Bench Test: The Wonderful 101

Welcome to the first episode of Bench Test, where we take a first look at demos and games we’ve never played before, and co-commentate along the way! The series is all about first impressions and first-time reactions, and we’ll give our thoughts on the game at the end.

The Wonderful 101
Developer(s): Platinum Games
Publisher(s): Nintendo
System(s): Wii U
Release Date: September 15, 2013

The first game that myself and Duke will cover and commentate is The Wonderful 101 for the Wii U. Developed by Platinum Games and published by Nintendo, the demo for this title was just released a few days ago. The gameplay is an interesting combination of action, strategy, and puzzle-solving, and it fits nicely in the Wii U library. If you’re a Wii U owner, the demo is definitely worth checking out!

Take a look at the episode below, and feel free to leave a comment on the video with your thoughts on the demo and The Wonderful 101 in general! And don’t forget to subscribe to The Gamer’s Bench on YouTube!

The Wonderful 101 launches in North America on September 15, 2013.

  • I played the demo as soon as it became available. I got used to the controls right away and didn’t die once! There was a little confusion at times on where to go but once I got it, I continued to have fun. It seems like an awesome game and I definitely want it.
