Update: The PC/Steam port is now officially confirmed, as the Kickstarter campaign has raised more than US$250.000.
PlatinumGames has just launched a Kickstarter to fund development of The Wonderful 101: Remastered, and if they get US$250.000, a PC version will be released alongside PS4 and Switch ports. Originally launched as a Wii U exclusive in 2013, The Wonderful 101 was well received, though it didn’t exactly set the charts on fire, so this remaster on more popular platforms might finally do justice to Hideki Kamiya’s vision sales-wise.
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!
Fans who wish to help PlatinumGames fund this remaster/port can pledge money on Kickstarter, starting at US$36 for a digital copy of the game, and going up to US$5071 for the Pure Platinum reward, which includes all sorts of goodies. Also, if you wanted to get blocked on Twitter by Hideki Kamiya but didn’t want to interact with him in order to get it done, then you might want to go for any of the tiers priced at US$102-5071.
