The plan of Kickstarter was the other option.
Platinum (apparently) pitched it around to different publishers. Nobody wanted it. Nintendo certainly didn’t want it. Kickstarter is a back-up plan. Liam Robertson (@Doctor_Cupcakes) February 1, 2020

Robertson explains that the license was shared between PlatinumGames and Nintendo, but in theory it is now in the hands of the developers. In response to another question on Twitter, nor ruled out that it also will rescue in the future Scalebound, the game cancelled by Microsoft.
For the ill-informed: no, Nintendo did not ever fully own TW101. They jointly owned the IP. Rumours indicate Platinum may have fully acquired it now. I can’t confirm that part. Liam Robertson (@Doctor_Cupcakes) February 1, 2020
