The Kickstarter campaign for The Wonderful 101: Remastered ended last week, but not before it achieved a huge amount of success. PlatinumGames raised $2.25 million – well over the initial $50,000 funding target.

To close out the campaign and celebrate the support from fans, director Hideki Kamiya shared a new message. You can read it in full below.

One of the last stretch goals for The Wonderful 101: Remastered on Kickstarter was a pair of new orchestral recordings. Although the campaign itself ended yesterday just slightly short of the required $2.25 million, PlatinumGames will be making it happen. Extra donations received during a Twitch stream prior to the end of the Kickstarter boosted the total amount.

“The Won-Stoppable Wonderful 100” (English Version, Japanese Version) and “Tables Turn” will be re-recorded with a full orchestra and implemented in the game. Both will be on any full soundtrack release, and possibly the abridged soundtrack as well.
