Hideki Kamiya Would Like to Make a Hack and Slash Spin-off of The Wonderful 101 With Realistic Graphics

The Wonderful 101 has been on the shelves for a little while now, and Director Hideki Kamiya is already thinking ahead and throwing around ideas for possible future games.

This time around he’s apparently thinking about a “serious” hack and slash spin-off of the superhero title with realistic graphics and Wonder Blue as a protagonist, as he mentioned on Twitter.

I have to say, the idea doesn’t seem so farfetched when thinking about it, and judging from the last tweet of the string (that is a little more cryptic than the rest), there should still be some elements of humor in the game. Can’t imagine the hot-headed, fire-spitting and excessively proud Wonder Blue behaving in a completely serious way.

As for the platforms on which such a game could appear, the answer is the usual.

How do you feel about it? Would you buy that kind of game if Platinum Games were to really develop it?

      Any specific reason why not? Assuming that you have followed Kamiya, Clover and Platinum’s other works, Anarchy Reigns isn’t a MadWorld 2 or Bayonetta 2 (which is coming but yeah) and Viewitiful Joe Red Hot Rumble didn’t kill the VJ franchise.

      Your avatar seems to be from Lords of Shadow too… >_>

    Hell yeah! With similar gameplay mechanics but less filler please!

    • British_Otaku

      I get the feeling that it would be a more straight forward DMC like game featuring Blue, but we haven’t really been told anything but “hack & slash”, “Hey, it’s Blue!” and “spin off of TW101”.

      • WellWisher

        I’d be down with that. But yeah, wait and see….


    no blood please

    stick to the current style please.

      It’s hardly like many of his games actually get sequels… >_>
      He already made it clear that he wants it to be a spinoff and likes making new IP more than continuing franchises, we will probably still get a TW102 as well or at the least have two games from with the same roots.

      It’s just like MadWorld + Bayonetta and Anarchy Reigns.

        a spinoff would be okay…. it just still feels off considering its origin was a quirky comedic style game. The idea of him using some sentai like heroes in a serious hack and slash does sounds awesome just not based off this game please.

    I would buy it as a first day purchase just like I did for W101. Kamiya is my favorite Vdieo Game director. I just really like this game so it’d be awesome if he actually makes this happen. Please do. Maybe some side missions as a detective, only using the Wonder Suit for boss fights? Egh I dunno.
