Affected backers will get a free Steam code.
As part of its announcement, Platinum warned that although Kickstarter backer rewards are “being given the highest priority”, those that opted for the physical version of The Wonderful 101: Remastered as part of their pledge may now, unfortunately, not receive it until after the game’s general retail release, due to logistical challenges.
By way of apology, the developer will be providing all physical backers with a Steam code, so they have the option of playing at the same time as digital backers. Distribution of all digital codes will begin on 7th May, it says, with the goal of getting them out ahead of retail release.
“We thank everyone for their patience in these unpredictable times, and hope you are all staying safe and healthy,” the developer concluded.
