The most interesting news from today’s Nintendo Direct was … a Nintendo Direct. Nintendo president Satoru Iwata’s final announcement was another Nintendo Direct broadcast airing at 7 a.m. Pacific on Friday.
“This Friday, at 7 a.m. Pacific time, we will have The Wonderful 101 direct. We hope you will watch it to learn more about the game,” said Iwata.
Wonderful 101 is an upcoming Wii U game set to launch Sept. 15 in North America. Players control an army of heroes that can combine to become giant weapons though an ability called “Unite Morph.” Gamers use the Wii U GamePad to draw symbols representing The Wonderful 101’s various weapons to attack enemies.
We should hear more about it later this week.
