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.

Anti-aliasing (AA)[edit]

Enhances image quality by forcing a higher quality anti-aliasing method through the display drivers.
Use Nvidia Profile Inspector to force an enhanced method of anti-aliasing
  1. Download Nvidia Profile Inspector and create a new profile for the game.
  2. Under the 1 - Compatibility section, set the following:
    • Antialiasing compatibilit:y 0x084002C0 or 0x084022C0 for higher quality that will also Anti-Alias the Depth of Field (but requires more performance)
    • Antialiasing fix: ON as otherwise the image will be blurry.
  3. Under the 3 - Antialiasing section, set the following:
    • Antialiasing - Mode: Override any application setting
    • Antialiasing - Setting:2x Multisampling,4x Multisampling or 8xQ Multisampling or Any 1x2-4x4 Supersampling mode depending on your hardware and preferences.
    • Additionally you can set Antialiasing - Transparency Supersampling: 2x Sparse Grid Supersampling, 4x Sparse Grid Supersampling, 8x Sparse Grid Supersampling based on what you set Antialiasing - Setting to for full scene AA. Do not use 8xSGSSAA with 0x084022C0 as a bug will break performance in cutscenes with textboxes. You do not need to use SGSSAA and can use MSAA by itself if you wish
