The Wonderful 101 - from Platinum - directed by Hideki Kamiya

Recommended Posts

at first at the start of the trailer I thought what the hell is this supposed to be ? Then all zoomed out it looks fantastic! Wii graphics in 3d this is not. Far from it!

That looks charming and absolutely bonkers at the same time. Urge to buy a Wii U is rising but still not enough to push me over the edge (region locking is holding me back).

Well that's me buying a Wii U. The kids will have to do without new school shoes for another term.

It's beautiful. I love the look of it so much. The style makes me really, really want Mother 4 to look like that. And exist.

It does look remarkably similar to Pikmin though. Not that it'll stop me buying both.

Yeah, pretty much the highlight of the show for me - almost entirely by virtue of having a Platinum Games splash screen.

Seen as this game doesn't even have a full title yet and this is prob pre-alpha footage, you might be waiting a while till that Day 1.

There is no way this will be a launch title, probably more than a year away but certainly looks amazing and I'm Platinums biggest fan. Could well sell the console to me :)

In the gamespot interview stream they confirmed it as "launch window", though I think he was hesitant with the answer.

Nintendo have paid for the services of one of the greatest action game directors in the world to make them an exclusive brand new game for their new game system and they couldn't even be bothered to mention it in their conference, we live in fucked up times :doh:

According to Inaba, when he was asked about the Pikmin similarities, he said it's different:

I prefer Nintendo Land and another 2D sidescrolling Mario.

Only kidding. Idiots should have had this as a big hitter in the conference.

It's not funny anymore how much better Platinum is than just about any developer. They even outdo Nintendo themselves on innovation & fun, that much is already certain from watching that gameplay. The functionality seen in this project seems to be a candidate for being transferred to a Vita-as-controller concept in the future ;)

I thought it looked more like a Little Kings Story.

This is a good thing.

Day 1

I thought the plaza thing in Nintendo Land looked a bit like a high def Little King's Story. I hope they make the next Mario RPG or something look like that at least anyway

This video is excrutiating. Are all american games websites full of things like this? It's horrifying. Like BBC Breakfast News from the hell dimension

Looking at those streets, makes me want Paperboy to be riding along dishing out power-ups, health, etc...

Yeah it's terrible isn't it? I think it's Spike TV rather than a regular games info site like GiantBomb, so I assume they have some pretention of being an actual news show. Perhaps they have the same three items on a constant loop 24 hours a day like News 24 :D

When I was a kid and used to design videogames in my scrapbook with jumbo wax crayons, one of them was called 'Swarm' or 'Hive' or something and you controlled a swarm of bees that could turn into a tank or a big fist like they used to in old Warner Bros cartoons. This reminds me a bit of that. I had no idea how it would actually work, but I was willing to give Nintendo 50% of all royalties.

This looks AWESOME.

I'm getting a Viewtiful Joe vibe from the graphics - especially that swordvault bit. Which can only be a good thing, of course.

Little King's Story was one of my favourite Wii games, and if this is half as good as that it'll be fantastic.

Hot damn! this so should have been at the press conference, best thing Nintendo have in development, Kamiya is going to go 6 for 6 and beat his mentor for consistency :wub:

Now all Nintendo need to do to get me to invest in their game system is crank out a constant stream of stuff like this.

I think one of the greatest aspects of this game, is the fact that it looks like a spiritual successor to Kamiya's own Viewtiful Joe series.

A series that's been sadly missed since its final instalment on the NDS, Double Trouble.

No, I don't consider Red Hot Rumble a true VJ game, as (A) it wasn't by Kamiya, and (B) it was a free-for-all brawler, rather than an action game having platformer bits like the previous parts.

There hasn't been a true VJ game since the original, the only one directed by Hideki Kamiya, it was all down hill from there with the series. Kamiya does have a love of Sentai, as this old photo kinda shows :D
