It is not the first time that Platinum Games has spoken about the possibility of seeing a sequel to The Wonderful 101. Now that the title has been released on new platforms with enough success, the plans could indeed go even further.
It’s no secret that Platinum Games has wanted to make a sequel for a while, and it’s likely to end up happening very soon. But if such a thing happens, what prism would it have?
Speaking to GameXplain in a YouTube video interview, producer Atsushi Inaba and director Hideki Kamiya embrace the issue by imagining how they would encompass the development of a new TW101. And we anticipate that it is more ambitious than it seems.
How The Wonderful 101 Sequel Looks Like
PlatinumGames producer Atsushi Inaba and director Hideki Kamiya have confirmed in a recent meeting with GameXplain that the company is open to the idea of offering a “bigger and better” sequel than the first game. These are the statements they have provided, where Kamiya acknowledges that the concept of a sequel is a little scary:
“It scares me to imagine if we would meet our expectations.”
“There is not a single moment when I did not want to make a sequel to this game,” says Inaba. “If you are going to do a sequel, you always have to aim for something bigger and better, can we do it? We think there is a lot of content and a lot of quality in the original. Right now, we believe it would be cool if it ever happened. It was all a challenge. “
Kamiya supports his partner’s words: “In games I’ve done in the past, I’ve tended to adjust the size of the game, the scale, up to say ten; and then as time goes by throughout development, suddenly that ten becomes eleven, and then twelve, then thirteen, then fourteen… I think that’s the way it was with Wonderful 101, and I feel like as Inaba-san says, we would have to aim, you know, bigger and better for the next one. that when I think about the word sequel, and I think about the size we ended up within the original, I am a little scared to imagine if we would get out of the mess we’ve got ourselves into. “
Whether there is a new TW101 on the way or not, the truth is that right now, Platinum Games has a good list of pending tasks. It starts with that promising Bayonetta 3 that we do not know anything about until today. But that according to Kamiya, it is progressing well.
