Platinum's Project P-100 becomes The Wonderful 101
13th Sep 2012 | 16:21
The new moniker was revealed earlier today during the Nintendo Direct broadcast, where Bayonetta 2 was also revealed.
Little is known about The Wonderful 101, but its influences are obvious. Visually it is very similar to Viewtiful Joe, a Capcom property developed by former Platinum Games staffers during their time at Clover Studio. The gameplay looks to be inspired by much-loved Nintendo classic Pikmin.
Here's the official description: "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".
