Planet Earth is under siege once more from an alien invasion, and regular citizens are looking for a hero to save the day. Prepare to unite up with Wonder-Red and 100 other Wonderful Ones when The Wonderful 101 comes to Wii U next month. Developed by PlatinumGames with a team including producer Atsushi Inaba and director Hideki Kamiya, this fast-paced action adventure game pits you against the GEATHJERK, evil aliens who were prevented from conquering Earth once before, but have returned to finish the job.
In The Wonderful 101, you control a group of secret heroes plucked from their normal lives to save the world in a time of emergency. Will Wedgewood is a teacher at BlossomCityElementary School, but to some he is known as Wonder-Red, young secret combat service prodigy and soon-to-be leader of The Wonderful 100. Joining him in this elite group is Eliot Hooker, detective with the Los Angeles Police Department in his everyday life, and the man behind the mask of Wonder-Blue.
Each of the core characters in The Wonderful 101 are defined by their Unite Morph powers, which allow them to transform a group of heroes into objects, such as a giant fist called Unite Hand, a powerful blade by the name of Unite Sword, or even a firearm known as Unite Gun. All Unite Morph powers become more powerful depending on the number of heroes currently recruited, so make sure to keep an eye out for citizens crying “Help!” – adding them to your team will reinforce your unit as you battle the GEATHJERK invaders!
Get acquainted with the Wonderful Ones and fend off the attempted invasion of Earth by the GEATHJERK when The Wonderful 101 launches on Wii U on 23rd August 2013. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on The Wonderful 101 including a hands-on preview coming soon.
