The Wonderful 101: Remastered‘s promised Time Attack DLC mode is launching for Switch, PS4, and Steam today, PlatinumGames has confirmed.
The DLC was initially announced as a stretch goal for the game’s Kickstarter campaign back in February 2020, alongside ‘Luka’s First Mission’, a new side-scrolling adventure. The team at PlatinumGames shared a message to backers today to inform them of the new DLC release and to apologise for the wait.
“From all of us here at PlatinumGames, sorry to have kept you waiting!
The time has finally come for us to release the additional Time Attack mode DLC promised as one of the stretch goals reached during the Kickstarter campaign and made possible by all of you wonderful backers.
This new game mode lets you try a speedrun of any stage you choose and compare your times online against players from around the world. And in order to make the experience even smoother, we’ve added a feature that automatically skips minor cut scenes! This makes it easier for you to experience the pure action of the game and hone your skills while improving your times.
Every second counts when the world is on the line, heroes! And for those of you who have already beaten The Wonderful 101: Remastered, a new challenging world awaits.”
To celebrate the DLC’s release and the one-year anniversary of the game’s launch, Hideki Kamiya will soon feature in a livestream, playing the new Time Attack mode on air and sharing “new information” on the game. The stream will kick off at 8pm Pacific / 11pm Eastern on 19th June, and can be viewed below.
