    This game looks really really fantastic! I just hope Nintendo (or rather 3rd party publishers developing for Nintendo), and the Wii U specifically, continue to produce quality games like this (assuming it turns out to be as good as it looks.)

    Platinum games has a record of indeed being good, their issue is that they sell on mediocre levels. Lets hope all this advertisement and directs and demoes help and wasn't a waste.

    It does look quite good, but it's still not enough for me to go out and pay £200 for a Wii U. Not by a long shot.

    Think of it as a long term investment for all the other games coming out for it--not to mention any Wii games you missed or old school games on the virtual console you might want.
  • GhostNappa2k10 - August 9, 2013 12:10 p.m.

    To be fair, I have a Wii, so that point is redundant. And I don't really play old-school Nintendo games, so that point is redundant as well. It just doesn't appeal to me.

    A better investment would be to save that 200 for another year or two, wait for a price drop, and then pick one up and some games that have gotten cheaper.

    The Best part is that after that long cinematic trailer, Kamiya comes out and says that its not a spoiler at all despite the amount of stuff revealed in that trailer. Its like the pseudo-trailer's of Kid Icarus Uprising XD

    So basically what I got out of that is Wonderful 101 is basically what happens when Platinum games decides to combine The combat of Bayonetta and the Devil may Cry games, with gameplay/thematic elements reminiscent of Pikmin and a charming presentation that evokes Viewtiful Joe's super sentai style, with a lot of humorous/in cheek elements. In the combat the player can using an absolute crapton of morph abilities (essentially weapons stances), each of which has different stats, attacks and unlocks/buyable upgrades and you can pull off full juggle combos involving the ability to switching between morphs or using multiple of them the same time allowing a massive amount of combo potential/battle strategies. Different enemy types and gigantic bosses require the player to use different strategies to take them down, there are segments where gameplay can change up drastically with players looking at the game through the gamepad screen while the tv shows a different perspective of what's going on and an absolute crap ton of stuff happening on the screen on a colossal scale while still running at 60fps. Welp, looks like it's time to buy a Wii-U.

    Also one of the characters is basically San Francisco Vergil. I mean come on... He even uses a stinger...

    The W101 direct was awesome! You could just the troll seeping out of Kamiya. And that end trailer...colour me hyped!
  • shawksta - August 9, 2013 7:35 a.m.

    Holy shit that end trailer The game is much more deeper than we expected. Dat Wonder Red vs Blue Dat Purple guy whose exactly like Red Dat Luca DEM COMBO'S Its like an entirely new incarnation of Viewtiful Joe with the gloriousness of DMC.

    Broadcasting Directly *hand motions.* ... .... ..... ...... ....... ...To you.
  • shawksta - August 13, 2013 7:36 a.m.

    The best part is all that trailer footage of spoilers and platinum confirmed it WASNT a spoiler trailer. Its Okami/Kid Icarus Uprising pseudo all over again
