Begin a new epic adventure through forests, ice, space and more in Balan Wonderworld.
From Square Enix and the team behind Sonic the Hedgehog, Balan Wonderworld is a delightfully colourful adventure that we can’t wait to get our hands on. During yesterday’s Nintendo Direct Mini, we got a new trailer and a release date:it’s set to release on Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X and PC on March 26th 2021.
In the game, players will explore the exciting and whimsical Wonderworld. They’re guided along the way by Balan who wants to help players restore balance by clearing the world of Negati. Negati are the physical manifestations of worry and other negative emotions.
Players will be able to jump, climb, fly and fight their way through different areas, taking out Negati along the way. You’ll also collect over 80 unique costumes as you play, each with its own abilities to utilise. The Pumpkin Puncher outfit, for example, gives players the ability to smash through obstacles. And the Air Cat costume lets players walk in mid-air for a short amount of time.
Balan Wonderworld can also be played in co-op, and you can see it in action in the trailer below. Two local players can explore the game together; either working independently or teaming up in “joint play” and utilising their costumes’ abilities together.
We’ll have more information on the game closer to its release next year. Until then, enjoy the beautifully colourful trailer below. More information can be found on the game’s official website.
