Review: The Wonderful 101 Remastered doesn’t try to fix what wasn’t broken

Platinum’s eccentric action game is as entertaining as ever

Game director
Hideki Kamiya
Key Credits
Atsushi Inaba (Producer), Hiroshi Yamaguchi (Lead Composer)

The Wii U classic is just as entertaining as it was back in the day, even if it’s more of a port than a remaster.

  • Still a gloriously silly, over-the-top hack ‘n slasher.
  • Improved resolution and frame rate.
  • A wonderful (ahem) soundtrack.
  • It misses Wii U's second screen.
4 / 5
Version tested
