The Wonderful 101: Remastered will cause a lot of debate because of its Kickstarter campaign, and will try to offer a second chance to the title, originally released on WiiU in 2013.
Already mentioned at the time, a sequel is far from impossible for The Wonderfull 101, as Hideki Kamiya explained to Nintendo Everything, whose remarks were relayed by our colleagues from Gameblog. The latter talks about his hopes during the first outing, the disillusionment that came afterwards, but still seems just as motivated:
When we were developing the original game on Wii U, I had a lot of hope. I knew we had made a really amazing game, I was confident that a lot of people would be playing it, and that it would be a huge success. I even had a few ideas, like, “Oh, I wonder what a sequel where Wonder Blue would be the leader could look like?” Then the game came out, and I saw the sales figures … So I hope to be able to find this kind of aspirations in the future.
Same story from Atsishi Inaba, which evokes the need to have a sufficient player base to justify a new production. He explains that if the support of the players is present and everything is going well for the remaster, it would be “quite natural” to want to develop a sequel.
All that’s left is to wait for April and the release of The Wonderful 101: Remastered to find out if success is there.
