The Wonderful 101 – Director’s Cut Trailer and (Mini) Nintendo Direct Footage


As mentioned in an earlier post of mine, Nintendo held a mini Nintendo Direct conference this evening which focused solely on Platinum Games’ Wii U exclusive title The Wonderful 101. For a console that seems to be losing third-party exclusives for multiplatform releases, it was a good decision of Nintendo to serve as publisher for the title as it is shaping up to be quite a promising game.

This evening Nintendo launched a new “Director’s Edition” trailer for the game. While the title of the trailer may indicate a special edition of the game, it is just an extended trailer of the game coming in at seven and a half minutes in length.

In additional news, a demo for The Wonderful 101 has just gone live on the Nintendo eShop for the Wii U just ahead of its late-August 2013 release.

Note: The above footage is from the PAL stream for the Nintendo Direct conference and some details may differ from the North American release.

  1. Awesome. Super pumped for this (new IP, looks really fun, and unlike SOME studios making Wii U games, Platinum can actually make a game that looks like it belongs on HD consoles)… it’s definitely one of the few reasons I want a Wii U at all (along with Sonic Lost Worlds and Xenoblade 2). But I didn’t want to sit through a Nintendo Direct to gleam some info on it… even a Mini one 🙂 Glad to see the trailer work it’s way out onto the internet.

    Anyone know off the top of their heads if Hideki Kamiya is the guy responsible for Viewtiful Joe? I know he’s got a background doing Devil May Cry and Bayonetta, but Wonderful 101 REALLY seems to have some Viewtiful DNA in it…
