I am holding this up to the people who are actually distributing the codes. I already emailed them asking what is up.

That said, apparently the people with Steam codes are able to play the game right now, though I thought I saw that there was a problem saving.

Lol jokes on me for ordering physical for switch lol. Also I think in general people who backed the kickstarter get to play the game two weeks before general release. if the pandemic didnt happen we'd all have our digital and physical copies right now.

Playing through this again with zero load times, 1080p, locked 60fps is like a new game. They did the remaster right. Even the picture in picture stuff is adapted fairly well. There are some other changes I’ve noticed as well, they break out the “mystery bonus” score and there’s a new popup that spells out what level a weapon is at when you unlock a new move. And I don’t think you had to buy multi morphs in the original release.

They also made it much much more obvious that you should buy dodge and block right away, there’s a huge pop up after the first mission and they only cost 10 parts each now

I don't like in Platinum Games games where there enemy clearly telegraphs that they are going to attack, so I press the button, but it turns out I pressed it a little bit too soon so my dodge or roll is finished and I get hit before I can press it again. Then when I almost get used to it, there's an orange version of the same enemy and it happens all over again. Then there's the first enemy again but there's three of them at once and I almost got used to it for the orange enemy so I'm pressing the button too soon and getting tripple punished.
If I do manage to beat the game, it turns out that now the real game starts which is grinding the entire game again to get better grades on my report card.


IMHO all this kicks rear end and is why I play their games

I'd also like to know this, and if/how health gets replenished? It seems like sometimes I'll just randomly heal mid-battle and I don't really know what triggers it.

Hell yes I love this game and now I can play it without load times. Backed for a physical switch copy, was planning on getting it on Steam too but now I don't have to worry about that! Installed it on my SSD and I can't even do anything in the combat sim loading screens because they disappear too quickly

It's weird, cause the load times weren't something I really noticed in the Wii U version, but as soon as I started playing on my PC today I noticed how much faster it was, going from like 20-30 second load times to 2-3 seconds.

When you level up your max health increases a little and you heal to full. You can also use items with the D-pad to heal and recharge energy if you need it.

The ssd is probably helping but I would assume they did some optimizations under the hood since the wii u release.

edit: can't do the training sim stuff myself and I'm on a old hard drive. this game is lightning smooth.

Occasionally healing items will drop mid battle from enemies, they’re called wonderful soup. If you run out of dudes hold down the run button and go pick them up. Same if you run out of energy, just run around until it recharges. This game is more about resource management than Bayonetta or even mgr

Jenny Agutter

Another note on energy and health, if you buy the cheapest custom block (energy converter?) it converts those random health pickups to energy if you're already at full health and vice versa.

If you have any sort of PC from the last eight years you should be able to run this game, my venerable GTX970 runs it at 4K with constant 60fps. They put a graphics memory usage estimate in the settings menu, at that resolution it's only using ~800MB vram. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to support higher refresh rates but I'm not going to complain, it's still smooth as hell.

Aside from the obvious changes resulting from the Wii U Game Pad not being a thing anymore, has anything changed from the Wii U version? The Kickstarter and official product description seemed to imply some sort of QoL tweaks, at least ("Hideki Kamiya, director of The Wonderful 101, has supervised this remaster and added numerous improvements to ensure that this game can be more easily and thoroughly enjoyed by all and on various platforms, and with improved visuals, framerate, and loading time for an enhanced experience on all fronts"), but I'm not sure those were ever specified anywhere

Can anyone tell me what the "Full Automatic" Custom Block that you apparently just get as your first Custom Block does? I'm too stupid to find out apparently, and google isn't really helping. Is that a Custom Block they added just for the Remaster?

I equipped it because I have nothing else to go in that slot for now but I'd like to know what the dealio is because it doesn't seem to do anything obvious.

Well the PC port is basically the same as the wii U except no touch screen obviously and a buttery smooth framerate. Seriously they still have the picture in picture function for doing those sections inside.

as someone else mentioned they reduced the cost of guts and dodge, from like 2000 coins each to 10 each, or something like that. Maybe there's more changes further in.

As far as I can tell that's a new inclusion? I don't remember it on OG Wonderful 101. It might make it easier to do the combos.

I think that's basically the "accessibility" option so you can play with one hand or just button mash. Platinum is well regarded for including those options

One think I don't like with the remaster is you buy multi morphs individually now, I.e. you pay 300k for one multi morph, 500k for the second one. It's probably to prevent newcomers from instantly draining all their energy but the cost is steep

I think it has more to do with that multi-morph is really overpowered in the early game- That probably doesn't matter for a single player game that's already balanced but I guess they felt the need to 'correct' that mistake. You can thrash Laambo in a matter of seconds with it and stun lock him indefinitely.

If I remember correctly, full automatic was a thing in the original. I thought you got it by playing on Very Easy, but I'm actually pretty sure that's auto-guts. I do remember full automatic being a thing though.

In any case, I'm glad and relieved that the game works with Proton/Linux out of the box- It's a good port in general really! Not a whole lotta options, but it runs decently on my system which is (CPU wise) well under equipped to run it. I do get slightly more 'Wii U'-esque performance, but much more consistent. I suspect the Vorkken fights won't be as much of a problem either.

There are two things to mitigate this issue. Team attacks/stuns can recover energy (but not as fast as wailing on them with unite morphs) and food items. Do not be discouraged from using wonderful cakes- They do not lower your rank at the end of an operation! ...At least, I believe so. Can't remember if there is a limit but small consumables don't lower rank. Just set it as a quick use item and keep an eye on your battery.
