The Wonderful 101: Remastered — May 19
Available on: PS4, PC, Switch
Thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign, Platinum Games’ cult classic is back, with an improved framerate, graphics, and controls. For those who missed out on the game the first time, here’s the gist: 100 superheroes can fuse together into giant fists, guns, and more to leap through levels, solve puzzles, and beat bosses. Physical copies of the remaster are unfortunately delayed due to coronavirus, but the May 19 launch date is locked in for the digital release.
