PRESS RELEASE


Wonderful Ones Unite! Nintendo Unleashes The Wonderful 101


Heroic Wii U Game Features Epic Game Play Built for a Superhero … 101 of Them!


REDMOND, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Earth’s only hope against an alien invasion is a team of 100 fearless superheroes, and they need YOUR help. Only you can unite these superheroes – not to become the “Just OK 101,” or even the “So-So 101,” but rather the Wonderful 101! Launching on Sept. 15 exclusively for the Wii U console, The Wonderful 101 is an incredibly vibrant action game that lets players control a team of superheroes that is trying to defeat alien invaders known as GEATHJERK. Individually, these superheroes pack a decent punch, but unite them together and they are unstoppable.


“The Wonderful 101 is one of the most over-the-top games on Wii U – in a good way,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “Featuring hordes of heroes and enemies on screen at once, deep game play that rewards experimentation and several different uses for the Wii U GamePad, the game illustrates the kind of original and refreshing experiences that can only be found on Wii U.”


The Wonderful 101 is filled with a cast of colorful characters, led by the dynamic Wonder-Red. Players can meet other heroes that will join the team, such as the charming Wonder-Blue and the tough-as-nails Wonder-Pink. These fellow superheroes each grant players access to a new ability.


The touch-screen actions performed on the GamePad controller are vital to the success of the superheroes’ brave mission. By drawing certain symbols on the screen or with the right Control Stick, players combine multiple heroes in a Unite Morph. A circle forms Unite Hand, which delivers a powerful blow; a straight line creates Unite Sword, which can be used to attack enemies on all sides; a right angle activates Unite Gun, a morph that is useful against aerial targets; and a wavy line unleashes the power of Unite Whip, which can rip the armor from an enemy’s body.


By drawing circles around average citizens and sending them Wonder-Energy, players can recruit them to become heroes in battle. The more citizens players recruit, the more powerful their Unite Morph attacks become. To further bolster their ranks, players can track down and recruit the rest of the Wonderful 100, who have eccentric costumes and wild names, like Wonder-Guitar, Wonder-Locomotive, Wonder-Signal and even Wonder-Toilet.


Unite Morphs are also used for puzzle solving in the sprawling and towering game world. Drawing a straight line might create a ladder for scaling a wall or a bridge to cross between buildings. Unite Hand might be used to turn an oversized crank, while drawing a triangle might create a hang glider to fly through the city. Puzzle solving also takes advantage of the second screen on the Wii U GamePad controller by allowing players to control individual heroes.


The in-game Wonderful Mart lets players spend O-Parts acquired during battles to unlock additional Unite Morphs, as well as new abilities and upgrades. The game also challenges players to get top scores in their missions as they gain strength and experience, and learn more devastating combos.


In addition to the frenetic single-player mode, The Wonderful 101 offers a co-op multiplayer mode for up to five players. With one player controlling with the GamePad and four others each using either a Wii U Pro Controller or Wii Remote with a Classic Controller attached, friends can team up to take on the game’s numerous and larger-than-life challenges.


The Wonderful 101 can also be purchased and downloaded in the Nintendo eShop on Wii U. For more information about The Wonderful 101, visit http://www.thewonderful101.nintendo.com.

Will be able to let you know soon enough. I demoed it at the Wii U experience over a year ago and haven't played it since. I picked up my pre-order today, but was busy with some Game Reviews and other things around the house.

It was the first thing I ever tried on Wii U before it released and I thought it was interesting. Then I played the demo and really liked it. And now I've played the first bit of the game and am loving it. As a Tokusatsu fan, this game draws a LOT from that style. The game is action packed and there's lots of different techniques and "Unite Morphs" you can learn. There is definitely a learning curve, but once you get the hang of the controls, it definitely pays off.

Oh, and Trist... I know you love voice acting. This game has some awesome voice acting. The story is kind of over the top and crazy and fun, and the voice acting is just as over the top. But it's hilarious and awesome. If you haven't already Trist, you should check out this long trailer for a sample of the voice acting (there may be SPOILERS however):


Then again, the game may be too difficult for you Trist. I know you loved to play on the easiest of modes :P
