While it may not have featured in Nintendo’s main E3 conference (and what a shame!) a game under the working title Project P-100 is coming to Wii U within the console’s launch window. Featuring a band of unlikely superheroes who must work together to tackle extra terrestial forces, the game strikes us as a cross between the Justice League and Pikmin! Best of all the game comes from hotshot studio, Platinum Games, the developers behind games like Madworld and Bayonetta! Be sure to check out the debut trailer at Nintendo’s website and read their press release about the game below!
Strength in Numbers
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.
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.
Players can use the Wii U GamePad’s touch screen to command heroes such as Bonzai Man, Vending Machine Man and even Toilet Bowl Man. Heroes can also morph into gelatin to guard themselves from enemy attacks.
Players can also use the GamePad to explore areas unseen on the TV screen and solve puzzle elements.
Platinum Games, known for hit titles like Bayonetta and MadWorld, has partnered with Nintendo to apply its unique talent to the development of one of the first games for Wii U.
