The Wonderful 101 Team

Fans of Platinum Games’ The Wonderful 101 will be happy to hear that the game is now available for pre-order on both Amazon’s and Gamestop’s websites.

The Wonderful 101 Sword

Players can transform their team into a variety of giant weapons.

The Wonderful 101 is an action/strategy game along the same vein as Nintendo’s Pikmin games. The player controls a large of team of super heroes in an effort to repel an alien invasion. This is accomplished by combining the group into various weapons and tools, including giant swords, fists, airplanes and ladders. Most of these actions are managed through the Wii U’s Game Pad. The Game Pad’s screen can also be used to access areas which would normally be unviewable through the main screen’s top-down view.

The game currently has a tentative release date of December 31 and May 1 at Amazon and Gamestop, respectively. Hopefully we’ll be seeing a more definite date as time goes on. In the meantime, fans are encouraged to show their support and preorder now.

About Tyler Lubben

Tyler is a lifelong gamer, getting his start on the Intellivision when he was three years old. After receiving his English degree, he discovered all those jokes about getting a job in his field were true. As Head Editor with oprainfall, Tyler is able to bridge his two passions; playing and talking about video games at any given opportunity, and being a total grammar nazi the rest of the time.




  • I believe Atsushi Inaba clarified during the initial reveal that the game is “not like Pikmin at all”. Please stop relating this game to Pikmin.

    • Rena

      Controlling a large group of varied units, solving puzzles and fighting enemies much larger than you with pie shaped health bars, that IS similar to Pikmin.

    • RicardJulianti

      Pikmin seems more like an RTS than any sort of action game imo….

  • done!

  • YEAH

  • I don’t think I’ll preorder the game. But I will be buying it from the eShop, day one, if that option is available.
