The Wonderful 101 Specs Show Game Leverages One Platform More Than Others

The Wonderful 101, backed on kickstarter with over a million dollars in donations, has released its specs, with one interesting surprise.

Get ready, superhero fans. The Kickstarter for The Wonderful 101 remaster has absolutely shattered it's $49,337 goal. Sitting at more than $1.4 million as of writing, the fundraiser has achieved four of its six stretch goals, including versions for Switch, PC (Steam), and PS4. 

Now, according to Destructoid, the game's technical specs have shown up on the game's Kickstarter page. It will run at 1080p, 60fps on the Switch docked and 720p, 60fps on the Switch in handheld mode.

What's more, it will run at 1080p, 60fps on the PS4 and (surprisingly) 2160p, 60fps on a PS4 Pro. For Steam, the game is locked at 1080p, 60fps "with super wide monitor support planned."

It's not clear why the game will not run at a higher-than-1080p resolution on the PC when it can reportedly hit 2K on the PS4 Pro. 

Originally announced earlier this week, the game's Kickstarter stretch goals were met less than four hours after going live.

At the $1.5 million mark, an all-new adventure, "Luka's First Mission," will be unlocked. All DLC unlocked by stretch rewards will be free for backers.

Currently, backers still have another 29 days to support the game and nab a slew of backer rewards depending on how much money they're willing to spend. Packages go up to $5,000, though that highest package is almost all sold out.

The Wonderful 101 was originally released in 2013 for the Wii U, a console not many people bought, so it's great to see a beloved title making its return on current-gen platforms.

Though nothing's official, Platinum has penciled in April as a tentative release date for The Wonderful 101, but we'll let you know when we know for sure. Stay tuned to GameSkinny.
