Kamiya hopes 'Fans of Viewtiful Joe enjoy Luka's side-story in The Wonderful 101 Remastered'

With PAX East closing it's doors, Platinum games is in exciting territory. Aftering hosting their first ever booth at the event, and with just 4 days left on a Kickstarter for their first self published title, The Wonderful 101 Remastered. I got to speak to Platinum's Hideki Kamiya and Atsuhi Inaba about this bold new direction for the company, their plans for the remake, and how it all relates to their past, present and future. Of course, for me, that meant bringing up Viewtiful Joe, one of my favorite games in Inaba and Kamiya's long partnership. 

Specifically, I wanted to know if the stretch goal content for Remastered would play like the now-classic 2D action title. Entitled "Luka's First Mission" this "brand new 2D side scrolling adventure starring a young hero" is one of the first times they have revisited the genre since their Viewtiful Joe days, so I couldn't help but get my hopes up. Now that I've talked to them both, my hopes are even higher.
