    this is the UK stream though. Anyone know if this direct is universal, or if i should tune in to the US one?

    EDIT: Ashley fixed it! Thank you :D

    • Marcus Navarro

      You said it yourself: it’s the UK stream.

    • http://about.me/overlordror Ashley King

      I’ve fixed the code so it’s the US stream.

      • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

        oh, thank you!

      • Marcus Navarro

        Huh. Never mind then. Thanks, Ashley!

        On an off-topic note, there are some Pokemon that Nintendo/Game Freak decided to make into mega Pokemon that are just overkill. Blazekin+Speed Boost? How the hell is anyone gonna stop that?

        • http://about.me/overlordror Ashley King

          You should check out the 3DS post I made yesterday discussing that. :)

          • Zakariyya Al-Quran

            Hey do you know who won the free copy of Pikmin 3 on the Google+ page? Thanks

  • Billy_Perry

    What is the UK time for the stream?

    • Zombie Boy

      3:00 pm. (in 6 minutes).

      • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

        It’s almost 3 there? eesh. It’s only 9 am here… I wish it was 3. I’d almost be done with work!

        • Zombie Boy

          I wish it was 9:00 am, I’d still be asleep ;)

          • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

            …lucky

      • Billy_Perry

        Wicked cheers :)

    • Madmagican

      about 6 minutes from now

  • uPadWatcher

    Nintendo and PlantinumGames FTW! Unite up!

    • Rugmouse

      I see what you did there. So psyched for this!

    • Wayne Beck

      Why is there no article about the Demo going up on the NA eshop?

      • uPadWatcher

        The good news is the demo is FINALLY here at the eShop in North America!

  • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

    Two directs in one week… The joy of being a Nintendo fan!

  • Juan Benitez

    wow.

  • Clel

    Lol Hideki looks so wrong in a suit. It’s just not like him XD

    • Yousif Alromaithi

      He acting professional in front of IGN.

    • Gotallofthem

      Right because you know him personally, you have lived with him all his life. Because this is the first time ever in his entire life has worn a suit right?……. You know he is a normal human being, who also is a business man.

  • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

    So there actually ARE 100 different heroes. awesome!

    • sharlo galmo

      Yes 100 what a big game this will be…..

  • Madmagican

    I wonder how many times they’re gonna tell us W101 releases on Sept.15?

    • Brandon Gardner

      lol I been counting

      • Madmagican

        yeah, six times

        • Brandon Gardner

          and counting…..

          • Stuart Thomas

            So let me get this straight… W101 is released Sept.15???? ;)

  • The Clockwork Being

    Look at Hideki Kamiya with that Iwata style of outfit and poster. Really doesn’t suit him. He should have just had more freedom in his mouvement.

    • Gotallofthem

      He was moving like an Japanese person, right down to his bowing. So did you want him e to be more american?

      • The Clockwork Being

        American really? What are insinuating? He should have done it like Iwata in some of the Japanese Direct. Iwata is moving some of his body parts around like in the Sega Direct. Movement is in no way American just for you to know?

  • Rugmouse

    I think this game comes out on September 15th.

    Sorry, couldn’t resist.

    • Marcus Navarro

      Edit: Never mind…

      • Clel

        Hey, if you wanna race on MKWII, send me your friend code at cleltheyoshi@gmail.com and I’ll send you mine.

    • YoG99

      Was about to say the same think … but I decided to look around for a similar comment before ;)

  • Marcus Navarro

    Can anyone confirm for me if this’ll be uploaded to Nintendo’s YouTube channel? My connection’s really bad.

    • Clel

      Nope :/

  • di g

    when does this game come out again? damn i dont think they said it enough

    • Clel

      November 28th

      • WiiUisgaming

        I thought it is February 31st

        • Clel

          No, that’s the release date for Mars.

          • di g

            thats what i thought

  • Yousif Alromaithi

    Guys you remember IGN said about the controls funny Mr Kamiya did it in front of us.

  • Rugmouse

    HAMMER! Takin’ them robots to pound town.

  • Branleon

    That was short

  • indazone88

    Wondereyes Black is a Black kid…genius!

    • Branleon

      Yep

    • Zombie Boy

      Does anyone know when it’s released? I don’t think they told us… (joke)

      • Clel

        Hey, if you still have MKWII and Brawl, I’d love to get your friend code :D
        You can e-mail me them at cleltheyoshi@gmail.com Even if you don’t mind making them public, it would be nice so it would be a less direct way to contact you. Ya know, how I’m trying to create a little network of sorts.

        • Zombie Boy

          I don’t have many Wii games (House Of The Dead, the Zelda games, Wii Sports Resort), but have a few Wii U ones. Add me on there (ZombieBoy78) for the future if you like. I intend to buy Monster Hunter soon and I’m sure there will be a few other online multi-player titles out soon that I’ll pick up.

          • Clel

            For multiplayer Wii I only have Smash Bros and MKWII, and as for Wii U, I have none :O

          • Zombie Boy

            Not yet! But I’m sure you will have one day!

          • Clel

            I have a question. Do we both have to have each other’s Miiverse tags before adding each other? Because I sent you the friend request and you haven’t responded. Anyways, if that’s the case, here’s mine:
            Gandalfo

          • Zombie Boy

            No, but I haven’t had a friend request :/

            I’ll add you :)

      • JB

        Right! Though they probably plan on releasing this direct in segments which would explain why the release date was mentioned so many times. September 15 will be forever emblazoned in my mind. Haha

        • Zombie Boy

          August 23rd for us UK fans.

          • Tim van Broekhoven

            Ha! We get it earlier again!!!

          • Zombie Boy

            Why do you think we keep getting games earlier? I’m not complaining, just wondering if there’s a reason.

          • Tim van Broekhoven

            Maybe because normally America got the games earlier and they wanted to compensate it a little?

          • Zombie Boy

            Well Japan always got games earlier, and still do, so I don’t think it’s that. It’s just weird…

          • Tim van Broekhoven

            Yeah ok. But the games are made in Japan and don’t need to be translated etc. But as for North America and Europe, America got the games earlier.

          • JB

            Uggggh! I’m sooo jealous right now. Hahaha

            EDIT: I *need* this game in my life like yesterday! Lol

          • PS4/WiiU

            This is like the 10th game where you guys get the game before us. IT’S SO FREAKIN ANNOYING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          • Zombie Boy

            If I had my way, they’d be released globally at the same time. And I still don’t know why they aren’t!

          • PS4/WiiU

            Yeah, that would be awesome. Just like they’re doing with Pokémon X and Y

    • Gotallofthem

      So was the original Black Power Ranger “Zack”. He must have gotten the Idea from them.

  • Clel

    So… Many… Spoilers…

    • Morits Lian

      For an unreleased game.

      • Gotallofthem

        Same can be said for any movie trailer that you watch on TV. Has no one every noticed that if you watch a movie trailer it pretty much shows the whole movie.

  • Deadpool U

    The Black wonder hero makes me feel a little insulted.
    But it’s still a good trailer.

    • THEMIGHTYDOOVDE

      Black lighting, Black Racer and Black Vulcan must seriously offended you then?

      • Deadpool U

        Nah the initial offence I felt is sorta gone.

      • Macho Man Randy Savage

        My favourite is Black Goliath.

    • Gotallofthem

      Guess your to young to ever see this show called Power Rangers.

      • Deadpool U

        Nah personally I don’t like Powet Rangers

        • Gotallofthem

          Point is not if you liked it or not, point is, The rangers color was black and the kid is black. Same for the Yellow Ranger, which was an Asian girl. And no one thought it was racist.

          • Deadpool U

            Oh I’m sorry that I voiced my opinion about something is that not allowed?

          • Macho Man Randy Savage

            I dont see colour.

  • Yousif Alromaithi

    I mean what the hell is this game. Kinda looks Star Fox met Pikmin and Viewtful Joe.

    • Gotallofthem

      What do you mean “What the hell is this game”? WTF does your question mean. Do you not have eyes or are you just dense, really. Or are you just some 10 year old?

      • Yousif Alromaithi

        I am two time and half more than what you stated. I am not ten but 23. So please don’t get upset because it is an exclusive. Just be a man.

        • Gotallofthem

          Upset “that it is an exclusive”, WTH would that upset me? I got a WiiU at launch, and I will get this game Day1. Your Question is what upsets me “I mean what the hell is this game”, you come off as some Troll like all these other Sony/MS monkeys, that have been posting “Whats the point of this game, What is this game, Why would someone buy this game it doesn’t make sense” .

          • Yousif Alromaithi

            Good for you bro. I am too. If I am monkey then you are too. Lol I up vote because you are picking this game but I did not down vote you.

  • D2ThaLo305

    Epic Trailer

  • Rioto

    EPIC EPIC EPIC TRAILER!!

  • The Clockwork Being

    HOLY SHIT THAT TRAILER WAS AWESOME

    • RoyRelapse

      So… why does no one here talk about the demo that is coming tomorrow ? or is that a Europe only thing ?

    • Magnus Eriksson

      This one looks more fun than PIKMIN3 (although that one looks fun too).

  • Clel

    EDIT: Nvm

    • di g

      if i had it id be game

  • di g

    captain akbar says “It’s a trap!”

  • Petri

    Turning out to be a really nice game.

    • Gotallofthem

      “Nice” is a severe understatement.

  • Mochlum

    That was one of the greatest things I’ve ever seen. Demo? Is that just Europe or is it NA too?

  • The Clockwork Being

    Put all these trailers on TV/Youtube. Well everywhere and it would be awesome

  • Rugmouse

    Why isn’t it September 15th yet? I’m sure people noticed I was psyched for this game prior to this, now I can’t even stand it!

    • Zombie Boy

      We get it August 29th in the UK :)

      • Rugmouse

        BRB moving…

      • crocodileman94

        I thought it was August 23rd

        • Zombie Boy

          Sorry, I should have had that hammered into me during the course of the presentation (I’d actually just made plans for the 29th and got mixed up).

          • crocodileman94

            “Sorry, I should have had that hammered into me during the course of the presentation”

            You should’ve, they mentioned it 6 times.

  • Lusunup

    The story trailer gave me vibes and chills I don’t know why but that was a direct… impact.

    • Interloper

      No kidding; I don’t know what’s wrong with me this morning but I almost got emotional just watching that trailer.

      • Rugmouse

        I can’t wipe this grin off my face…and I have a presentation to do!

      • mojack411

        Ok good I wasn’t the only one. I have to say I wasn’t sure about getting this game at first but now it’s a must-buy day 1 purchase for me after this presentation. Mission accomplished Nintendo and Platinum.

    • Jack5221

      The trailer was AMAZING. I am so buying this, cant wait to play it!

  • Gotallofthem

    After watching this Direct, all I have to say is “Shit just got Real”.

  • sharlo galmo

    Demo on 17:00 yes yes yes yes…

  • gtosheex

    The funniest part was the Black kid superhero and the fact that he was break dancing – still laughing hahaha

  • Branleon

    I might get this game when it comes out. but i can wait till 2014

  • Rémi

    This will be a Wonderful-day-one-purchase ! I’ve never seen so much different gameplay within a same game : Combo hack-n-slash, shoot’m up, puzzle-solving, , etc with some awesome drama within the team . Epic trailer

  • Yaboydd

    that gave me the chills, day one purchase!

  • Baum 「ツリー」

    well fuck :D
    totally forgot about it D: Tell me when it’s over, I’ll just watch it on YouTube

    • Rugmouse

      It’s over, but we’re still waiting for the ‘additional info’ promised…at least I think we are?

      • DingoWalley

        I’m still waiting, that’s for sure… I heard the W101 is going to have a Demo on European E-Shops, but I don’t think that’s the surprise.

    • Lusunup

      just finished a couple min ago you missed it my a square!

      • Baum 「ツリー」

        Okay, thanks!
        I guess first thing’s eShop…I really want that Art Academy app ;)

  • Shagrath1983

    Smashing good direct

  • Jack5221

    LOL! Wonder Blue reminds me of James from Pokemon! HE EVEN HAS A ROSE!!!

    • Rémi

      Loll jessie is the girl of team rocket, if anything, w-Blue is James and w-Pink is jessie :)

      • Jack5221

        LOL!!! Oh my god, I totally muffed that up. (EDITS)

  • JB

    I am sooooo hyped for this game! Even more now than ever… I was going to get the Wii U at launch anyways, but this game has always been at the top of my must have list!

    • Erik

      I already preordered it like about a year ago!

  • Matthew Stapleton

    You know, I wanted to get Pikmin 3…..until I saw that trailer. I think i might have to wait to get Pikmin. I still have my Wii U release games and Wii games to beat in the meantime lol.

  • Baum 「ツリー」

    OH MY GOD!!! Wonder Black is Foxy Love xDD

  • Stephen Davis

    Am I only one who does not find this interesting and thinks this game is REALLY weird?

    • ezquimacore

      yeah, gtfo

    • John Andalora

      Actually, you aren’t.
      I think there is WAY TOO MUCH on the screen at once, and it just doesn’t really appeal to me. I thought it might be cool, but after seeing that it wasn’t really something I would actually want to play.

      • Stephen Davis

        Yea, exactly its like one of those NON STOP summer blockbuster action movies. Too much happening on screen (as you said) to know whats going on or take it in. Its exhausting to watch, this reminds of a game on ADD. COD has made this their theme throughout all their games, but now they realize it too and are adding slowdown cinematic instead of everything blowing up in your face all the time.

        • John Andalora

          It’s a shame. Thought it could be something more substantial. But it is definitely not going to be a game that people will remember after playing it.

          • Andrew Gonzalez

            It’s certainly different which is what I want. I had a blast with the demo. To me it actually stands out because it’s not a shooter.

          • John Andalora

            I can appreciate different. I had an absolute blast playing Gravity Rush for the Vita because it was something extremely unique and had great gameplay and decent story. However, my concerns for this game are that it is so spread out with 101 superheroes, plus citizens being superheroes, that everything will be spread a bit too thin between them. I have the same issue with Pikmin: I have so many, and I can’t really keep track of all of them at once, so I lose track and have difficulty figuring out what I should pay attention to. I think it’s just me, but it doesn’t seem like much more than action too, which isn’t really something I enjoy. I like a bit of story with that action.

            But even still, shooters can be new and awesome. If you haven’t yet, play Spec Ops: The Line and you’ll see what I mean.

    • Christopher Westcott

      You should definitely at least try the demo. Why not? It’s free!

  • Stuart Thomas

    This game looks awesome!

  • THEMIGHTYDOOVDE

    The W101 demo is out RIGHT NOW for anyone living in Europe!

    • joey t

      yea buddy I’m in aus and it’s on there as well!! :D

      • THEMIGHTYDOOVDE

        Happy days :-)

  • andré

    this is like pikmin 3! and i loooove pikmin 3 , i must get this!

  • Thomas Vienna

    Does anybody know when this game is coming out? He only said it about fifteen times.

  • THEMIGHTYDOOVDE

    Just finished the demo, and all I can say is WOW!

    Defo day 1 purchase!

  • thedeciderU

    i was kind of on the fence about this game since i first heard about it – after seeing this, it is a MUST. this game looks awesome! very glad kamiya got his own direct. hopefully they’ll do these with other high-profile games in the future.

  • Yoboyjohn

    Does anyone know what that surprise was?did they say it yet?

    • Rémi

      Demo available now for japan and europe, America available later today

      • Yoboyjohn

        Oh cool thanks?america gets it later

  • MujuraNoKamen

    Why is a egg with glasses talking to me about a video-game?

    -Sorry :) this was actually really good. I wasn’t really bothered by the game at first it looked good but just didn’t do it for me but the more I see the more interesting and exciting it looks. I’ll keep my eye on it.

  • kevin nun—-

    It’s not on Youtube, the Direct T_T

  • Merrfn

    Pikmin on steroids.

  • Jeffery02

    The Wonderful 101 will be released on September 15th

  • Lil J Moore

    The Wonderful 101 will release on September 15. *2 minutes later*

    The Wonderful 101 will release on September 15. Ok we get it’s going to release on September 15.

  • TULFich

    I got confused, when is this released? (sarcasm)

  • Christopher Westcott

    Has anyone else tried the demo yet? It’s pretty fun but it takes a minute to get the hang of things!

  • Adderell

    Whoever Platinum Games hires to write their stories is top-notch. I went from wanting this game to pre-order in no time

  • rayan

    amzingggggg

  • Alejandro Ramírez Bejarano

    Great now i don´t have to buy the game i already saw everything that is going to happen and knowing nintendo and platinum games this game will last max 8 hours; the rest will be just masturbation

  • readypembroke

    Just downloaded demo, going to play it in a little! If it is good, then I will rent it on Gamefly and then if it has good replay value then I will buy it.

  • Andrew Gonzalez

    The gameplay has a learning curve at first but once you memorize the special attacks, it’s fun as f*&k.

  • Kholby

    I only watched half of this… I’M SOLD! Whenever it comes out, I’m totally buying it. ;)
