PlatinumGames’ decision to crowdfund a remastered version of The Wonderful 101 might seem unusual, but it’s proven to be very successful for the Japanese developer as it looks to take its first steps into self-publishing. They started off with the goal being set at $50,000, with PS4 and PC releases (sorry, Xbox) being set at $250k and $500k respectively, and both of those were achieved within mere hours, with Platinum then adding two more stretch goals to the campaign (with the highest one – a 2D adventure – being at $1.5 million).

And it’s showing no signs of stopping. In less than 24 hours, the Kickstarter campaign crossed the $1 million mark, with PlatinumGames’ Twitter posting a video of their staff (including director Hideki Kamiya) reacting to the moment when it crossed 100 million yen (which would roughly translate to about $915k).

In fact, the campaign’s funds have even crossed $1.1 million. To be more precise, at the moment of writing, that figure stands at over $1.14 million (over 124 million yen). PlatinumGames have even added another new stretch goal for the $1.75 million mark, which would see them adding a remixed soundtrack, with “a secret special guest.”

The Wonderful 101: Remastered is out on Nintendo Switch, PS4, and PC in April. The Kickstarter campaign’s announcement was the first in a series of new reveals, with three more announcements coming soon. Could one of these be a brand new IP? If it is, don’t expect it to be crowdfunded again.
