The Wonderful 101: Remastered announced, seeking return on Switch through Kickstarter
The Wonderful 101’s return has been teased for what feels like years now. Those teases continued last week, as PlatinumGames posted an image on Twitter featuring director Hideki Kamiya with the time “1:01” on the PC screen behind him. Today, all of those teases have provided tangible results.
PlatinumGames has announced The Wonderful 101: Remastered, a return of the Wii U game through Kickstarter. Rather than going through a publisher, the studio is handling the project directly.
To bring The Wonderful 101: Remastered to Switch, just $50,000 is needed. That goal will need to be met by March 6. PlatinumGames says it intends to “add a host of amazing extras as stretch goals are met, with the goal of making The Wonderful 101: Remastered the definitive depiction of our heroes’ exploits”.
Here’s some information about The Wonderful 101: Remastered:
The Wonderful 101 is a “Unite Action” action-adventure game developed by PlatinumGames Inc., directed by action game luminary Hideki Kamiya, and originally released on the Nintendo Wii U.
In this game, players take control of the Wonderful Ones, heroes from all over the world chosen to defend the Earth from all manner extraterrestrial threats! When the peaceful Blossom City comes under attack by alien invaders, Wonder-Red, Wonder-Blue, and the rest of the Wonderful Ones suit up and unite to save the world!
The Wonderful 101: Remastered will be released on Nintendo Switch, with versions for other platforms becoming available via stretch goals. We also plan to add a host of amazing extras as stretch goals are met, with the goal of making The Wonderful 101: Remastered the definitive depiction of our heroes’ exploits!
