The game, originally coming out as a Wii U exclusive in August 2013. Utilizing the Wii U Gamepad, it brought a new flair to how hack-and-slash games worked. The player used the touch screen to influence the actions of the player character, such as the previously mentioned Unite Morphs system.

The Unite Morphs System
The Unite Morphs system is the key drawing point of The Wonderful 101, both in its original Wii U release and its Remastered counterpart. To utilize it, the player draws shapes to switch between weapons such as swords, whips, and hammers. This adds a layer of strategy and style to most combat encounters.
Unite Morphs don’t stop there. The player can also utilize Unite Morphs to create traversal tools, such as bridges and hang gliders, to reach otherwise inaccessible areas. Unite Morphs as a whole are what this game’s core is, and it challenges the player to think on how to best solve the problem or act in combat encounters.
