Square Enix offered not one, but two Balan Wonderworld reveals on October 19, 2020. The first was rather expected. The box art for the game was revealed and it has the major character Maestro Balan, front and center. However, we also received a first look at the Balan Wonderworld opening movie.
First, here’s the Balan Wonderworld box art. Square Enix’s email notice would allow people to access a site where someone could virtually scratch open the curtains to reveal Balan posed before the opening curtains at a theater. Just in case something were to happen to it, here’s the image that was revealed. The PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Switch boxes appear in the bottom right corner.
Then, there was the Balan Wonderworld opening movie. It is about two and a half minutes long and starts in the real world. Leo is in the city, standing by the side of the road, when he sees a Tim go past. The same happens to Emma, who is wandering down a street in a quiet town. The Tims lure each of the children to a hidden away door to a theater to Balan Wonderworld. Once inside, things get a little strange and the show begins.
Balan Wonderworld will come to the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC on March 26, 2021.
