Wonderful 101

Yesterday, PlatinumGames revealed a Kickstarter campaign for The Wonderful 101, allowing backers to pledge their support and get a remastered version ported to Switch, PS4 and Steam. The campaign appears to have took the world by storm, amassing an incredible $1 million in just over 12 hours.

As this article goes live, the Kickstarter has been up for 13-and-a-half hours, generating a total of $1,010,374 so far. If you go and check the page for yourself, that number will no doubt be even higher - watching it increase in real-time is a sight to behold.

Incidentally, this means that one of the campaign's new stretch goals has already been hit. Raising $1 million means that backers will also be treated to 'Time Attack', which PlatinumGames is calling "a speedrunner's dream".

If we're honest, when we first heard about this Kickstarter project, we weren't entirely convinced that it'd take off in the way PlatinumGames would have wanted. Turns out we needn't have worried - what an amazing start!

Have you backed the campaign? Do you plan on doing so? One reward tier even lets you get blocked by Hideki Kamiya on Twitter.
