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.
Since the original merger between Blizzard and Activision it has been gamers’ worst fear to see corporate greed would somehow lead to the dissolving of the former’s authenticity and identity. Blizzard has always been loved by gamers as a beacon of quality titles which provided great value per dollar while also being complete packages that expanded in large ways, not ‘nickel-and-diming‘ customers the way modern games often do.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, on the other hand, has players reconsidering the franchise as interest has begun to grow. For the first time, Call of Duty’s graphical engine has been given a major upgrade. The title will also focus heavily on its single player campaign which was a feature absent from last year’s Black Ops 4 and will be pressured to earn more than ever with Destiny going third-party as Bungie exits Activision ownership retaining its rights.
