The Wonderful 101: Remastered found Kickstarter success literally within an hour of going live. That's pretty fantastic for a title that failed to find an audience the first time out. Time has been kind to the game, and thousands are eager to give the game a second chance.
In an interview with Siliconera, Platinum's Hideki Kamiya opened up about the company's fears for the Kickstarter. Turns out the team was really worried about things not going well.
We were really nervous with the Wonderful 101: Remastered Kickstarter. Really terrified. This is the first time we’d done anything like this. We really didn’t know what to expect. We were thinking “What if we don’t hit the first goal? What are we going to do?” Thankfully, it was a success very quickly, so now we have nothing but happiness. We’re glad for all of the support. When we were in the office and it hit the goal, we were watching it on a large screen that we have. When we hit the goal, everyone in the office cheered.
