New Nintendo Direct all about The Wonderful 101

Includes Hideki Kamiya in a suit being polite, the reveal of the ability to activate up to five Unite Morphs at once, a new kickass trailer and more. The game looks brilliant!

I don't know if Kamiya trolled people with the suit or if it was a Nintendo order. Hope he only trolled^^

AS for the game. Not interesting for me but people will probably like this game if they love stuff like Pikmin and wired Japanese super heroes^^

Wasn't he hyping some kind of big announcement or something? Also the demo is apparently out on the EShop right now.

I really hope after this direct Kamiya told some one off camera to "Fu*k off". This game looks pretty nifty.

Ugh the constant reminder about the date was obnoxious.

Otherwise I've been looking forward to this, but I'm concerned about the length. Guess we'll see.

When does it come out again? I watched the Direct and didn't catch it.

That was a joke based on the structure of a typical Nintendo Direct, where Iwata will show a number of different games and at the end of each presentation show the game's logo and the release date.

Looks awesome. The only thing I know about this game is, according to Platinum Game, that it's going to be quite short. They said something like '' if you buy your games for replay value, pass on this one ''. Something of that nature, not in those words of course.

EDIT : Those glasses really don't fit his head.

@klei: They said it's about 20 hours. The comment you're referring to was basically Kamiya saying (as he and Inaba clarified later) "I never try to make a game longer just for the sake of it, and if you're the kind of person who prioritizes a game's length over it's quality, then I don't want you playing my games". It wasn't about the length of The Wonderful 101, it was about basing your game purchases on length being a shitty attitude.

I dunno if I buy that. Probably 20 hours because they expect you to replay it over and over. A single run can't be that long.

@kishinfoulux: http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/interview/34703

"In The case of Wonderful 101, we really try to pack a lot of different ideas into it, and it got a lot bigger than I thought. And in fact we estimate that a normal play session would be 20 hours."

They said a normal playthrough of Bayonetta should take about 10 hours by their estimate, so twice as long as that game.

This looks crazy fun. I just bought Pikmin 3, and between that, this, and Rayman Legends, my Wii U is gonna get some heavy use for the next couple months.
