The demo will be released in the United States later. "Our fans in the US will have to wait a bit more, but don’t start reading any long books," Platinum Games said in a statement.

The Wonderful 101 launches August 23 in Europe and September 15 in North America. In the game, players explore various stages and recruit citizens to join their army of heroes. The more heroes a player gathers, the greater their Special Morph Powers will be.

Gamers will use the Wii U GamePad to activate these powers, which include Bonzai Man, Vending Machine Man, and Toilet Bowl Man, among others.
