Thanks to Kickstarters The Wonderful 101: Remastered will receive a “brand new 2D side-scrolling adventure” action spin-off game in which players will take the role of Luka. “Luka is a boy who plays a very important role in The Wonderful 101: Remastered,” the Kickstarter campaign states. “Will Wedgewood, AKA Wonder-Red, is a teacher at Blossom City Elementary School when he isn’t fighting evil. Luka is one of the students in his class, and also one of the school’s biggest mischief-makers.”
In The Wonderful 101, players control a group of secret heroes plucked from their normal lives to save the world in a time of emergency. Will Wedgewood is a teacher at Blossom City Elementary School, but to some he is known as Wonder-Red, young secret combat service prodigy and soon-to-be leader of The Wonderful 100. Joining him in this elite group is Eliot Hooker, detective with the Los Angeles Police Department in his everyday life, and the man behind the mask of Wonder-Blue.
“Each of the core characters in The Wonderful 101 are defined by their Unite Morph powers, which allow them to transform a group of heroes into objects, such as a giant fist called Unite Hand, a powerful blade by the name of Unite Sword, or even a firearm known as Unite Gun. All Unite Morph powers become more powerful depending on the number of heroes currently recruited, so make sure to keep an eye out for citizens crying “Help!” – adding them to your team will reinforce your unit as you battle the GEATHJERK invaders!”
