We finally have confirmation of recent rumors of an upcoming port for The Wonderful 101, as PlatinumGames has just launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund it.
Now branded The Wonderful 101: Remastered, the company has set multiple stretch goals to bring the game the Nintendo Switch ($50,000), Steam ($250,000), and PS4 ($500,000). In less than 24 hours, the project has currently reached over $750,000 and has received new stretch goals with additional rewards. These include a new time attack mode at $1 million and a 2D side scrolling mode called Luka’s First Mission at $1.5 million.
Along with these new features, backers will receive various other rewards based the amount they donate. These range from a key-chains and exclusive box art to having director Hideki Kamiya himself block you on Twitter.
While Nintendo published the original Wii U version back in 2013, PlatinumGames itself plans to self-publish the remastered version. While we currently have no official release date, the Kickstarter page lists that the digital and physical versions of the game will arrive around April 2020.
