About The Wonderful 101: Remastered

The Wonderful 101 was originally released for Nintendo Wii U in 2013. Platinum Games and director Hideki Kamiya announced the Kickstarter campaign to fund this multiplatform, remastered edition on February 3, 2020. Scheduled to run until March 6, the campaign has already received an enormous amount of support from fans, ensuring a general release for The Wonderful 101: Remastered to players all over the world.

A Message from Hideki Kamiya
Hello, everyone. Platinum Games Chief Game Designer Hideki Kamiya here.

About seven years ago, we released The Wonderful 101. Iíve moved up to become a member of the Platinum Games executive board, but back in those days, I didnít think very much about the business end of things (okay, Iíll admit that maybe I still donít). I devoted all of my attention to creating games that met my own personal standards. The Wonderful 101 was the sixth game Iíd directed throughout my career. Unfortunately, I canít say it was much of a success, from a business standpoint.

But Iíve also never thought of it as a failure. I didnít back then, and I donít today. Thatís because, to a game creator, a game is only a failure if it disappoints the gamers who play it. From the start, The Wonderful 101 didnít quite reach a large enough audience for me to clearly call it either way.

So regardless of how The Wonderful 101 fared in the marketplace the first time around, Iím considering this a chance to show it to the world again. Iím looking forward to seeing how it measures up.

The Wonderful 101 has gotten this miraculous second chance thanks to all of you whoíve told us you wanted to play it, as well as the passionate PG staff who worked on it with me. Weíre delighted to see it return on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Steam.

This isnít just a simple port, either. Weíve tuned the controls for each new platform and made several adjustments that should make it easier to grasp and play. On top of that, weíve improved the image quality and frame rate to suit modern hardware. On the whole, Iíd say The Wonderful 101: Remastered is the definitive edition of the game!

Weíve loaded The Wonderful 101: Remastered with as much Platinum spirit as we could. I sincerely hope youíll all play it and let us know what you think!

óThe Wonderful 101 Director Hideki Kamiya
