PlatinumGames May Be Planning to Bring THE WONDERFUL 101 to PS4, Nintendo Switch and Xbox One
While the news hasn't been officially confirmed just yet, chances are that PlatinumGames is planning to bring the Wii U-exclusive Wonderful 101 to other modern gaming platforms — namely, PlayStation 4, Switch, and possibly Xbox One.
According to YouTuber GameXplain, the team at PlatinumGames is getting ready to self-publish their first title — The Wonderful 101 — on the most popular consoles of this generation. Although GameXplain's sources have confirmed that the action-packed game is all but officially on the way to the Switch and PlayStation 4, the title might also be available for Xbox One at a later date.
To make it happen, PlatinumGames will need players' help and money, as the Japanese game developer is seemingly set and ready to run a Kickstarter campaign to secure The Wonderful 101's console ports.
Published by Nintendo for Wii U in September 2013, The Wonderful 101 received generally positive reviews from critics, sitting at a perfectly fine 78/100 score on Metacritic. In the game, the player controls a squad of superheroes who try to do everything they can to protect the planet from an impending alien invasion.
At the time of writing, neither Nintendo nor PlatinumGames had revealed any plans to bring the beloved Wonderful 101 to modern consoles, so please take the news with a healthy dose of salt for the time being.
