Balan Wonderworld Announced, New 3D Action Platformer From The Creator Of Sonic The Hedgehog
Remember the new “brand” Square Enix established for action games called Balan Company recently? We now have details on what that new game is supposed to be.
The game, Balan Wonderworld, is a new 3D action platformer. And it’s from the creators of Sonic The Hedgehog. Yuji Naka is directing the game with fellow Team Sonic co-founder Naoto Oshima acting as Character Designer. It’s the first time the two collaborated on a game together in 20 years.
Balan Wonderworld has you take on the role of Leo and Emma as they journey through the whimsical and bizarre land of Balan Wonderworld, led by the mysterious maestro Balan.
Gameplay-wise, it kinds of look like Sonic’s 3D games, but with no need to have you go really really fast, the gimmick here is equipping different costumes. Leo and Emma can equip over 80 different costumes, each letting them do cool abilities. Expect boss battles and traditional platforming like climbing and jumping, fun for the whole family.
Balan Wonderworld will be coming to PS4, PS5, PC (Steam), Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Nintendo Switch in Spring 2021.
