Keep Your Eyes Peeled for Balan Wonderworld Demo

The demo will contain a single player mode as well as multiplayer sections for you to get your teeth into.
What Is Balan Wonderworld?
Balan Wonderworld has a look reminiscent of Nights, a game that came to the Sega Saturn and has a Sonic Team feel to it as you might expect. The game is set in different worlds where you tackle diverse platforming levels in bright and colourful enviornments. There are boss fights and different costumes that will help open up new paths to the players and you will find out more when the Balan Wonderworld demo lands!
Now we know when the demo arrives but when will the full game be unleashed? It releases on March 26th on all formats.
The Last Word on Gaming Viewpoint
A new game from original Sonic developers is enough to get many in the gaming World salivating over this new game. It has been too long and if this game can capture the essence of Sonic games and even Nights, it could well be a surprise star of 2021.
I miss the days of Sega making consoles and although they still produce some good games, a new, from the ground up project has me really excited.
Let’s hope that they nail this one and we see a glorious return to the halcyon days of Sonic!
Last Word on Gaming will have a report on the demo next week, so keep your eyes peeled for that one! In the meantime, check out the official game trailer below.
