The Wonderful 101 Will No Longer Be a Wii U Exclusive

Wonderful news, indeed!

What started out as a teaser with the number “4” turned out to be a campaign to remaster “The Wonderful 101” for next-gen consoles a la Kickstarter.

Originally released on the Wii U in 2013 and developed by PlatinumGames, The Wonderful 101 is an action-adventure game where players take control of an international group of superheroes, known as The Wonderful Ones, who must defend Blossom City from alien invaders.

Imagine Pikmin meets Viewtiful Joe…which is funny considering that Hideki Kamiya, the director of The Wonderful 101, directed Viewtiful Joe along with other games such as Devil May Cry.

Already, the campaign has been successful after going past its initial goal of approximately $50,000 in just thirty minutes and has currently reached more than $1,000,000.

Thanks to the quick response from backers, four out of the six stretch goals have been met, which include: A switch version at $50K, A PC Version via Steam at $250K, A PS4 Version at $500K and a Time Attack mode at $1M.

This is remarkable, considering that this campaign doesn’t end until March 6.

As expected with Kickstarter campaigns, there will be rewards for backers, depending on how much you contribute. Rewards can range from getting a digital copy of the game at about $36 to even being blocked on Twitter by Hideki Kamiya himself along with a treasure trove of goodies at about $5,059.

Are you excited about this announcement? Did you originally play The Wonderful 101 when it first came out on the Wii U or will you experience it for the first time through the remastered edition?
