Lead a team of the world’s strongest (and strangest) superheroes to fight off a massive alien invasion! As Wonder Red, leader of the Wonderful 100, unite your mob of heroes to morph into powerful transformations such as a fist, sword, glider, gun, and more to battle aliens throughout Blossom City. You, and the Wonderful 100, are the city’s best weapon.

It’s up to you and your team of superpeople to take on colossal robots and alien masterminds bent on obliterating Blossom City. But don’t worry—you’re not alone. You can recruit more hero allies to your cause and learn even more transformational abilities as you fight, climb, glide, and leap your way through the war-torn city. Use your fighting skills to dodge enemy attacks and chain together combos, and then head to the shop to buy new items and abilities. Recruit friends to fight cooperatively by your side in multiplayer, or compete head to head in battle mode.

Key Features

  • Lead a horde of superheroes in a fight against alien invaders
  • Recruit new heroes to learn powerful new abilities
  • Take on alien invaders in intense, over-the-top battles
  • Buy new abilities and upgrades at the ingame shop

5.0 out of 5 stars I guarantee you've never played a game quite like this September 16, 2013

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
"Viewtiful Pikmin" is what came to mind when I first saw The Wonderful 101, but boy was I wrong. This game defies almost every attempt to shoehorn it neatly into any one genre. The gameplay is unlike anything I've ever seen in a game before, as is its art design, storytelling, and overall approach to using the Wii-U's features well as an exclusive, and it's all fantastic too. Hideki Kamiya made this game. I love Kamiya-san. He has made some of my all-time favorite video games over the years, from the aforementioned Viewtiful Joe to one of the most brilliant gaming masterpieces ever made, Őkami, the guy makes nothing but unique, exhilarating video game gold, and now you can add The Wonderful 101 to that list. Seeing as how this is such a densely designed, wholly unique game, this may end up being a long review, I warn you right now. If you don't like long, detailed reviews, give this one a pass.

The story behind The Wonderful 101 is as crazy and hectic as its gameplay. Basically, you play as, not one protagonist, but many simultaneously, as a worldwide superhero initiative entitled The Wonderful One-Double-Oh.

To be short, this game is beautiful, action-packed, hilarious and most importantly: FUN!

Story

You control a group of heros who are tasked with saving the world from an alien invasion. The Heros are eccentric and rediculous, and the aliens are sometimes immense, sometimes comical, and sometimes both. As you progress through the game and explore new areas and encounter new enemies, you can recruit average citizens to help you and may even come across "hidden" heros who permanently join you in the fight to save Earth.

Gameplay

Your group of heros have the unique ability to band together to morph into several different forms. For example, your group can morph into a giant hand (for punching, grabbing and turning dials), a sword (for slashing and picking locks), and a hang-glider for flying, as well as MANY others (don't want to give too much away). These different forms can be constructued using the touchpad or the right analog stick to draw different shapes corresponding to the form you wish to take. For example, drawing a circle on the touchscreen morphs the team into the Hand, whereas drawing a straight line morphs the team into the sword.

As you progress through the levels, you will use many of these different forms to solve environment puzzles, such as how to clear a large gap, or how to open a door locked by a combination dial, etc. At various points in the level, alien enemies will be warped in to your area to fight against you. Using your skills and morph abilities, you dodge enemy attacks and deal damage to the enemies until you emerge victorious.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing September 15, 2013
By PP
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Remember how you felt as a kid when games could absolutely delight you? The Wonderful 101 makes you feel the same way.

There's a bit of a learning curve but this game really rewards perseverance. The action is fast from the get go, the important thing to remember is to stay calm, pay attention, buy Unite Guts as soon as possible, and if you find that things aren't quite clicking watch some of the vids on youtube.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best 3rd-Party Wii U Title Yet September 20, 2013
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game already has a great review written by Relytia. Read it! All I really have to add to that is addressing one thing that game blogs and websites have complained about in their reviews of this game. The complaint is that Wonderful 101 does a poor job of explaining its controls and is difficult to learn to play. They are wrong!

Gamers have long been complaining that Japanese games have burgeoning introductions and hand-holding tutorials that all take far too long and cheapen the experience. They look back to games like MegaMan, which designed its first levels to teach you how to play. Here, a ledge that requires a jump. There, an area where wall jumps are required to proceed. Wonderful 101 takes this same approach to teaching the game, and most reviewers seem to have failed to recognize that. The monsters and challenges it throws at you can be defeated either by brute force or by learning how to use your tools properly. Brute force will take longer, lowering your score and making the fight drag. The fights encourage the learning of how and when to use each of your Unite Morph abilities, which add a lot to the pace and flow (and fun) of the game.

If you own a Wii U or have been considering buying one, pick this game up. It's an excellent 3rd party title and I want Platinum and other 3rd party developers to see that the Wii U market is one that can be profitable! Besides getting a great game, you'll be showing ALL 3rd party publishers that they should release more great games on Wii U.
