If you’re a Wii U owner who hasn’t yet played The Wonderful 101 demo, then you’re doing a disservice to your console. Platinum Games’ upcoming action game sees you controlling a crowd of adorable superheroes in order to bust crime and save civilians. This of course means morphing your characters into giant weapons, fight ridiculously large bosses and survive and amend disasters such as a helicopter crash, bridge explosion and city fire (all three of which, it should be noted, are packed into the 20-minute demo). There’s even a little something for you Zelda fans.
An obtainable upgrade called the “Hero Heart Fragment” not only resembles Zelda’s Heart Pieces in appearance and shares a similar title, the item description even reads “Collect 4 to increase your max vitality”.
Platinum are renowned for placing clever references in their games, and with the full version of The Wonderful 101 releasing next week in Europe and next month in North America, there could be even more satisfying nods to Zelda or other pop culture to find!
