News: Wonderful 101 cast was originally going to have “all star” Nintendo cast.

Wonderful 101 director, Hideki Kamiya, is on promotion in Germany for the release of the game. According to him, the game concept originally was considered to use an “all star” Nintendo cast;

“Originally I got an order from the president of Platinum Games, Tatsuya Minami, asking me to create a game idea that had an all-star cast of Nintendo characters plus characters from other games and that’s how the project started,” Kamiya told VideoGamer. “I thought how I could satisfy everyone and make everyone happy and I came up with the idea of why not having everyone displayed in the game at the same time. That’s where the idea was born.”

However, the project was put on hold and by the time it resumed, the concept had changed. So we now have 100 new heroes as the story’s characters.
