The Wonderful 101 is going to get a second chance at success thanks to the Wonderful 101: Remastered Kickstarter. To be fair, I'd say the remaster is already a success, considering it pulled in $1.2 million in crowdfunding so far. With things going full-steam ahead on the Kickstarter, how long will fans have to wait for this port to release? In an interview with Eurogamer, Platinum's Atsushi Inaba said it shouldn't be all that long.
The campaign will run for a month - if it's a success we'll go into making the game. We've already been working on the planning and that's finished. We don't have an exact date or timeline at this point, but as the core is already there we want people to know we don't expect it to take very long, and furthermore it'd be rude to the backers if it took too long.
Fans of the original release have another burning question about the port. The Wonderful 101 on Wii U contained a healthy dose of references to Nintendo IP. Are those going to be retained for the Switch port? Here's what Platinum's Hideki Kamiya had to say.
That's a very good question! ...That's a very good point. Until the game is released you'll have to wait and find out.
