Balan Wonderworld Is A New IP From Yuji Naka

Recently, it was found that Square Enix had registered a website for a new studio titled Balan Company. Nobody knew who they were, what they were working on and what to expect, but that mystery was solved as part of Geoff Keighley’s pre-show, with Balan Wonderworld revealed to be a new IP from Sonic the Hedgehog-alum Yuji Naka.

Balan Wonderworld is a brand new 3D action platformer fileld with colourful graphics, cute characters and a general style that is very reminiscent of recent Sonic the Hedgehog games and Nights. With 3D platformers beginning to see a resurgence in recent times, it’s great to see more brand new IPs entering the genre. It’s still yet to be seen just how the game will turn out, but we’re sure interested based on the trailer!

Balan Wonderworld will release on Xbox One and Xbox Series X in the first half of 2021. For more information, check out the official Xbox Newswire post.
