PlatinumGames is posed to have a pretty good year. The company has stumbled in recent times with several flops as well as canceled projects. Now, however, they got an infusion of funds in a partnership with Chinese multimedia giant Tencent, and we’re getting more updates on their upcoming titles. It could also be that a past game they developed could be getting some news soon.
In a random tweet from the company’s official Twitter, there’s a picture of the legendary Hideki Kamiya with someone unknown in the background photobombing. It’s both random and devoid of any context. If you look just a little closer, however, you’ll see the time on his computer is 1:01 and the date is 10/1. This has lead to much speculation that some news related to The Wonderful 101 is coming.
The action game was a collaboration between Nintendo and PlatinumGames that released on the Wii U. It also happens to be the last game to be directed by Kamiya. Nintendo has ported over a large part of their first party Wii U catalog to Switch and Kamiya has expressed interest in wanting to revisit the quirky title. It’s always possible this could just be a goofy picture and the 101s are pure coincidence. We’ll just have to wait and see.
