PlatinumGames Admits Great 101 Kickstarter Had Nothing To Do With Elevating Funds

Japanese studio PlatinumGames shocked fairly just a few individuals when it launched a crowdfunding marketing campaign for a remaster of the Wii U title Great 101; not solely was the sport a Nintendo unique, it was additionally one thing of a industrial flop upon launch.

PlatinumGames later revealed that it had accomplished a take care of Nintendo to relaunch the title, however there have been nonetheless questions over why the corporate had determined to take the Kickstarter route – particularly when it was confirmed that the sport would launch in Could of this 12 months.

In an interview with Gematsu at PAX East, PlatinumGames’ Atsushi Inaba lastly admitted what many had suspected – the Kickstarter wasn’t something to do with elevating funds, however extra to gauge curiosity in such a challenge:

Properly the precise motive we determined to do a Kickstarter marketing campaign was not for funding in any respect, it was extra about gauging curiosity in The Great 101. It is a sport we’ve at all times wished to revisit sooner or later in time, so we thought it might be a very good alternative to deliver the followers collectively—to unite them—and gauge curiosity. And in essence, to launch the sport. So it wasn’t actually concerning the quantity of funding in any respect, it was about self-publishing, bringing followers collectively, and revisiting The Great 101.

When requested what the Kickstarter funds can be used for, Inaba added:

First off, the cash goes in the direction of the manufacturing of all the products—I don’t know for those who’ve seen all of the tiers and their rewards, however these value cash to supply. The remainder of the cash goes in the direction of the extra content material that will probably be added to the sport. All that prices cash, and it takes time and work to port the sport to the extra platforms. I wish to make clear that we didn’t do the marketing campaign to ‘get cash’ or something like that—that wasn’t the purpose of it. The primary objective was to deliver the followers collectively, gauge curiosity, and discover a great way to revisit and launch the sport.

The Great 101 will launch in North America on 19th Could, in Europe on 22nd Could, and in Japan on 11th June.
