Amongst the games heading to the Wii U, one which gathered a certain degree of interest was Platinum Games’ Project P-100. It had a cartoon inspired look that seemed very familiar to fans of Viewtiful Joe, which was developed by several of the same team. If you were looking for the game on the official list of ‘launch window’ games however you would have been disappointed, as the game has received a name change.
Now known officially as The Wonderful 101 (where did that extra one come from?), not a lot is known about the title, although its gameplay does appear to be influenced by the Pikmin series. Honestly, you wait ages for a cartoon inspired strategy game and then two come along at once!
The game is described in the following press release: “Earth is under attack from an invasion of enormous aliens, and the only thing that can protect the planet is a group of unlikely, yet mighty, heroes with special abilities. Unfortunately, the aliens are too powerful for the heroes to fight individually. They must join forces and work together to defeat their common enemy. These uniquely different heroes can morph into powerful weapons to crush the invaders or turn into objects like a giant fist or bridge to interact with and traverse the environments”.
Check out the trailer below and let us know if this game is one you are looking forward to picking up alongside the Wii U when both are released later this year, in November to be exact.
