What you need to know

  • The Wonderful 101 first released on Wii U in 2013.
  • PlatinumGames has announced a Kickstarter campaign for a remaster of The Wonderful 101.
  • The Nintendo Switch version of the remaster has already been funded.

As was heavily rumored, PlatinumGames has launched a Kickstarter campaign for The Wonderful 101: Remastered. The Wonderful 101 originally released on Wii U in 2013 but was never ported to any other platforms until now.

At the time of this being written, the Nintendo Switch version has already been funded. A Steam version will happen if the Kickstarter reaches $250,000 and a PlayStation 4 version will follow at the $500,000 level. No Xbox One stretch goal is listed but according to Gematsu, this will likely be a stretch goal for later.

There's multiple levels available for backers to choose from, including one that will allow the backer to be blocked by Kamiya himself on Twitter, if they so desire. Backers will also receive any DLC stretch goals for free.

Earlier today, Platinum Games launched a new website with #Platinum4. The website has been updated and now list the remaster under one of the four stars on the screen. It seems quite likely that this indicates PlatinumGames has four ongoing projects right now. Whether these projects include the existing announcements of Bayonetta 3 and Babylon's Fall however, is currently unknown.

  • For PC too? I would love it. Though to be honest, and judging by how Nier works, I'm not sure Platinum can make a freaking game work in 1080p.
