If you backed Platinum Games’ remaster of The Wonderful 101 and received a blank or invalid code for your Nintendo Switch, don’t panic – Platinum is aware of the issue.
“We have identified the cause of the error situation with The Wonderful 101: Remastered Nintendo Switch codes going out to backers of the Kickstarter, and are working to get the codes out properly,” the studio said on Twitter on 8th May (thanks, VGC). “We apologise for the inconvenience.”

There’s been no update since, however, so quite when backers will receive the correct codes remains to be confirmed. Thankfully, there’s over a week left before the game unlocks, so there’s still plenty of time to get it preloaded.
Platinum Games recently delayed the physical release of its spruced-up superhero action romp The Wonderful 101: Remastered due to shipping and distribution issues relating to the coronavirus. The digital release will, however, still go ahead as originally planned, meaning the game will be available to download on PlayStation 4, Switch, and PC on 19th May in North America, and on 22nd May in Europe.
The crowdfunding campaign for Platinum Games’ The Wonderful 101: Remastered finished up its £38,000 ($50K) Kickstarter with a grand total of ¥235,320,528 – that’s a whopping £1.7 million ($2.2m). The Kickstarter campaign was so successful, it smashed its £1.16 million ($1.5m) stretch goal within hours, prompting Platinum Games to add even more goals early in the campaign.
