The Wonderful 101: Remastered Kickstarter closes with over $2.25 million pulled in, Orchestral Recordings stretch goal hit

It couldn't have been any more Wonderful

That's a wrap on The Wonderful 101: Remastered's Kickstarter. The campaign was a hit from the very first hour of its existence, smashing the $50k base goal that would see the game release on Switch. In the last few moments of the Kickstarter's run, 33,199 backers managed to pledge $2.23 million in total, which helped the game reach numerous stretch goals.

As you might know, the stretch goal for Orchestral Recordings sat at $2.25 million. The title of this article says that that goal was hit, so how did that happen if the Kickstarter ended at $2.23 million? It turns out some extra funding trickled in through Platinum's special Twitch stream celebrating the Kickstarter's success. That helped push the total over the $2.25 million mark, securing the Orchestral Recordings stretch goal.

Speaking of that Twitch stream, you can check out the entire recording from that celebration below!

The Wonderful 101: Remastered Kickstarter update: Boss Battles & Merch Spotlight

A wonderful update

The Wonderful 101: Remastered Kickstarter has updated with a new developer feature. This blog takes a look at the creation of boss battles in the game, and also goes over some of the merch in the works. Check out a blurb from the blog below, then click over for the full piece.

Hey everyone, I’m Masaki Yamanaka from PlatinumGames! I worked on The Wonderful 101 as a game designer, focusing mainly on enemies and bosses. In today’s post, I'll focus on the boss battles.

When I think about boss battles, I always have three goals I want to achieve. First, I want to make each boss battle a playground full of freedom, unrestricted by the normal limitations of regular stages. Second, I want to make it so that the player can use the new weapons, skills, or actions they gained leading up to the battle on the boss in a way that feels good. Finally, I want to make sure the boss battle has some excitement and surprises.

Kindred Fates hits Kickstarter stretch goal, officially coming to Switch

Stretching for Switch

Kindred Fates' initial Kickstarter goal was $50k, but that didn't include a Switch release. To make that happen, the Kickstarter would have to reach the $150k stretch goal. While that might have seem a bit too far off just a couple weeks ago, we're very happy to say that the goal has now been hit! The game will be officially making its way to Switch at some point in 2023.

If you want to check out more details on what Kindred Fates is all about, you can check out the official Kickstarter here.

The Kickstarter has also been updated with two more stretch goals. At $1.75 million, a remixed soundtrack will be included, and it features a special guest. At the $2 million mark, we'll get Luka's Second Mission.

Pixel-art arcade adventure 'Battle Axe' trying to secure funding for Switch release on Kickstarter, physical option planned

The old Battle Axe

Battle Axe can be played solo or in local co-op by two people, with players choosing their preferred hero before embarking on their quest. Each hero has a projectile attack to tackle the enemy from afar, as well as a short-range attack, special abilities to give them a momentary advantage, and they can also can pickup items which have a variety of effects.

Does Battle Axe look like something you'd like to help bring to Switch? The dev team is looking for $53k to make that happen, and it seems they've lined up a partner for a retail release as well. If you want to kick in some cash, you can do so right here.
