Video: Check Out These Highlights From Hideki Kamiya's Presentation at PAX Prime

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Wonder Red's original design was, peculiarly, a balding hero

The Wonderful 101 will be released in North America on 15th September, and a major part of its marketing push in the region came recently at PAX Prime, where the title was on show and Hideki Kamiya gave a developer's presentation. While not doing that he posed with happy gamers and conducted plenty of interviews, partaking in both activities with our very own Jon Wahlgren and in the process telling us about the origins of the title, while also discussing Bayonetta 2.

Nintendo's now released an official video showing and summarising the presentation that Kamiya-san provided, confirming much of what's been reported via fuzzy camera images around the web. We learn that Wonder Red had a bit of a receding hairline in his original design — the initial designer of the character likes balding men, apparently — and get an insight into the sort of documentation that goes behind putting together a complex video game, even one as anarchic as The Wonderful 101.

Check it out below and let us know what you think.

I used to follow this guy on twitter... But he seems to be such a sad and angry person... I really don't understand him!

The amount of "tweets" he gets is crazy and honestly people constantly asking the same thing can become frustrating and overwhelming.

I truly respect the fact that he always takes the opportunity to credit his team and that it took the whole team to make the game a reality.

I can't wait to pick up Wonderful 101 this Sunday!!

@WanderingPB he gets a lot of tweets because he keeps answering them... If he would just ignore them in the beginning people wouldn't tweet him very much.

i can see 1 of the 3 secret characters is Bayonetta but idk who the other 2 are lol



SecondServing said:

@Volmun I'm pretty sure the one the left is Jeanne and the other one is either the black dude from Bayonetta or Jack from Madworld.



WanderingPB said:


very true he could just ignore them but he chooses to respond back and it's either understood or taken negatively at least he speaks his mind.

Lucky 4 me i dont have a twitter account nor care to ever get one so i'll neer know the nonsense it brings kinda like sum youtube comments im good without it

@Savino I think that might have to do with the shear amount of ridiculous questions people ask hime day in day out.

I am getting sick of hearing about The Wonderful 101. This game isn't important and is going to be completely forgotten in two months.

@WanderingPB I don't know why people use twitter, especially celebrities. See,s like every other day another celebrity or politician is getting themselves in trouble with tweets...
