Balan Wonderworld Demo Arrives Next Week

A new demo will feature three of Balan Wonderworld's 12 magical locations, and it's coming to nearly every platform imaginable.

We’ve been quite intrigued by Balan Wonderworld since its initial announcement. Developed by Yuji Naka, creator of Sonic the Hedgehog, this new 3D platformer takes us to a world of theatre, where you’ll look to restore balance within the human heart. Published by Square Enix, it’s been confirmed that a demo will arrive on January 28. 

The demo will release on PC (Steam), PS5, PS4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One. Better yet, it can be fully experienced in local co-op, alongside a single-player component. 

Of Balan Wonderworld’s 12 different magical worlds, the upcoming demo features three, taking us to unique settings between the hearts of different humans. World 1 will feature two acts and a boss battle, while World 4 and World 6 only include their respective first acts. 

Speaking previously about the upcoming adventure game, Naka gave us a more in-depth look at its characters, offering profiles for sibling protagonists Leo and Emma. If you’re curious to learn more about this world before the demo drops, it’s worth taking a look. We’ll keep you up to speed at GameSkinny as more news comes in about this intriguing platformer.
