    Fair play to them, the trailer they released yesterday looks excellent :




    Looks absolutely amazing IMO. Will be really interesting to see how Platinum pull of this type of game too.

    To me, it doesn't fit in with Nintendo games and I have no idea what the gameplay is about.

    The art style and graphics look fantastic, don't get me wrong but seems out of place for some reason. I'd like to see a lot of gameplay before I can really understand it.

    I like the idea, but this really doesn't look like it'll be my sort of game. Will keep an eye on it though.

    Well not many people (if any) have a better record than Kamiya. Never made a game that wasn't brilliant and I don't see him starting now. :)

    @Gregolution Because all games must fit in with Nintendo games. Trailer yesterday was inspired.

    What does that even mean? Running a 25 year old franchise in to the ground by barely changing it?

    I think it looks pretty good from the trailer, like a 3D Viewtiful Joe meets Pikmin.

    I'll never get my Orc looking the same again.

    Sheesh. I don't mean much by it. It just didn't seem like something I expect from a Nintendo console that's all. Not being negative, stop being so defensive.

    I'd like to see some real gameplay so I can understand what it's all about. I haven't really got a clue what the game mechanics are.

    Chill!

    I actually can't wait for this, it looks fucking awesome.

    It strikes me as the kind of game that may illicit random "FUCK YEAH's" as you play through it.

    The slide bit at the end also made me smile.

    Is there a release date for this? fingers crossed soon.

    I know. A fantastic looking, original game. I was shocked too.

    You just can't help yourself can you ;)

    Does anyone know what you actually do? I get excited about mechanics, not flashy art and graphics

    There are quite a lot of gameplay videos from demo events online

    Here is one that might give you a decent understanding of the mechanics

    I played it at EG Expo and had a blast. One of my most anticipated Wii U games.

    Looks pretty cool. I like how you get together to form larger objects. Like Voltron!

    Use of the pad seemed to lack imagination, though.

    I think that description of Viewtiful Joe meets Pikmin sounds about right by the looks of things. I'm still on the fence about getting a Wii U, and for various reasons, that fence is very comfortable, and it's unlikely that I'll come down off it any time soon, but this game is the sort of thing that really makes me want one, bad.

    I think a lot of people are in the same situation.

    Personally, i love the WiiU and im really enjoying going through ZombiU, NSMBU and Nintendoland.

    I think that by the end of the year, when the WiiU has Wonderful 101, Bayonetta 2, Pikmin 3, Mario Kart U and Zelda U all available for purchase, your going to see a lot more people on this forum picking one up.

    @USW:
    I wouldn't count on Zelda U and Mario Kart U just yet this year...
    But WWHD is very tempting...

    If it's Viewtiful Joe meets anything, i'm not buying. I bought that game brand new for 2, from a closing down Woolworths. After completing it twice I still felt robbed.

    Fortunately, it looks completly different.

    @Raiko101

    are you serious?!

    Viewtiful Joe is one of my favourite games ever!

    Obviously different opinions and all that but ROBBED?!

    Each to their own, but that sentence makes me think you lack any taste in games what so ever. ;)

    And if it was so bad why did you complete it twice?

    @Telepathic.Geometry The day I got it I took it home and completed it on my first sitting. The following day I beat it again on a higher difficulty, only it felt like a chore and was mildly frustrating. I loved the visuals, but disliked everything else. The controls felt weitd, from what I can remember, and the boss battles were simple memory patterns.

    I only played through it again because it was short and i'd nothing else to play at the time.

    Each to their own though. I know it has a cult following and that's why I picked it up. I'd only heard good things. Robbed is perhaps a harsh word, especially considring how much I spent, but I was massively disapointed.
