The Wonderful 101 intro cinematic brings citizen-superheroes together

During a Nintendo Direct presentation today, Nintendo unveiled the intro cutscene for Platinum Games' The Wonderful 101.

When a school bus train goes out of control and threatens to careen into a public park, ordinary citizens with the power of the United Nations' Centinels program join together. They are the Wonderful 100, a group dedicated to protecting the world from evil aliens. Once the player joins, they become the titular Wonderful 101.

In particular, the "Unite Build" power showcased in this trailer allows the player to create and modify pieces of the environment.

The Wonderful 101 comes to Wii U this August in Europe, Australia and Japan, and September in North America.
