PlatinumGames has revealed that it will host a panel at PAX East 2020, with producer Atsushi Inaba and director Hideki Kamiya to attend.

The panel – called ‘101 things you didn’t know about PlatinumGames’ – promises to be “an illuminating talk,” covering how they first united, where they’re going, and what they have in store for the future.

Those that attend will receive a set of two The Wonderful 101 Remastered limited edition buttons, although they have warned that supplies will be limited.

“We have a very exciting announcement to make. We know a lot of our North American fans weren’t able to see us at Wonder Festival this year, but we have a very special treat for all of you that we think you’re going to love,” the developer explained in a Kickstarter update.

“Members of The Wonderful 101: Remastered team are going to be at PAX East 2020 from February 27th to March 1st. We’ll have a booth at the event, with playable Switch versions of The Wonderful 101: Remastered, and plenty of delicious merch to buy, courtesy of our friends at The Yetee.

“Oh, but that’s not all! We’re also going to be hosting a PAX panel session on Saturday the 29th, starting from 2pm, featuring both Inaba-san and Kamiya-san, live and in charge! This will be your chance to meet them in person, and find out ‘101 things you didn’t know about PlatinumGames.’

“Not able to attend the panel? You’re in luck. PlatinumGames is going to be hosting autograph sessions all four days. Get Kamiya-san and Inaba-san’s signatures on a game, a poster, or anything else you bring with you. We can’t wait to see you there!”
