Less than four hours into its Kickstarter campaign, Platinum Games’ The Wonderful 101: Remastered has smashed all initial funding goals, meaning it’s coming to Switch, PC, and PS4.
As its name suggests, The Wonderful 101: Remastered sees Platinum’s 2013 Wii U oddity – a vibrantly hued action-adventure in which players help an ever-expanding throng of morphing superheroes save the city – getting the update treatment on modern platforms. Based on early word from the developer, enhancements will primarily be a blend of presentational and practical, rather than significant additions to the core game.
Speaking to Eurogamer, Wonderful 101 director Hideki Kamiya said, “In terms of the contents, it’s one of our larger games, so we’re happy with how it is. It’s not the case that we want to add more content – we just want to make it more user-friendly…I’ve got a list of the things I’ve always wanted to change that I wasn’t quite satisfied with in the original. Being able to revisit the game has allowed us to make those fine-tuned adjustments.”
