If enough people RT this Wonderful 101 remaster tweet, Hideki Kamiya will unblock everyone on Twitter

PlatinumGames game director Hideki Kamiya is known best for two things: making good-ass video games and blocking people on Twitter for the slightest infraction.

If you tweet at him in English, you’re blocked. If you ask a question he’s been asked before, you’re blocked. If you tweet “block me if you love me” at him, you’re blocked, as I once found out.

But now is my chance, and possibly your chance, to finally be unblocked by the dude who basically invented the character action game as it exists today.

A Kickstarter campaign launched this week for a Wonderful 101 remaster and it soared past its target within a few short hours. Now it’s all about stretch goals and social media reach.

“To help The Wonderful Ones rescue the civilians from the annoying Yoo-Dough, click this link and Retweet the tweet,” says the campaign. “The civilians will be saved after the tweet has been retweeted 1700 times.”

Here’s the tweet you need to share:

We’ve so far completed mission 2, which was targeting a goal of 1,700 RTs. Mission 12 gets everyone unblocked by Kamiya.

If you’re into being blocked, there’s also an optional backer reward where you get the honour of being blocked by the man himself. You only have to pay £78 for the privilege. Alternatively, just say hello in English and you’ll get blocked for free.

Wii U game Wonderful 101 is being remastered for Switch, PC, and PS4.
