The tiny superhero game developed by Platinum Games for the Wii U again in 2013 is getting a remaster. It shall be coming to the Nintendo Switch, after all, however Platinum aren’t working with Nintendo as a writer this time round in order that they’ve taken to crowdfunding to get The Wonderful 101: Remastered made and have opened up the likelihood for bringing the brand new model to new techniques as properly.
Platinum requested for $50,000 of funding for the remaster and set a Steam model as a hefty $250,000 stretch aim. Not so beefy in spite of everything, as a result of backers have smashed by means of that aim and the PS4 model set as a $500,000 stretch aim. I’ve actually not seen the funding ticker cease shifting since I opened the web page an hour in the past. I by no means owned a Wii U so I don’t know what all of the fuss is about however the proof suggests loads of you lot may need loved it again when.
Platinum’s “unite action” game revolves round a bunch of miniature colourful superheroes every with particular talents. They can every for “unite morphs” collectively that create totally different shapes for pummeling baddies like a fist, an enormous ol’ inexperienced gun, a whip, and extra.
Here’s Platinum’s video launched with the crowdfunding marketing campaign beneath. It’s principally only a goofy skit displaying the workforce deciding to port the game after which beating up a monster in full 90’s sensible results costume regalia however there’s a tiny little bit of gameplay there on the finish.
Platinum say on the Wonderful 101 crowdfund web page that every one backers will obtain a particular version of the game with free entry to whichever DLCs are unlocked by way of funding stretch objectives. So far, the one stretch objectives revealed are the Steam and PS4 ports, suggesting that DLC objectives are additional down the listing but to be revealed. Seems like Platinum might have anticipated to outstrip their preliminary funding ask in the event that they’ve outright referenced stretch objectives which are nonetheless hidden.
This shall be Platinum’s first time self-publishing a game, they are saying throughout the announcement video, which does deliver new challenges. They appear to assume they’re as much as it, with the facility of “unite morphs” and all that.
You can take a look at The Wonderful 101: Remastered’s marketing campaign your self over on Kickstarter. It doesn’t appear to be a retailer web page has cropped up for it on Steam simply but however now you can formally anticipate that to occur sooner or later.
