There is No Such Thing as Too Much Charm.
|Did I mention the charm?|
After the tutorial you start your first fight. Basic attacks against enemies are similar to the pikmin attacking their enemies. The heroes gang-up and start hitting things together. You can split your heroes up to fight multiple enemies at a time. Turning your heroes into one of the three "weapons" allows for many things to happen but the most basic is the huge damage increase. (I'll admit that I didn't try out the gun very much during the demo, I had watched the people before me play and decided that the fist and sword were the better choices for this demo.) My heroes became my giant fist and easily destroyed the first alien / robot/ monster/ thing, in the game. The demo went on to fight big bad guys, little bad guys and more. Different occasions required different transformations like the sword being used as a pole vault to get over a building, combining everyone together into jeletin in order to block an attack (yes your defense is turning into jello) or at one point I ran into a building and was required to look at the gamepad where I could move my character around the inside of the building. I had to create the fist and rotate dials (I could only see the outcome of each turn by looking back at the t.v. monitor) to match a code which would unlock the back door of the building allowing us to move on.
Fight as the Ultimate Team of Heroes.

The release date is a mystery with some websites saying the end of june and most just saying sometime in Q2. Hopefully it'll come out sometime soon so we can create our hero armies and fight alien robots! Now to go re-play Viewtiful Joe!
