      Fun? Cheesy? 2 of the main components of 90’s UK hardcore!

    When this game was first revealed a couple years back I wasn’t that excited about it. But as we near it’s release and more and more details and videos are released for it I’ve decided it’s a must have for a WiiU owner. Can’t wait for it to come out!

    Maybe it’s the art style but it I think this looks viewtiful ;)

    It just need more people hyped about it!

    • Namuro

      Just imagine if they make Viewtiful 101 LOL.

      “I knew we forgot someone…Joe!”

    This looks fun. Incredibly fun. Can’t wait till it comes out! ^_^

    I don’t know if I will have a WiiU by the time this game comes out but I will pick it up regardless just to support Platinum. Really looking forward to playing it.

    Henshin a Go-Go Ba… Oh wait, wrong game.

    The villains talking at the end looks Okami-esque from the head bobbing even if it is fully voiced.

    I don’t have a Wii U yet, so the best I can do is buy a copy, recommend it to friends and hope in Nintendo promoting it… >_> I hope Nintendo gets the word out.

      Well they’re already holding a full length Nintendo Direct just for this game, and apparently they’re gonna have a big Wonderful 101 presence at Comic Con this year.

      • British_Otaku

        Just watched the Nintendo Direct.So the next Nintendo Direct is more or less going to be a Wonderful Direct 101 on top of the Comic Con presence.

        It’ll probably do well with the cult crowd who needs to know about it… I think it has potential for more to play it given the straightforward “fun” appeal on top of local multiplayer for 4 people…

          Well I expect it to start getting TV adds around Mid August or so that should help and EU is getting the “Buy Pikmin 3 digitally get 30% off Wonderful 101” promotion so that should also help get word out about the game. I really do hope it does well though, it looks very fun and has the potential to be a very great game. Kamiya and Platinum deserve sales for this game.
