Just 3 hours after platinum games posted their Kickstarter campaign to pull The Wonderful 101 out of the Wii U shipwreck, over 9,200 people have joined rescue attempts and raised over £450,000.
The original pledged goal of £37,989 goal was set to get the game onto Nintendo Switch, clearly fans are eager to see the stretch goals reached and the game available on even more platforms as its now coming to Steam and PS4. Previously, the game had no choice but to go down with a sinking ship named Wii U. Now, the developers want to bring the game to a much bigger audience, on multiple platforms and it looks like people are willing to make that happen.
“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! When the peaceful Blossom City comes under attack by alien invaders, Wonder-Red, Wonder-Blue, and the rest of the Wonderful Ones suit up and unite to save the world!”
