Yuji Naka (Sonic) is already working on another game after Balan Wonderworld fiasco
Balan Wonderworld did not live up to the expectations of either Square Enix, nor of the users who were waiting for the new adventure of Yuji Naka, the co-creator of Nothing More and Nothing Less than Sonic the hedgehog. Just days after the outcry, the creator officially announced his departure from the company and abandoned the option of leaving video game development, claiming he was 55 and “the time to retire” was now. may have come. However, we will finally continue to appreciate your work: decided to resume programming studies and design a new title for mobile devices.
As he comments on his Twitter account, taking advantage of the congratulations he received after turning 56, the game is a minor project, developed only by him, something he considers “fun”. There aren’t more details on it, but Naka is hoping we can all try it out as soon as it is released.
Balan Wonderworld: what happened to him?
The launch of the colorful platforms created by Naka left no one indifferent. From the first days, he had to correct various errors via an update due to a bug suspected of causing epileptic seizures in people who are susceptible to it. Once in the hands of the players who bet on him, it seems like there was complete unanimity when it came to evaluating the game and calling it a disappointment. Without going any further, the highest average score in Metacritic was that of the PS5, a platform on which he still has a 51.
In our analysis (5.5 out of 10), we said that it is “a product that we did not expect in this way. It lacks a multitude of features, some too important. It is an attempt to return to these first three-dimensional platforms but without evolving and, at times, regressing. The most striking thing is the use of the costumes and even in that it gets boring. A messy set of ideas that could have been so much better”.
Balan Wonderworld stands available fr PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
