Square Enix has announced that it will release a free demo for the upcoming 3D action-platformer video game Balan Wonderworld next week starting January 28th on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC via Steam. If you've been wanting to give the title from former Sonic the Hedgehog developers like character designer Naoto Ohshima and director Yuji Naka a go, chances are good you have some sort of platform to do so with considering the wide range. The full title is set to release on March 26th.
More specifically, the demo will allow up to two players to explore several different worlds in local co-op or solo. Based on Square Enix's description, it would appear that all of World 1 will be playable in the demo with some parts of World 4 and World 6 available to play as well. All of these appear to be woven out of the hearts and memories of different people.
