The Wonderful 101 Release Date Announced

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. (The Wonderful 101, Wii U)

wasn't this suppose to be a launch title, just like rayman?
Nintendo really dropped the ball on the WiiU.

A bad game is bad forever. Take the effort to iron out the kinks

This is done by Platinum Games, it was never a bad game. It's quirky for sure, but Platinum Games makes amazing games. I have no doubt about the quality of the game, I just hope it sells well.

People disagreeing with you didn't really understood what you meant.

@the disagrees:

"A delayed game can eventually be good, a bad game is bad forever".
-Shigeru Miyamoto

Now that you have more context, maybe you can now understand what mii-gamer's point was.

While that's true, if you delay all your relevant "launch window" games to August and beyond, you have no relevant games until August and beyond. My Wii U's collecting dust because I thought I'd be done playing Pikmin 3 and Wonderful 101 by now. Too bad I was wrong.

most of my disappointment is the fact that I bought a wii u on launch day and have only been able to play it for about 2mos. before I ran out of games to play, that's what Nintendo dropped the ball on, lack of launch titles.

Admittedly my own Wii U doesn't see a great deal of use either. But at least the games are coming out soon. Pikmin is out in less than a week in the US and Wonderful 101 and Zelda will come out in the following month.

The wait has sucked, but hey, some games are FINALLY coming out.

Nintendo never announced this as a launch title. And chill out due, Pikmin 3 and The Wonderful 101 are coming soon.

Pikmin 3 coming on Sunday

They did announce it as a launch window title, along with Pikmin 3 and others. Then it was delayed, so there were very few relevant launch window games for me.

Launch title and launch window are not the same thing. This is what I said: "Nintendo never announced this as a launch title."

Which is 100% true

Sweet I know what ill be doing come sept now.

Pikmin 3 or W101. Hmmm. Why choose? Get both.
deafdani  +   669d ago
Money, perhaps? It doesn't grow on trees. I would love to get both, but my finances most likely won't allow me to, at least not at the same time. So, I'm just waiting for reviews to come out for W101, to decide which game to buy. Right now I'm inclined towards Wonderful.

You need to have a one on one with your finances. Mine tried to pull the same crap when I went to preorder the ps4 and 5 games. Let's just say my finances are no longer making a sound....

PS I'm hungry.

I'll just assume you were joking. Either that, or you mistook "finances" for "fianceé". Lol.
