Kickstarter gave us The Wonderful 101 Remastered, but Nintendo may still own the I.P.

I forgot how much I loved The Wonderful 101. Though I only got to play the upcoming remastered version on Switch for ten minutes or so, it still left me impressed. Some of the puzzles that were specifically designed for the Wii U's dual screen set up are almost painfully easy on a single display, and I miss the optional touch controls, but those are easy things to look past when a game is this bursting at the gills with other features to gawk over.

Using your team to transform into a ball, then a hang gliders, then a giant sword, and eventually, a giant piece of jello all in rapid succession? Often times it feels like the only thing limiting you is your own imagination, making The Wonderful 101 feel like the best Green Lantern game never made, just begging to be replayed. 

From the sounds of it though, we were very close to seeing the last of these underdog heroes. If it weren't for Kickstarter, and what could be a one-time deal with Nintendo, The Wonderful 101 might have been a one-and-done.
