The Wonderful 101 from PlatinumGames has a release date on Wii U. The game will be released on September 15th in North America and August 23rd in Europe.
8/24 in Japan too, according to PG_taura’s twitter.
September is the worst release date to release this game in the US. I gave Sony crap for releasing Killzone for Vita in September, Wonderful 101 getting the same rep. Too much high profile titles coming out that month. Feel like Europe and Japan made the smarter decision releasing them in august.
To be fair, GTAV, which is the only high profile title I can think of for that month, wasn’t announced for Sept. when Killzone was. Puppeteer, though, was and that’s a big mistake on SCE’s part (same with Legends and Ubisoft).
Man, that’s a truly wonderful logo!
(I’m very sorry)
That was a wonderful pun
My most anticipated Wii U game with a release date (because lord knows Bayo 2 and Xeno are up there).
and now the new Sonic and Smash Bros, all with no release dates :(
I’m excited for Sonic, but not like those two. Now, Smash? Yea, I’d actually put that above everything else. Can’t believe I left that out.
I can honestly say I’m about as excited for the new Sonic as I am for tW101, as Sonic has been awesome his last couple outings (though still not near his golden days of Sonic3) and Platinum’s made some great (some fantastic) games, but yeah Bayonetta 2, Xeno-whatever, and Smash are a whole other level of hype period :D
This is the most exciting game to me for the Wii U since it’s a brand new IP :) And also we have no ideia when Bayo2-X-Smash ?
Nah, as of now there’s no clue to when they’re coming out.
this and pikmin 3 are the 2 games i was anticipating since the launch of the WiiU
These two were the reason I was going to buy a WiiU on launch. Glad I didn’t now.
you just saved your money then to spend it on it a bit later:)
Awesome news! Been looking forward to this gme for a while and an August release is brilliant as i’ll still be on my summer holidays :P
How the HELL is September 25th SUMMER Nintendo/Platinum?! You telling me I’ve got to wait until September to own my first WiiU game which was
supposed to be a launch title :(
Huff Puff Huff Puff
Well, they are just 4 days shy of when summer actually does end (September 21st, astronomically speaking). It is a terrible wait though.
Huh, I guess you’re right, but I can still be angry that a lauch/launch window title has been delayed til almost a year after the console released right?
Calms down, and hype recommences!
Tough competition with Rayman Legends and GTA5 though. :
I don’t see Rayman posing any competition, but GTAV is going to ram through anything else that pops up that month.
Hyped at 101%
I should buy a Wii U soon….
This is one of the games I’m surely going to get if ever I buy a WiiU.
I wonder if there’s a new trailer.
Ah! I’m happy to see it’s got a date but I was hoping it was gonna be June/July. I’ve not brought anything on the WiiU for ages now and there is nothing until August.
It comes out on my birthday! =D
Looking forward to checking this hot little number out when it drops in Europe- Platinum has yet to release a game I didn’t have fun with. and this? This looks hella fun.
yay for europe.
im very excited
Either this for a WiiU Bundle or Bayo 2
