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.
