The Wonderful 101: Remastered Kickstarter Ends With $2.22 Million Pledged

Platinum Games’ Kickstarter for the remake of its 2013 Wii U game The Wonderful 101 has finished with more than 40 times its initial goal.

The campaign ended up with a total of $2,222,546 pledged by 33,199 backers, with almost $200,000 being pledged in the last 24 hours.

While the Kickstarter didn’t quite make it to the last-minute $2.25 million stretch goal, which would see two new orchestral recordings added to the game, chatter on the project’s countdown livestream suggested that non-Kickstarter donations would still push them over that goal.

After reaching its initial funding goal in just 30 minutes, the Kickstarter added stretch goals such as Switch, Steam and PS4 releases, two extra missions and a remixed soundtrack.

While the Kickstarter has been a definite financial success, producer Atushi Inaba has previously said that the campaign was more about gauging fan interest than actual funding–now it seems there’s plenty of both.

The Wonderful 101 remaster will be self-published by Platinum Games, and thanks to its backers will be available on Switch, PC and PS4. The game will release on May 19 in North America, May 22 in Europe and June 11 in Japan.
