The launch video for Platinum Games' "mass hero action" game for Wii U, The Wonderful 101, is neck-deep in the game's zany gameplay. The video introduces the alter egos of the game's seven playable heroes — all named Wonder and their corresponding color — and their respective abilities. At the players command, the superheroes can turn into giant forms, such as "Unite Hand," where the team combines to form a giant shield-weilding hand and "Wonderize Blue" that will make them form a blue sword. A demo for The Wonderful 101 is now available on the Nintendo Wii U eShop in Europe and Japan.

A new gameplay trailer for Platinum's The Wonderful 101 focuses on the transformation powers of the city's Wonderful 100 defense force. Each of the main heroes is defined by their costume color and power; the red hero transforms the team into a magical fist, the blue hero into a sword, and the pink hero into a whip. These transformations can be used to interact with the environment as well as attack enemies, as the green hero's gun can be used to move projectiles as well as shoot things. The heroes can also combine their strengths in non-combat powers, like transforming into a glider or a chain that connects two train cars together. The video also introduces us to a villain who seems to have the transformation power of the Wonderful 100 himself. A boss battle against a three-headed...

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.
