PlatinumGames have announced that the physical version of The Wonderful 101: Remastered will be delayed, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

We had previously reported that the game’s physical version- as a reward for Kickstarter backers- had been delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Now, we have official word from PlatinumGames that the delay has affected all physical versions, but not digital versions. You can find the full statement (via Twitter) below.

“Due to the spread of COVID-19, the store dates for <physical> versions of The Wonderful 101 have been postponed. New dates are June 30th for NA and July 3rd for EU. We apologize to those who have been anticipating the game’s arrival, and hope everyone is staying safe.

The digital release dates for these regions are still as originally planned: May 19th for NA and May 22nd for EU!”

The Wonderful 101 is a “Unite Action” action-adventure game developed by PlatinumGames Inc., directed by action game luminary Hideki Kamiya, and originally released on the Nintendo Wii U.

In this game, players take control of the Wonderful Ones, heroes from all over the world chosen to defend the Earth from all manner extraterrestrial threats!
