Platinum Games has delayed the physical release of its spruced-up superhero action romp The Wonderful 101: Remastered due to shipping and distribution issues relating to the coronavirus. The digital release will, however, still go ahead as originally planned.
The developer announced the delay in an update to Kickstarter backers earlier today, confirming a revised retail release of 30th June in the US and 3rd July in Europe for the physical version of The Wonderful 101: Remastered. Its digital launch remains unchained, meaning the game will be available to download on PlayStation 4, Switch, and PC on 19th May in North America, and on 22nd May in Europe.
As part of its announcement, Platinum warned that although Kickstarter backer rewards are “being given the highest priority”, those that opted for the physical version of The Wonderful 101: Remastered as part of their pledge may now, unfortunately, not receive it until after the game’s general retail release, due to logistical challenges.
