The Wonderful 101: Remastered's physical release delayed due to coronavirus

Affected backers will get a free Steam code.

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.

By way of apology, the developer will be providing all physical backers with a Steam code, so they have the option of playing at the same time as digital backers. Distribution of all digital codes will begin on 7th May, it says, with the goal of getting them out ahead of retail release.

"We thank everyone for their patience in these unpredictable times, and hope you are all staying safe and healthy," the developer concluded.
