A team of heroes from around the world must UNITE to protect the earth from vicious alien invaders!

It’s all brought together by a pulse pounding tale of heroic bravery and friendship standing tall against evil, and is PlatinumGames’ most ambitious offering to date. Hideki Kamiya, director of The Wonderful 101, has supervised this remaster and added numerous improvements to ensure that this game can be more easily and thoroughly enjoyed by all and on various platforms, and with improved visuals, framerate, and loading time for an enhanced experience on all fronts. - Over 100 unique and dazzling, each with their own backstories and emblems! - Change weapons in a flash with the “Unite Morph” system! Draw shapes to switch between swords, whips, hammers, and more to battle with strategy and flair! - Unite Morphs can be more than just weapons! Build hang gliders and bridges to cross chasms, and bounce and blast your way to great heights! Use your smarts as well as your strength to solve puzzles and persevere! - Don’t forget—a hero’s true calling is protection! Rescue the citizens you come across and your bravery will inspire them to UNITE UP! For a limited time, of course. - Your missions will take around the world! Through cities, across the ocean floor, deep in the jungle, and to a host of exciting locations!

Still one of PlatinumGames' most imaginative and exuberant action games but the refusal to improve the controls or accessibility doom the remaster to further obscurity.

The Wonderful 101 Remastered revives one of the Wii U's most experimental games, but that doesn't make it worth revisiting.
