We’ve learned Platinum Games wants to bring The Wonderful 101 to Nintendo Switch.
The news comes via the company’s key staff Atsushi Inaba and Hideki Kamiya during a Reboot Develop 2018 panel (via Eurogamer) that went down today.
During the panel, Kamiya asked the audience how many people had played The Wonderful 101 on Wii U.
“We’re going to knock the audience participation up a bit,” Kamiya’s translator noted. “They’re still trying to negotiate with Nintendo whether a possible Wonderful 101 Switch release could happen but it always helps when the people in the audience at Reboot clap if they’d actually buy a Switch version of Wonderful 101. So anybody who would buy that, please clap…”
The room burst into applause.
Kamiya also talked up Bayonetta 3, noting the development marks a turning point for their company in how it makes games – however he didn’t go further into this. He also noted that Bayonetta 3 will still remain a linear, action-focused game in terms of progression, however their team wants to add new mechanics and ways to play so they can “raise the bar.”
