Heroes, it seems that diplomacy has failed. Well, okay, not really, but it does seem like the upcoming The Wonderful 101: Remastered has hit an unfortunate snag. The game was a rousing crowdfunding success, but it looks like the current COVID-19 has had an impact on the game’s physical release.
Via the official Kickstarter, PlatinumGame confirmed that the game’s physical release has been pushed back to next month. And yes, this does include backer copies as well. However, it seems the digital copy of the game will continue on schedule, and backers who are seeing their physical copy delayed will get a free digital code for Steam. They also do say that it’s possible that backer physical copies could see even longer delays depending on what the distribution model is like in their area.
The Wonderful 101: Remastered‘s physical release is now slated for June 30th in US and July 3rd in Europe. Digital codes will start going out to backers starting on the 7th, and the general digital launch still seems to be slated for May 19th.
