The Wonderful 101 sequel could incorporate Miis

By Brenna Hillier, Friday, 17 January 2014 04:13 GMT

The Wonderful 101 was supposed to have players’ Miis in-game as heroes, and if a sequel is developer, Platinum Games hopes this missing feature makes the cut.

Director Hideki Kamiya expressed his hopes to bring a bit more of the player’s own personality in-game in a recent tweet.

“We tried to make it possible to join your own Mii with TW100 as a hero. We hope we can do it in TW102,” he said.

Oh my god, we’re calling it The Wonderful 102? that’s adorable. Anyway, whatever we call it, The Wonderful 102 has not been confirmed or announced; Kamiya is talking hypothetically, and reiterating his desire for such a thing.

It’s reasonably unlikely Kamiya would get the chance to do a sequel should it be green lit; he’s said in the past that he feels obliged to move onto new projects, which is why Bayonetta 2 is out of his hands.

Thanks, Siliconera.
