In case you missed the game’s original announcement, check out the trailer for the game here:
Aside from featuring a colorful art style and interesting gameplay, Balan Wonderworld is exciting because it is being created by Yuji Naka and Naoto Oshima–the co-creators of the Sonic the Hedgehog series.
Balan Wonderworld is described by Square Enix as:
“BALAN WONDERWORLD is a wondrous action-platformer game themed around a mysterious musical theatre.
The stars of the show will use special abilities from a multitude of characterful costumes as they adventure in the bizarre and imaginary land of Wonderworld. Here memories and vistas from the real world mix with the things that people hold dear.
Twelve different tales await our stars in Wonderworld, each with their own unique quirks. They will explore all corners of these labyrinthine stages, using all the tricks and gimmicks hidden along the way, to get to the heart of each touching story.”
Balan Wonderworld releases on the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Switch, and PC on March 26, 2021.
