The Wonderful 101: Remastered is an action brawler with platforming, quicktime events and rail shooting elements made by PlatinumGames. The game is a remaster of The Wonderful 101 which originally released on August 23, 2013 as an exclusive title for the Wii U. The game uses the Platinum Engine shared by more recent releases Vanquish and Bayonetta.

The remaster was first announced as a crowdfunded Kickstarter project on February 3, 2020, and eventually raised ¥235,320,528 from 33,199 backers and the PC version of the game was a stretch goal.[2][3] The initial release date was set for April 2020, but after a series of delays, a release date was set May 19, 2020 on Steam. Some backers received download Steam codes from May 11, 2020.[4] The game was released May 19, 2020 in North America, May 22 in Europe and June 11 in Japan.[5]

Issue with frame pacing has been identified, and can be fixed using SilentPatch.
