About the game
Strength in Numbers Earth is under attack from an invasion of enormous aliens, and the only thing that can protect the planet is a group of unlikely, yet mighty, heroes with special abilities.
Unfortunately, the aliens are too powerful for the heroes to fight individually. They must join forces and work together to defeat their common enemy. These uniquely different heroes can morph into powerful weapons to crush the invaders or turn into objects like a giant fist or bridge to interact with and traverse the environments.
Centinels’ Secret Weapon
THE WONDERFUL 101
Called to stand against an overwhelming enemy, 100 heroes wield the ultimate weapon: Uniting together. Combining their strengths and their very bodies into massive weapons, they can pulverize Earth’s invaders with giant fists, swords, and more, transforming to take on any challenge. However, they need one more hero to help Wonder-Red lead all the others: you!
From All Corners…
BEHIND THE MASK
To combat an intergalactic threat, these elite heroes have been strategically deployed all over the world. They have endured the most rigorous training to ready themselves for war. Seeking neither personal fame nor accolades, the Wonderful 100 have sworn never to reveal their true identities.
The heroes join together, transforming into many powerful forms.
They deploy their secret weapon against all invaders—the Unite Morph!
The most powerful heroes bring special Unite Morphs to the battle. Each hero leads with unique strengths to provide advantages that thwart different types of foes.
Wonderful Missions take you through a series of challenging, action-packed stages for up to five players*—or one lone hero. Each player leads a Hero Team into a battle of epic proportions.
*The Wonderful 101 supports local multiplayer. Additional accessories required; sold separately.
Power: Unite Hand
The young leader of the Wonderful 100, Will Wedgewood is a primary school teacher, but when he’s called into action he dons his CENTINEL-Suit and transforms into the superhero Wonder-Red! He wields the Vulcan Knuckles. While he’s generally a polite fella, he’s also very determined – which has gotten him into trouble a few times before…
Power: Unite Sword
Hooker’s a hot-headed detective with the Los Angeles Police Department. In his head he’s the typical action hero – cool with an endless supply of one-liners – but that’s far from true. His prized Valiantium Blade is said to become sharper with every slash.
Power: Unite Gun
There aren’t many shooters as sharp as Wonder-Green. He might seem flippant on the surface, but he’s a young man with a deep sense of responsibility. With his beloved gun, it’s said he can shoot the fleas off a dog’s back at 500 yards.
Power: Unite Whip
If it’s acrobatics you want, Wonder-Pink can deliver: this Olympic athlete is unmatched in her field, yet somehow still finds time to stay on fashion’s cutting edge. Enemies suffer by her Beautiful Whip, made of the newly-developed Belmont alloy.
THE WONDERFUL ONES
There are more Wonderful Ones to discover on your quest to save Earth. Once recruited, they’ll stick with you for the rest of the game, so search high and low to add them and their talents to your roster!
Destroyers of worlds. Obliterators of solar systems. The GEATHJERK have tried to consume Earth once before, but were stopped by the anti-invasion hyper plasma shield known as the “Margarita”. Now, with even more incredible mechanical weapons and countless different alien races in their ranks, they have returned – and only the Wonderful 100 can stop them.
Collect precious O-Parts during levels then spend them in the Wonderful Mart to purchase helpful items, and even upgrade or unlock Unite Morphs. Rumour has it the shop sells even more incredible abilities, but they remain shrouded in secrecy…
Players must explore each stage to find helpless citizens and recruit them to join their army of heroes. The more heroes you gather, the greater your Special Morph Powers will be.
Players can use the Wii U GamePad’s touch screen to command heroes such as Bonzai Man, Vending Machine Man and even Toilet Bowl Man. Heroes can also morph into gelatin to guard themselves from enemy attacks.
Players can also use the GamePad to explore areas unseen on the TV screen and solve puzzle elements.
