One of the surprise titles from Nintendo’s E3 2012 presentation was the announcement of Project P-100 for the Wii U. Strangely named, the reason for you to take notice of this title is developer Platinum Games is behind the mass-hero action adventure.
Earth is under attack from an invasion of enormous aliens, and the only thing that can protect the planet is a group of unlikely, yet mighty, heroes with special abilities. Unfortunately, the aliens are too powerful for the heroes to fight individually. They must join forces and work together to defeat their common enemy. These uniquely different heroes can morph into powerful weapons to crush the invaders or turn into objects like a giant fist or bridge to interact with and traverse the environments.
Features of Project P-100 include:
- Players must explore each stage to find helpless citizens and recruit them to join their army of heroes. The more heroes you gather, the greater your Special Morph Powers will be.
- Players can use the Wii U GamePad’s touch screen to command heroes such as Bonzai Man, Vending Machine Man and even Toilet Bowl Man. You can also morph into gelatin to guard themselves from enemy attacks.
- Players can also use the GamePad to explore areas unseen on the TV screen and solve puzzle elements.
- PlatinumGames, known for hit titles like Bayonetta and MadWorld, has partnered with Nintendo to apply its unique talent to the development of one of the first games for Wii U.
