Platinum Games wants to bring The Wonderful 101 to Switch

Let them do it, Nintendo.

The Wonderful 101

Platinum Games wants to bring its Nintendo-published Wii U title The Wonderful 101 to Switch, the studio’s Atsushi Inaba and Hideki Kamiya said during a Reboot Develop 2018 talk in Croatia today.

During their talk, Kamiya asked the audience how many people there had played The Wonderful 101.

“We’re going to knock the audience participation up a bit,” said Kamiya’s translator. “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 whole room clapped.

Kamiya also spoke briefly about Bayonetta 3, saying that the game’s development represents a turning point for the company in how it makes games, but did not share further insight. He did say that Bayonetta 3 will be a linear core progression action game, but that Platinum Games also wants to add new gimmicks and ways to play in order to “raise the bar.”
