The Wonderful 101 is one of the forgotten games from the Wii U era which many feel justifies a ‘cult classic’ status and could be enjoyed by more people if it had been released for one of the industry’s more popular game consoles. Being that this title is a true Wii U exclusive and never saw release on other platforms, it has only been able to achieve a modest 360,000 sales worldwide since its 2013 release.
But this isn’t all PlatinumGames have up their sleeves for Early 2020 reveals. They’ve launched an entire marketing campaign to showcase four projects currently in development, the first of which was this remaster. The successful funding of the game on Kickstarter reached ¥100 million yen in less than 24 hours, and currently sitting on $1.2 million USD at the time of this writing, proving that fans who requested a remaster are genuine buyers.
