In case you don’t know, Balan Wonderworld follows the adventures of two kids in Balan’s twelve magical world. Each one of the worlds offers a different theme and diverse platforming challenges. In these 3D magical worlds, you should do your best to earn various costumes and use their distinct skills to beat the boss fights. When you play the game in multiplayer mode, you can combine the abilities of two different costumes and open some new paths that couldn’t be reached in the single-player mode.
According to the developers, the demo of Balan Wonderworld will allow players to enter three of the Balan’s magical worlds, including “The Man Who Rages Against the Storm”, “The Boy Who Would Be One with the Wind”, and “The Girl and the Kitten.” It’s worth noting that you will only be able to play the initial Acts of each one of the worlds mentioned earlier.
Aside from worlds, players will gain access to the Isle of Tims, where they can meet various creatures, harvest magical droplets, and fight with Negati. It’s more like an open-world preparation field where players can gear up before entering each world.
Balan Wonderworld will be available on March 26 this year for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Switch, and PC.
