The Wonderful 101: Remastered - Nintendo Switch, Steam, PlayStation 4

Recommended Posts

So PlatinumGames has launched a Kickstarter for The Wonderful 101: Remastered with stretch goals of $50,000 for the Nintendo Switch version, $250,000 for the Steam version, and $500,000 for the PlayStation 4 version.

As of 3 February 2020 at 1:10pm (PST), the stretch goals for the Nintendo Switch version and the Steam version have been reached, with $268,758 pledged.

I might consider pledging to get myself the Nintendo Switch version of The Wonderful 101: Remastered. But I'll have to watch gameplay footage of The Wonderful 101 before I make my decision.

Edit: As of 04:55pm (PST) at 3 February 2020, all of the platform stretch goals have been reached with $730,765 in Kickstarter donations. That means that The Wonderful 101: Remastered is coming to Nintendo Switch, Steam, and PlayStation 4 (hence the change in the title).

Pretty funny trailer. I don't have any interest in the game but I'm glad they can give the game a second chance.

Damn it Dakhil, your topic title made me think it was an announcement for an official release, not a kickstarter for a Remastered version.

My bad. I guess I got pretty excited that I forgot to mention Kickstarter in the title.

But since it has reached $434,348 in pledges in Kickstarter as of 3 February 2020 at 1:50pm (PST), it's safe to  assume it's going to be released at around April 2020.

Damn! I’m happy to see people supporting the game. That’s nuts and super awesome.

I already have the Wii U version but some of the rewards are interesting. I love that you’ll be blocked by Kamiya as a reward.

That’s hilarious.

 

I’ll definitely buy a Switch release. I got the original and DKC Tropical Freeze for free back on the Wii U because of the rewards program Nintendo had then. Club Nintendo, I think? I had enough gold coins for both and Wonderful 101 was awesome. I bought the full soundtrack off of iTunes shortly after beating the game, and I would gladly buy it for Switch so I can own a physical copy and have it on the go. That game was really great.

It's 100% guaranteed The Wonderful 101: Remastered is coming to Nintendo Switch, Steam, and PlayStation 4, but with more stretch goals.

I’m almost confident that this Kickstarter is to gauge interest in a sequel. Only $50,000 for a Switch port? Obviously, it’s likely a bit more than that, but Platinum just got a big injection of funds from Tencent, they could’ve rolled the dice on a port, especially since Wonderful 101 is something they’re really proud of. This is likely to build hype, maybe show some success to investors, and grow a fanbase to see if people want a Wonderful 102.

Since it passed the PS4 milestone, I will be picking this game up on that system. Pretty absurd on how much money they raised in that short amount of time.

An article/interview about the release going multi-platform. Sounds like Nintendo was totally fine with the game being released on other consoles, so good for them.

As of 4 February 2020 at 12:10pm (PST), $1,213,436 has been pledged, meaning that Time Attack is coming.

The question is how much money would be raised by 3 March 2020.

The time attack stretch goal should have been 1.01 million.

Featuring a secret special guest eh? I bet I know what it will be, not to mention the $2million stretch goal new mode.

I’m actually wondering if it’ll be this:

I was actually thinking last night that it would be cool if they tried something like this.

Totally didn’t realize it until I saw you quoted me, but the way I positioned those add-ons to the “boxart,” makes it look like Wonder Red is not only trying to punch Funky Kong, but that he’s trying to get rid of the Dante sticker on the cover!

 

Also, Big Bird just casually being in the Unite Fist is hilarious. RIP Caroll Spinney.

I’d like to point out that the last social media challenge has a reward where Kamiya will unblock everyone:
