The Wonderful 101 assembles in new trailer

The secret U.N. combat group known as the Wonderful 100 (that's Wonderful 101 with you on board, dear player) has a simple directive: unite with other agents for colorful displays of shapeshifting heroism. A city seemingly filled with innocent schoolchildren that has come under attack by gigantic aliens gives plenty of opportunities for the W-100 to keep the peace.

This new trailer from today's Nintendo Mini-Direct shows a man go from humble school teacher to formation leader in a mere 3 billionths of a second.

The Wonderful 101 is coming on August 23 in Europe and September 15 in North America. Check out our E3 preview for more on this Wii U exclusive from Platinum Games.
