The team at Digital Foundry is taking a closer look at The Wonderful 101: Remastered on the PS4, Switch, and PC from a technical perspective. Now we have information on the frame rate, resolution, and how each version compares to the original Wii U release.
I feel like this game is unique, its well worth getting the remastering treatment. Initially released in 2013, The Wonderful 101 offered a creative use of the Wii U’s GamePad with the player utilizing the bespoke controller for dual-viewing of the area and for touch controls. You are tasked with saving the Earth from aliens and take charge of a bunch of heroes from The Wonderful 101, which was originally Wonder Red and Blue. Shapes are drawn on-screen via touch (or the right stick) to change skills. As you progress, more heroes will enter the fray until you’re in command of a vast cluster of heroes with a range of different abilities, taking on more prominent and dangerous foes. The comic-book art style is brilliant and goes well with the action, which reminds me of the classic Viewtiful Joe.
What do you think about the differences between each version of the game? Let me know your thoughts down below.
