well, the japanese site atleast(nice music too): http://www.nintendo.co.jp/wiiu/acmj/index.html
new video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sWXbQJN3G0s&feature=youtu.be

Directed by: Hideki Kamiya (Okami, Bayonetta, Resident Evil 2, Devil May Cry, Viewtiful Joe)
Developer: Platinum Games Publisher: Nintendo Release: August 24 (JP), August 23 (EU), September 15 (NA)

from GAF thread: http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=634101

info:

-Earth was attack by aliens (the 'Geathjerks') 40 years prior to the game's opening.
-The Centinel Program was set up by the UN to fight the Geathjerks. Our heroes belong to that program.
-There is one Hero placed in each of the 100 field branches of the Centinel program around the world.
-Use the sword morph to open locks, the hand morph to open doors, and the bridge morph to cross gaps.
-Up to 5 person multiplayer. Not online.

Message from Kamiya:

Long time no see, everyone. I am the director of 'The Wonderful 101', Mr. Hideki Kamiya. It has been a long time now since I directed Bayonetta, and in the interim, I aimed to be called the 'Twitter Master', but the time has come at last to send out my new game to the world, and it seems I will be able to return to my true work as a 'Game Designer'.

I think that most people do not understand what type of game this is, even though the release of the all new game 'The Wonderful 101' has come very close. At this point I believe that either, people know it's a game where you walk around as many different characters at once, believe it is a game where a dog is the main character*, or have not heard of the title at all.

And that's ok!

Why don't you learn about the game with me, via this blog, as I provide you with information on 'The Wonderful 101'?To put it simply, this game isone where you become a hero and defeat bad guys: a simple and pure battle/action game. You do not need to think about it too hard. However, there's a few...a lot more protagonists in this game than a usual one, is all. The title, 'The Wonderful 101', shows the number of heroes in the game. The extra '1' on the '100' is born from a desire for you all at home, outside the TV, to become heroes too. 'Moving about with all this heroes - what sort of game is this?' you might be wondering. I would like to introduce a little bit for you in the coming weeks.

...On that note, I shall end my welcome message here. From the next blog post, I will mix in videos as I introduce various aspects of the game. Not just the action, but also lots of information on the characters and the story, so please look forward to it. Finally, in preparation for the next post, everyone, Unite Up!

Nice to see the other 3 characters, yellow, white and black.
Really wish I could afford a WiiU right now, I'd definitly buy one just to play this. Hoping this do great saleswise.

Umm...your point being? I don't mean to blow your mind buddy, but not everygame (yes, even in 2013) needs online multiplayer.

We already knew this; none of the first generation first and second party Wii U games had online. The second generation Wii U games, like Mario Kart 8 for example, are all confirmed to be fully online enabled.

Sounds like a load of crock to me, Nintendo's made quite a lot of promises that ending up falling short. No reason to say this will be any different.

Which is a huge perk if you ask me

The best games on the planet are based on offline experiences, even Demons/Dark Souls are single player games at heart, that is why they are so good

Online focus totally destroys games

Damn all these "not online" posts.  I guess there is no turning back at this point.  Just a few ago gamers were sick of all the forced online modes in their games.  Now apparently if there is no online its not a game worth playing.  Its pretty amazing how ideas trickle down from gaming media and eventually just stick after a while.

Not true at all, Demon's and Dark Souls have a high emphasis on online, especially pvp. You can almost consider them as MMOs, at least when they came out when their community was larger/more active.

website updated with new characters introduction videos of Wonder-Red, Blue, Green and Pink:
http://www.nintendo.co.jp/wiiu/acmj/index.html#/character/

you can also visit Platinum blog for constant updating news about The Wonderful 101: http://platinumgames.com/blog/
same with the japanese blog: http://www.platinumgames.co.jp/tw101/characters/
can also check WiiU UK FB page for updates: https://www.facebook.com/WiiU.co.uk

The characters

Wonder Red - The Crimson Fist (Will Wedgewood)
iXHA2LtCWbvrj.jpg

Wonder Blue - The Supersonic Blade (Elliot Hooker)
iJeKUXP1t20vh.jpg

Wonder Green - Le Sniper Supérieur (Jean-Sébastien Renault)
iNjA9RWsbHQPf.jpg

Wonder Pink - The Queen of Rage (Mariana Francesco)
ikLzkfNaGDr7.jpg

you can also guess their nationalities aswell. RED and Blue = Americans(tho Wedgewood sounds english), Green = French and Pink = Italian
Based on a recent video, White = Japanese which leaves Yellow and Black TBD.

Those intro videos for each characters look so cool. Definitly think Kamiya has another winner to add to his games list(incoming AAA), it looks awesome!
