Kamiya prefers not to focus on graphics, has interest in Wonderful 101 sequel


Hideki Kamiya may do a heck of a lot of trolling on Twitter, but he does actually interact with fans quite a bit. Today, Kamiya responded to a couple of items. (Hideki Kamiya, The Wonderful 101, Wii U)

Hopefully the first will be successful enough to warrant future projects.

Kamiya can prefer what he wants. As far as I'm concerned, he's a game design visionary. Hopefully the Wonderful 101 will be successful.

Someone disagreed with you, which I can only assume was done out of ignorance. So for those who are ignorant, let me list out of few of the games Hideki Kamiya has directed:

Viewtiful Joe
Devil May Cry
Resident Evil 2

He's also worked on other games in other capacities, including voice-work for Godot in the third Ace Attorney game. I mean, goddamn, Kamiya is one of those super-talented Japanese developers every gamer should be aware of, along with Shu Takumi and Shigeru Miyamoto.

101 reminds me of The Incredibles
and I love The Incredibles! shame that this is Wii U exclusive as I'm not gonna buy a Wii U just for this. so here's hoping it will see the light of day on the PS4 sooner or later just like the how the 1st Viewtiful Joe found its way to the PS2!
Xof  +   877d ago
I bought a WiiU for this. And Donkey Kong. And Wind Waker. And Pikmin.

I may have jumped the gun a bit. But, really, I'm enjoying the system a LOT more than I thought I would. Only downside is the gamepad can't hold a charge for very long.

The TW101 IP is owned by Nintendo, at least partially, as they funded the game. So I'd say it's not gonna happen.
Dj7FairyTail  +   877d ago
Reggie Fils-Aime says it a New IP by Nintendo developed by Platinum Games.
Dj7FairyTail  +   877d ago
Nintendo owns the IP
Realplaya  +   877d ago
badz149 why do people like you always act like there will only be one good Wii U game coming out.Starting Next month the system will get consistent hits on top of that there are games that haven't been announced because there are other 2 screen devices.
badz149  +   877d ago
I don't act, ok? and...people like me?
I like this kind of games just as I dig Viewtiful Joe and also love LEGO games but I don't find any Mario games to be interesting. I even enjoy Epic Mickey for goodness sake!

I've spent lots and lots of time playing Mario on NES/SNES/N64 and GB and Sonic too on Genesis which is probably why I found them not very interesting anymore! every other new Mario Karts, Mario Party, Tennis, or the side scrolling ones seem like more of the same just with better graphic to me! sure there are many elements added in with every iteration but in the end...they are just Mario games!

I treasure narration more than anything else these days and that's why I watched every second of MGS4 cut-scenes eventhough it was my 1st MGS game! I enjoy Uncharted, TLoU, RDR, GoW for their narrative nature that Mario games are lacking! so..your counter argument will be like "as long as games are fun to play..." stop there, it's not for me! action plaformer between Mario Galaxy and R&C or Sly or Jak...I simply choose the 3 I mentioned latter as they actually have GOOD STORY not just Bowser capture Princess, Mario goes from world to world to save her with Bowser as last boss! how many times do I have to play the same story (if THAT even qualifies as one) over and over?

after narration, I seek for fresh IP thus why 101 intrigued me! I always invest in new IP and indies too but overused character with little to no story? just not my cup of tea!

Dude buy Pandoras tower, last story, xenoblade or x for the wiiu. Metroid other m or the prime series and then you have fatal frame. Even Mario RPG has a narrative. Paper Mario had some great adult humor.
Shadowsteal  +   877d ago
It won't sell. Nintendo fans will miss this next to Mario and Pikmin. If Sony released this maybe on the Vita even, with a a small ad campaign this could've been a lot more successful than condemning it to be sold on Wii U. Game looks awesome though. Jealous. But not enough to warrant a purchase.
PigPen  +   877d ago
Sony games barely sell on Sony system. That sounds wishful for it to be on a Sony hardware.
dafegamer  +   877d ago
you couldnt be more wrong
"sony games barely sell on Sony systems"
Dj7FairyTail  +   877d ago
I getting Pikmin 3, The Wonderful 101, Zelda Wind Waker HD, Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze, Sonic Lost Worlds and Super Mario 3D World.

Also this is a Nintendo IP.

Independent Game Studio does not own IP unless the Publisher who funding and publishing their games allow them to. This was revealed by Nintendo at E3 2012.

You're getting it because there's nothing else to get on Wii U. I'm talking about the average consumer that bought the Wii U for Mario.
--Onilink--  +   877d ago
the only real problem i see for this game "sales-wise" is that its releasing 2 days before GTAV. I guess that most WiiU owners are multiconsole owners, so there's some possible conflict there.. but for my part, ill definitely get it day 1
Xof  +   877d ago
Well, I'm an omniconsole gamer, and I have zero plans to pick up GTAV. Ever. Haven't liked a GTA game since Vice City.
Shadowsteal  +   877d ago
Shame because so far San Andreas was the best.
Dj7FairyTail  +   877d ago
is GTA V on Wii U no.
GTA V is not PS4 and XBONE does that means something.
--Onilink--  +   877d ago
Just because a game is not coming out on the same console doesnt mean that its suddenly free. Anyone who owns more than 1 console will have a choice, gtav or w101. Its a same pool of money even if the consoles are different. And gta is always a sales juggernaut. So even if to some people it doesnt matter because they have money for both, or just dont like GTA, releasing something so close to GTA is a "questionable" decision
Dj7FairyTail  +   877d ago
uh yes it does.
If the people who are getting The Wonderful 101 doesn't care about GTA V or own PS3 or 360 to get it then it doesn't matter to them.

Wii U owners is spending money on Wii U games from August to December with Wii U killer apps comes in then yes The Wonderful 101 is going succeed.

Not to mention the game comes out later next month in Japan, Europe and Australia.
Americas is the only getting in September.
jcnba28  +   877d ago
I don't think that's a big deal though since GTA5 isn't coming to Wii U.
Realplaya  +   877d ago
--Onilink-- If this game is releasing on the Wii U and Grand Theft auto isn't then sales won't be affected.
PigPen  +   877d ago
That is a hard case to argue even if there are some that own two or more consoles.
BATRA  +   877d ago
i'm all ready going to buy this game
