In a latest 4Gamer interview translated by Siliconera, PlatinumGames’ head Atsushi Inaba spoke about getting permission from Nintendo to launch The Great 101: Remastered on different platforms alongside the Swap model. Surprisingly, Nintendo had no issues with it:
I do know it’s on a very totally different scale, however that’s like speaking about bringing God of Battle to different platforms. However then Nintendo advised us that it was effective, similar to that. And now there’s an opportunity we will launch The Great 101 on platforms corresponding to PS4 and Steam if we attain the stretch objectives for the Crowdfunding.
Since this interview, each of those Kickstarter stretch objectives have been reached.
Inaba added to this, explaining how The Great 101 was initially developed as a second-party title for the Wii U – which means it was as much as Nintendo to resolve whether or not or not it was re-released:
So till Nintendo says let’s do one for the following , we wouldn’t be capable of launch it regardless of how a lot we ask.
When Inaba was requested by VGC about the opportunity of a multi-platform Astral Chain launch, he responded saying it was “finally” Nintendo’s name, as they personal the publishing rights.
