The Wonderful 101 is an upcoming game developed by PlatinumGames and to be published by Nintendo for the Wii U. The game was revealed at E3 2012 (Back then known as "Project P-100" and is currently slated for release during summer 2013. The game has you play as a group of superheros who can morph together to form various objects to attack enemies, solve puzzles and traverse the environment. When it was initially announced, the game was known by it's working title Project P-100.
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. These heroes include the likes of Bonzai Man, Vending Machine Man and even Toilet Bowl Man. Unfortunately, the aliens are too powerful for the heroes to fight individually. They must join forces and work together to defeat their common enemy.
Players must explore each stage to find helpless citizens and recruit them to join their army of heroes. The more heroes you gather, the greater your Special Morph Powers will be. These Morph Powers include powerful weapons like a giant fist or sword, and tools such as a bridge to interact with and traverse the environments. Heroes can also morph into gelatin to guard themselves from enemy attacks. The game uses the Wii U GamePad by allowing players to draw with their finger basic shapes such as circles and lines to quickly change between Morph Powers.
