Today we’ve been to London’s Hyper Japan Summer 2013 (even if with all the rain we took it didn’t look like summer, but hey…finally some chilly temperatures!) and finally we managed to get our greedy hands on one of our most hyped Wii U games of this year, also because, along with Pikmin 3, it is the only remarkable release set for 2013 on the Nintendo’s home console.
We are abviously talking about Wonderful 101, the next big game from Platinum Games, exclusive for Wii U, directed by Hideki “bad boy” Kamiya and produced by Atsushi Inaba.
Unfortunately, like all third-party-Nintendo-console-exclusive, the game isn’t getting the right attention from the media (or from Nintendo, you decide), and that’s a real shame, because we all know how good Platinum games are (ehm…Bayonetta…ehm…Metal Gear Rising), and this is no exception.
We played the only level available at the event, but immediately it seamed pure gold. From the graphics to the gameplay, from the character design to the use of Wii U gamepad touchscreen, everything felt super right. Sure, we didn’t play enough to write a proper preview, that’s why we’re talking about feeling…but hey…we play since we’re born and sometimes we still get it right.
Want a hint? Buy it! Also because it will probably the only good thing to play on Wii U till 2014.
