderful 101 is available on Nintendo eShop.
As part of pre-launch preparations, Mr. Kamiya of PlatinumGames is currently in Europe and is appearing at gamescom, taking place in Cologne, Germany, from 21st-25th August. Keep your eyes peeled on official Nintendo Twitter and Facebook accounts for the latest news of Mr. Kamiya’s visit.
Face off against the GEATHJERK and restore peace to planet Earth this Friday, 23rd August when The Wonderful 101 launches on Wii U, in stores and on Nintendo eShop. Unite up, become the hero of the hour, and get to know the iconic heroes of The Wonderful 100!
