Square Enix released a blog that shared information about the development of Balan Wonderworld is coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch, and PC-via Steam on March 26, 2021.
The post highlighted how the game will incorporate negative and positive emotions into its story and how plays will be able to experience that through the narrative.
However, a significant inclusion in the post states the developers have a day-one patch available that addresses some of the feedback from players of the demo. Producer Noriyoshi Fujimoto sets expectations by saying that there isn’t enough time to implement everything, but they did address the “movement controls, camera movement, and rebalancing of the difficulty.”
Whether this will improve the game’s likelihood for success is yet to be seen, but we’ll definitely enjoy any improvements at this point.
Balan Wonderworld has players set off on a journey through Wonderworld guided by an energetic maestro named Balan, who will help players restore balance to the world by clearing it of Negati, a physical manifestation of worry negative emotions.
During gameplay, players can freely explore the world across multiple areas while collecting over 80 unique costumes that assist in various ways. Each costume has a special power, such as a Pumpkin Puncher outfit that allows players to smash through obstacles. There’s also a co-op mode where players can play together.
