During last week’s Nintendo Partner Direct, Square Enix unveiled Balan Wonderworld; a brand-new action-platformer from the creators of Sonic the Hedgehog. The game will be available on Nintendo Switch, PC (via Steam), PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series S|X.
Balan Wonderworld will have players explore the land of Wonderworld guided by Balan, a maestro, who will help players rid the world of Negati; physical manifestations of worry and other negative emotions.
Players will be able to collect over 80 unique costumes, each with their own special power whether it be the Pumpkin Puncher outfit that lets players smash through enemies or obstacles blocking pathways to the Air Cat costume that allows players to walk in mid-air for a certain amount of time.
The latest trailer below showcases the game’s cooperative multiplayer feature where two players can explore the game in local co-op, using creativity to overcome challenges by finding ideal combinations of costumes that work well together.
While they can work independently, if they are close enough, they’ll be able to trigger the Joint Play feature which allows them to use their special ability at the same time.
