Did anyone else just see this on GTTV?

This seemed to be the most exciting thing announced for Wii U. Why wasn't it at Nintendo's show?

Yup, looked pretty neat!

They should've at least popped in a logo at the end of the conference and said they'd talk about it right after to lessen the blow a bit.

It looked interesting. Platinum Games = I'm on board.

They had to give Nintendoland like fucking 15 minutes. They just HAD to!

that was a really weird choice ...they should've at least teased something big from Retro or MonolithSoft at the end if they wanted to show Project P 100 later.

Looked pretty neat. Doesn't seem like a system seller, but it's nice to see an original property besides ZombiU. Also, it's made by Platinum, which is always a good sign.

Looks like Pikmin mixed with Devil May Cry. I'm a bit disappointed that it looks to be Kamiya's ugliest game in over a decade (especially since his games from Viewtiful Joe onward have been so fucking good-looking), but it certainly does look like it could be a really good time.

@HarlequinRiot: Thanks. That actually looks fun.

Should've shown this instead of Arkham City. It's a cool unique game, and it looks pretty.

Any number of reasons, really. My guess is that Nintendo had already spoken with Warner Bros. and Ubisoft about making appearances as third-party representatives at the press conference. In any case, it's not like not showing this game at the conference is the end of the world. I'm still rolling my eyes at the supposed sense of betrayal some of the people were raging about in the forums in this morning. And Nintendo still has their 3DS conference tomorrow.

It's Pikmin mixed with Viewtiful Joe (hence the scarf on the little dude/champion near the end). Ugliest game? It looks great so far. The game isn't even named or complete yet.

While it is obviously still in early development (It's still called Project *insert name*) it does looks extremely ugly, considering the fact that this is supposed to be next gen. It looks like a Gamecube game. But I'm entirely expecting for it to get nothing but better looking. It's Platinum - their track record so far is amazing looking games at rock solid framerates.

It looks like an Xbox 360 game, which it essentially is. Let's keep in mind the Wii U is not actually next gen.

I think it looks awesome.

In terms of character design it is perhaps a bit Viewtiful Joe-ish, but I was talking about the mechanics. Also, the game does look nice. I never said it didn't. It just doesn't even begin to approach the beauty of games like Joe, Okami and Bayonetta.
