E3 2012: Superheroes Meet “Pikmin” In Platinum Games’ “Project P-100″ For the Wii U

The Bayonetta studio mix two things we like with their first game for Nintendo’s new console.

Project P-100 (that’s its working title for now) pits miniature superheroes against alien invaders on the Wii U. Why this make the highlight reel during Nintendo’s presentation, who can say (too much thunder being stolen from Pikmin 3?). Whatever the case, it looks like the game will have tiny superheroes in miscellaneous classes that you can throw at the various enemies looking to wreck up the Earth.

From the official synopsis on Nintendo’s E3 site:

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.
