Platinum tried to add Miis to The Wonderful 101

Hideki Kamiya hopes to make you the hero in a sequel

Hidekia Kamiya is a surprising man. He takes games in directions (and, whisper it, to consoles) that others would be terrified to, he'll occasionally CAPS-shout "your mom" at fans, and today he took to Twitter to look back at the development of The Wonderful 101 - specifically the fact that Miis weren't included.

Whether he means that a Mii would simply have become one of the 1-double-O, or a fully-fledged main character we're not sure, but it's another facet to 101's strange development process, which began as a brawler that with a cast made up entirely of Nintendo and third-party characters.

It's also nice to see that 101, despite its struggle at retail (if not Team ONM's hearts), he's still holding on for a sequel. I'll be loudly and irritatingly hoping for one, Miis or no.

Thanks to Nintendo Everything for the spot.

    I really hope the Wonderful 101 gets a sequel. It was (as the name suggests) Wonderful! Hopefully the super heroes will get another game some time soon.

    Don't all Wii U games have poor sales?

    The wonderful 102 would be phenominal! Even that little snippet of Kamaya mentioning the thought gets me giddy with excitement!

    Would all Miis play the same, though, or would there be a degree of customisation?
