The official Twitter account for Platinum Games has been dropping hints that may spell a Switch release for the cult Wii U title The Wonderful 101.
A certain tweet from the game’s Japanese Twitter account has all but convinced fans that a Nintendo Switch version is coming in the near future. It depicted an image showing off director Hideki Kamiya and other players enjoying a rousing game of The Wonderful 101, each holding Switch Joy-Con controllers instead of Wii U GamePads.

It’s a sly change that only fans took notice of, especially as The Wonderful 101 has garnered a rabid set of fans since its debut. Though it actually sold quite poorly, it’s been a topic of discussion for Platinum Games fans since it touched players in ways they weren’t expecting — its unique comic style and characters left their mark on anyone who picked up a copy of the game.
This could be a hint that the game is coming to the Nintendo Switch, or it could be a clever ruse, knowing Hideki Kamiya. Either way, given the Switch’s current notoriety as a port machine, The Wonderful 101 would be landing on an excellent home should the powers that be decide it needs to come to the system.
