Could a Switch port be announced at E3 2019?
PlatinumGames is fairly busy this year, with Astral Chain coming to the Nintendo Switch, Babylon’s Fall still slated for the PS4 and PC, and other unannounced projects (with Bayonetta 3 also in the works). Could a Switch port of The Wonderful 101, the quirky Wii U action adventure from 2013, also be in development? Maybe, maybe not, but a recent interview with Platinum’s executive director and producer Atsushi Inaba does make you think.
At the BitSummit 7 Spirits, Inaba was asked by Gematsu what fans needed to do to make PlatinumGames bring The Wonderful 101 to Switch. Inaba previously talked about the title being Switch-bound and responded, “Yeah, I think I said that on multiple occasions. And I’m glad that I did. So if you could be patient with it, that’ll be great.”
Be patient until the upcoming Nintendo Direct on June 11th at 9 AM PT? Perhaps especially since it’s smack dab at the beginning of E3 opening up. Expect a number of other high profile announcements from Nintendo regarding The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening and Luigi’s Mansion 3 (which will also be playable on the show floor). But keep your fingers crossed for The Wonderful 101 just in case.
