E3 2012: Project P-100

Platinum Games has announced a new Wii U title: Project P-100. Similar to Pikmin, you control a small army of characters who all work together to destroy evil aliens invading the planet. Each individual hero has their own unique ability, but enemies are too strong to go up against alone. Together, the heroes combine their powers to create giant swords and guns to destroy opponents, form into large gelatinous blobs to absorb damage, and turn into makeshift ladders allowing citizens to climb to safety.

The Wii U controller allows players plan formations and attacks. Another cool feature takes place if you are taking shelter in a tunnel, you’ll be able to view all the action taking place outside of your hiding place. Take a look at Project P-100’s trailer for a taste of its fast-paced action:
