See all the Wonderful 101 characters in their underwear

One of the things I wish I had talked more about in my review of The Wonderful 101 is how fun it is to collect all the characters. Finding a new hero to join your crew combines the excitement of discovering a secretly bomb-a...

Preview: The Wonderful 101 from the beginning

Nintendo has a Gaming Lounge here at San Diego where you can play all of their upcoming games, including upcoming Wii U game The Wonderful 101, but we had the chance to go behind closed doors to see something new. We were able to play The Wonderful 101 from the very beginning, giving us a good luck at the game's opening and first few missions. It's bus-punchingly good.

The Wonderful 101 is insane but oh so fun

In the opening moments of this year's The Wonderful 101 demo, I turned a stack of people into a giant fist in order to turn on a water valve. This valve sent water gushing down a water slide, and my crew and I rode the current and splashed into the pool below. YES.

The Wonderful 101 coming to the Wii U on September 15th

Finally! Nintendo announced today that PlatinumGames title Wonderful 101 will be coming to the Wii U on September 15th. The game came under some fire recently for being touted as a "short" experience, but I personally can't wait, as PlatinumGames rarely misses. Oh, and it totally has waterslides.

Project P-100 has been renamed to 'The Wonderful 101'

101? The other one? That's you, says the new trailer from Nintendo, shown during this morning's Wii U press conference in New York City.  Platinum Games' upcoming Wii U title Project P-100 gets its final name, The Wonderful 101. Same game, same Pikmin-meets-Smash TV gameplay, but with a new name.  Cute name.
