After teasing their current project on Twitter, Shin’en Games announced that their physics-based puzzle game Art of Balance is coming to Nintendo Switch. The game comes out on October 4 on the Nintendo eShop, and will cost 8.99 € / 8.99 US$.



Here’s Shin’en Games’ introduction to the puzzler:

One of the all-time best physics-puzzlers (88% on finally makes its way to Nintendo Switch: Art of Balance.

Puzzle games must be addictive. That’s why we designed 200 levels to not only challenge your skills but also your imagination. With its tight controls, Art of Balance is easy to pick up and hard to put away.

The goal sounds simple at first: Build a balanced stack from all given shapes. But with every world comes a twist, making it increasingly difficult to find a solution. Some shapes break under load, while others can even reverse gravity and literally turn the stack upside down. But don’t fret. With practice, some experimentation and a little bit of luck you’ll quickly master even the most difficult challenges.

Packed with 5 unique game modes, online play and local split-screen, Art of Balance is the ultimate test for aspiring puzzle masters. Three additional players can join in at any time and help you solve the puzzles.

With a relaxing lounge soundtrack and 8 beautiful environments, Art of Balance is the ideal fit for casual gaming sessions alone or with friends. Play at home or on the go and challenge other players on their Nintendo Switch™.


Art of Balance will release on October 4, 2018 in North America, Europe, and Australia. The game is immediately available on Nintendo Wii, Wii U, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo 3DS.
