Platinum Games says to expect something extra after the Nintendo Direct

Platinum Games teases something more after today's Nintendo Direct.

wonderful-101

In a blog post on their official site, Platinum Games have teased fans to expect something a little extra after today’s Nintendo Direct dedicated to The Wonderful 101. The announcement will be available shortly after the Nintendo Direct finishes.

The Nintendo Direct airs at 7am PST, 10am EST.

Around the web
  • Gollums

    A release date for bayonetta 2? :D that would be nice, though probably too good to be true…

  • The Clockwork Being

    Hideki Kamiya said he would love to work on a starfox game… you know what that means.

    But what i think the announcement will be between these speculations:

    Bayonnetta 1 for eShop
    He is making a new IP since he is done with the Wonderful 101
    He is making the Starfox game
    Bayonnetta 2 release date

    But at this point only time will tell. Does anyone know where the Direct can be seen.

    • di g

      that be awesome. maybe they will say that platinum is now a part of nintendo

      • The Clockwork Being

        That would be awesome

    • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

      I want the starfox so bad…

      • The Clockwork Being

        Same

        • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

          he has however told the “starfox idiots” to shut up (his words, not mine)

          • The Clockwork Being

            Didn’t he say that to the Bayonnetta fans that wanted her in Smash Bros

          • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

            he’s called pretty much all of his followers idiots at this point

      • Baum 「ツリー」

        no wait!
        Star Fox on Bayonetta 2′s graphics engine *___*

        • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

          please ;~;

    • DingoWalley

      I’m expecting one of two things:

      1. They officially show Bayonetta in Smash Bros. (Cause I’m really expecting her in it)

      2. Platinum says they’re going 2nd party to Nintendo.

      • The Clockwork Being

        Don’t you mean first party, you know like Monolith Soft, Retro Studios, Hal Laboratory.

        Or do you mean like Second Party like Camelot in a exclusive partnership(Mario Sport, Golden Sun) and like Atlus

        • DingoWalley

          I guess I meant First Party then.

      • BIG Franky

        its weird, based on a few tweets he made a couple of weeks ago, i thought Bayonetta in SSB was a foregone conclusion… (he tweeted a few times that she would be perfect for it and that he wanted her in a fighting game)…. but then more recently he has been very openly “anti” the idea…. even goign as far as threatening to block peopel that keep pestering about it on twitter…. i think his initial tweets got people so excited that he was bombarded… but i guess thats what you get for opening the door, right? lol

    • Graeme Lynch

      I think Bayonnetta 1 on Eshop makes most sense and I would personally love for it to be released. What would be even better is if they did a special offer where 1&2 is bundled at a reasonable price!

      • The Clockwork Being

        If it is that than it should be released on the eShop during the holiday season

    • Yousif Alromaithi

      I agree I read the article about Mr Kamiya Star Fox because he want’s money and he knows that working with Nintendo makes money. He worked with Sony and Xbox with no money. He suffered from frustrated sales. Making money from top selling franchise might help him become a successful director instead of creating AAA games.

      • The Clockwork Being

        Plus this guy is really action oriented. So a action packed starfox would really be good if done right.

        • Yousif Alromaithi

          This guy can do anything. Have we Nintendo fans forgotten just like what famous critics did. This guy is behind the greatness of Devil May Cry and Resident Evil. Guys wonder why Resident Evil is not scary anymore. So their you go this is the answer. I am supporting him no matter what.

          • BIG Franky

            the guy is an absolute genius. please Nintendo…. now that W101 is done, get Platinum involved in MORE…. Star Fox… F-Zero…. resurrect some of your biggest and best franchises that have been dormant for too long!

          • Yousif Alromaithi

            Well let us hope so. But guys bash his games and tell it is hard. This is why games like this does not sell well. Whose fault is this the critics.

          • The Clockwork Being

            He created DMC by accident you know. It was supposed to be another Resident Evil game but he took a different approach to the game and created a new series.

          • Yousif Alromaithi

            So the accident came a high critical acclaim game. Devil May cry 2 got lower because of different director. So nothing is by accident under Mr. Kamiya direction he is beyond perfect few critics in the West fails to recognize this.

          • The Clockwork Being

            Yeah this guy created great games and should be praised for his work but the critics in the west are all ailing to recognize this like you said.

          • Yousif Alromaithi

            True I don’t know if they appreciate his work or do not understand fully.

          • The Clockwork Being

            Anyways do you what was the message coming after the direct. is it really the demo?

          • Yousif Alromaithi

            I think so. I heard the USA demo came out but I am not sure.

    • Johny
      • The Clockwork Being

        LOL

    • Josiah Parsons

      I think an open-universe star fox fps would be wicked cool, or even a star fox game where you play as Wolf!

  • Rugmouse

    Wonder Red for Smash Bros? I find it hard to believe that Nintendo would be willing to put a character that hasn’t even appeared yet into the iconic series, but if you look at the little dude, he certainly does have the swagger!

    • Zombie Boy

      I’m thinking Bayonetta 1 for eshop.

      • BIG Franky

        no way…. (hope I’m wrong though)… but i doubt it….

    • Rugmouse

      Looks as though you Demo prediction people had your crystal ball calibrated correctly – just posted on the Platinum Games Website:

      “The Wonderful 101 Demo is now available on the Japanese and European Nintendo Wii U eShop!

      Our fans in the US will have to wait a bit more, but don’t start reading any long books!”

      • Entropyguy

        And the demo is available in the US now. :)

    • Jake

      It’s either him or bayonetta cause of why platinum games is doing for Nintendo.

    • Josiah Parsons

      Actually, the whole W101 crowd as a Pikmin-like character would be pretty epic. special moves: unite gun, whip, sword, etc.

      • Mochlum

        It would be really cool to have a Smash character with so many different weapons.

        Up B can be Wonder Pink’s whip as a tether recovery, Side B can be Wonder White charging with claws, Down B can be the Wonder Guts as a deflector, Neutral B can be Wonder Green’s gun, the smash moves can be Wonder Yellow’s hammer and Wonder Black’s bombs or electronics, the basic attacks can be Wonder Blue’s swords, the grab move can be Wonder Red’s hand, and his side dodge can be Wonder Spring. Nearly every attack could have a different weapon, which is something we really haven’t seen in Smash yet.

        • Josiah Parsons

          Agreed. Sadly, Nintendo doesn’t seem to like fairly new characters in SSB. What would be cool would be every new years, they could release a free dlc with two characters and two stages from Nintendo games released that year. For example, the 2013 one would have Rayman and Team 100 (or whatever they call themselves) from W101, along with a stage inspired by each game.

          • Mochlum

            Yeah… anyways, it might be a better idea to have more room for more Nintendo fighters (if the 3DS version doesn’t hold it back…)

        • Josiah Parsons

          Wonder black can be the final smash.

  • Shota

    demo

    • incoherent1

      THAT would be awesome. I’d love to get a chance to try before I buy (especially considering how much my wallet will be hurting the next 2 months with all these games) :)

      • BIG Franky

        good problem to have though, right? i just put $20 down on a pre-order of Sonic Lost Worlds yesterday…. Rayman soon….. W101…. Zelda….. next few months is nuts. love it.

  • Thomas Fitzgibbon

    Please be a Bayonetta 1 release, retail or eShop :-))))

  • Yousif Alromaithi

    I am expecting Rayman, Metal Gear, Sonic, Baby Mario and Luigi, Yoshi, Chrom, Shulk, Ryu, Ken, Jin, Zero and new comers in the upcoming smash bros. Can’t wait.

  • Mochlum

    My guesses are demo available now, W101 Event at Best Buys or Gamestops, or Wonder Red in Smash. All of those would definately help sales.

    • Johny

      WOAH i didn’t even think about it… the demo would be divine.. and would certanly get me to finally decide about the game :D

      • Mochlum

        Now the demo just needs to come to NA >.<

        EDIT: Yay, it is here now!

  • gtosheex

    best thing: starfox/smash bros news.
    worst thing: W101 is somehow launching for a new console >_<
    (oh how the trolls wouldn't stop)

    • Fred

      Nintendo paid for the game they can’t release it on anything else

  • Yousif Alromaithi

    I wonder how Keza did not manage to make circles while Kamiya is doing in front of us. Funny he is doing it for her.

  • Brandon Gardner

    What was the something special? I missed it

  • Petri

    So.. where are they going to announce their “little something extra”?

    • Gotallofthem

      Yup, Europe Demo. No NA Demo, which is lame.

      • BIG Franky

        Rich at IGN announced a NA demo is on the way….

  • Gollums

    they announced a demo at the end of the eu stream coming in 30 min to the estore… that must be it

    • Petri

      I was watching at nintendo.co.uk, but I didnt see that announcement.
      Was it silent? Then I could have missed it since had to jump between computer and life.

      • Gollums

        I watched it on Nintendo.de… and they didnt mention it verbally but at the very end it said there would be a demo as of 5 pm written under the w101 logo

        • Petri

          ok, thats why I missed that then.

  • ICHI

    The demo is great fun and honestly the New trailer shows of the platforming and puzzle sections much better than it was before. I hoped this would be brilliant and it’s looking strong enough to be my favourite game of the year!
