Sonic the Hedgehog creator Yuki Naka has teamed up with Square Enix for his next game, named Balan Wonderworld. It's coming to PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 in Spring 2021 and is being pitched as a family-friendly 3D platformer set in a mysterious land packed full of theatre. If you purchase the PS4 version, you'll gain free access to the PS5 edition once you upgrade. Check out the announcement trailer above if that description interests you.
Taking to the stage will also be combined with more than 80 costumes which change gameplay. "The costumes change Leo’s and Emma’s appearances, granting them a wide array of fantastical powers to overcome obstacles that lay in their path and discover exciting new ways to play. The possibilities are endless as you bash your enemies, walk in the air, freeze time and manipulate all kinds of objects with the costumes you collect!"
Yuji Naka is joined by character designer Naoto Oshima, who also worked on the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise. Are you looking forward to this one? Dance and sing in the comments below.
