The lights are on
Yesterday, Nintendo revealed all kinds of new Wonderful 101 details, including the promise of a demo. That demo is available now.
The demo was available yesterday in Europe and Japan, but we weren't sure exactly when it was coming stateside. Booting up the Wii U eShop confirms that it is in fact available now. I am downloading it myself as I type.
Thanks to Clint Alvarez for the news tip!

I'll have to download it. I don't think that I'll pick the game up on release, but it's worth a try.
I played it this morning. The only problems I had were the camera angles and the detection on the touch screen. Otherwise it was fantastic. I'll have an impressions piece up in the next few days, if anyone is interested.
Yesterday when Platinum said North American demo was coming soon and to not read a long book, it was available like 40 min. later.
I love the game so far and its a day 1 purchase. The camera is a little confusing as they don't explain L and R zooms you in and out, but they do. I am a huge Devil May Cry/Bayonetta/Viewtiful Joe ect. fan and I can already see the longevity of this game. It can get quite tough just on the easy challenge mission.
The right stick is easier to use but more time consuming than the touchpad. But I noticed in challenge mode you don't have time slowed down when drawing shapes so the touch screen will be the best way to get the highest scores and combos.
Definitely my most hyped game of the year and the primary reason I bought a Wii U after a Wonderful 101 demo I played last year.
awesome,fun game cant wait till sept.15 arrives.....more games like this and pikmin 3 will help get wii u sales out of 1st gear
got it. must say not what i was expecting. weird play mechanic, but fun....
Yes! I'm trying this out as soon as I can.
I have not understood the hype behind this game, but since I got a Wii U just last week, I'm ready to try it out for myself. I'm hoping I'll love it!
Played the demo and thought the game was FANTASTIC. The demo to me showed you some nice things but didn't give you any small details about stuff that might've made it hard for some people to grasp certain concepts of what was happening. I thought the colors were terrific, and I liked how I could switch between different "Wonderful" characters and level them up.
E-shop here I come! It'll only take me a week to get to you though...
