The Wonderful 101 was one of the Wii U's most unique and enjoyable exclusives, but the commercial failure of the console meant it didn't reach as many people as it should have done.
PlatinumGames' Atsushi Inaba and Hideki Kamiya want to change that by releasing the game on Switch, and during a talk at Reboot Develop 2018 in Croatia, Kamiya issued a rallying cry:
We're going to knock the audience participation up a bit. They're still trying to negotiate with Nintendo whether a possible Wonderful 101 Switch release could happen but it always helps when the people in the audience at Reboot clap if they'd actually buy a Switch version of Wonderful 101. So anybody who would buy that, please clap...
After the talk, Eurogamer caught up with Inaba to clarify things. A translator listened to Inaba's reply and then said:
From their perspective obviously there are things they can't talk about, about dealings they have with Nintendo. Certainly they can say everything they said during the speech, which was, 'Hey, we should do that.' But whether that is a 'we are going to do that', and what the likelihood is of that happening, is just going to have to be something you wait to find out.
We certainly wouldn't be against this incredible game getting a new lease of life on Switch, but what about you? Let us know if you'd double dip if it got a re-release by posting a comment below.
