Project P-100 announced for Wii U, from Platinum Games

Missing from Nintendo's E3 press conference was a game called P-100. Published by Nintendo, it's a launch game from Platinum Games, developer best known for Bayonetta, Vanquish, and the upcoming Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.

You control a number of heroes using the GamePad touch screen, including Bonzai Man, Vending Machine Man, and Toilet Bowl man. "Heroes can also morph into gelatin to guard themselves from enemy attacks," Nintendo explains.

Here's the full story:

Earth is under attack from an invasion of enormous aliens, and the only thing that can protect the planet is a group of unlikely, yet mighty, heroes with special abilities. Unfortunately, the aliens are too powerful for the heroes to fight individually. They must join forces and work together to defeat their common enemy. These uniquely different heroes can morph into powerful weapons to crush the invaders or turn into objects like a giant fist or bridge to interact with and traverse the environments.

P-100 will be available at Wii U launch--whenever that is.
