Holding out for a hero...or about 100 of them.
The Wonderful 101: Remastered arrived on Nintendo Switch back in mid-May, but only digitally. If you prefer for your heroes to be a bit more physical, the wait is over. PlatinumGames and Nighthawk Interactive have announced that this updated version of the Wii U exclusive is now available physically in North America, and will arrive in Europe on July 3rd.
In case you missed the original release…
The Wonderful 101: Remastered brings back over-the-top action as players take control of the Wonderful Ones – heroes from around the world chosen to defend Earth from extraterrestrial threats. Suited up for action, the band of Wonderful Ones can morph into powerful transformations, such as a fist, sword, glider, gun, and more, allowing players to navigate through perilous environments, empower helpless citizens to join their company of heroes, and defend against Blossom City’s alien invaders.
In other words, you will control up to 100 heroes at once…something DC couldn’t seem to pull off with only six! Throughout the game, players will:
- Unite multiple heroes to morph into powerful weapons to crush enemies, or into bridges, chains and other objects to help traverse the changing environments of Blossom City and beyond.
- Find helpless stranded citizens throughout each level and empower them to join the fight, strengthening the band of heroes striving to save humanity.
- Deftly switch between Wonderful Ones and their morphs to string together combos and land impactful assaults, and to evade and defend against alien attacks while racking up points to earn the best scores and rewards.
- Traverse through cities, across the ocean floor, through a dense jungle and many other unique locations around the world.
The Wonderful 101: Remastered for Nintendo Switch offers support for up to five players, and can be played in TV, tabletop and handheld modes. Along with the new physical release, it’s available now in the eShop for $39.99.
