Unlocked by reaching this new funding goal is Luka’s Second Mission, of which we only have a vague description to guess at what it might be: “Our young hero is back and ready for more adventure.”
Some idea might be gleaned by looking at Luka’s First Mission, which was unlocked when Kickstarter funding reached $1.5 million, and is said to be a “brand new 2D side scrolling adventure starring a young hero.”
Luka appears in the original game as a young, aspiring boy who encounters the Wonderful Ones several times throughout the story. He is eventually inducted into the team under the alias Wonder Googles on account of his goggles that fire laser beams.
Developer PlatinumGames has now revealed two more stretch goals as the Kickstarter enters its final hours. The first, unlocked at $2.25 million, is orchestral recordings for the songs “The Won-Stoppable Wonderful 101” and “Tables Turn.”
The second new goal, unlocked at $2.5 million, is new languages added to the game. No specific languages are mentioned by Platinum asks for fans to let the studio know which languages they most want the game to support if this stretch goal is reached.
The Wonderful 101: Remastered Kickstarter
The Wonderful 101: Remastered was the first of four big announcements that Bayonetta and Nier: Automata developer PlatinumGames has for 2020. The second was a self-published game currently known as Project G.G.. The third announcement was the opening of PlatinumGames Tokyo which will be developing live-service games.
The Wonderful 101: Remastered already has a release date. It will be released for Nintendo Switch, PS4 and Steam on May 19 in North America and May 22 in Europe.
