Nintendo released a new trailer for Platinum Games’ (Bayonetta, Metal Gear Rising, MadWorld) The Wonderful 101 during its Nintendo Direct presentation today. The mass-hero action title will be released on the Wii U before April, during the console’s launch window.
Directed by Hideki Kamiya, the man behind Bayonetta, The Wonderful 101 sees a group of unlikely heroes fight against aliens that are invading Earth. Each hero can transform into powerful weapons to attack and defeat the aliens; they can also transform into objects that help the group traverse the environment, such as bridges. Players must work to recruit civilians to join the team of heroes and broaden the range of their transformations.
