OtakuDome: The Wonderful 101 Review

Otaku Dome's The Wonderful 101 Review:

First-party Nintendo games were pretty scarce until Pikmin 3 released. Following that release is an interesting new title called The Wonderful 101. Not much was fully known about The Wonderful 101, until closer to it’s release date. Nintendo even devoted a whole Nintendo Direct to The Wonderful 101 in order to further explain what the game is about. It’s definitely a game that has a lot going on, and that is both a good thing and a bad thing.

To start, The Wonderful 101 is a game that’s full of action. No surprise, since the developers are Platinum Games (the folks behind Bayonetta). It follows a group of mask-wearing heroes called The Wonderful 100 (often pronounced 1-double-oh), as they band together to prevent the invasion of Earth from the alien race, GeathJerk.

There is a lot to take in when playing The Wonderful 101. You take control of The Wonderful 100 all at once as you face the alien threat. In order to pull off attacks, you’ll need to make use of The Wonderful 100′s Unite Morph ability, which turns your group of heroes into various objects. By drawing out shapes with your heroes, either with the gamepad touch screen or right thumbstick, you’ll assume the form of the shape drawn. For example, drawing a circle will summon the Unite Hand to do punches or grab things. A straight line will form the Unite Sword. You’ll gain more forms as you progress further in the game. (The Wonderful 101, Wii U) 90/100
