This looks exciting. The soundtrack and captures remind me a lot of the second-best game ever, but possibly due to being from the people behind Sonic (Yuji Naka and Naoto Ohshima), Nintendo Life seem to think it takes cues from Nights Into Dreams and Billy Hatcher - hardly bad things for many on this forum, I'd warrant. It's coming to Switch et al. next spring and it looks lovely.

One of the highlights for me from the Xbox event today was that as I did get Nights and Billy vibes from it

But... but... I have literally 700 other games I haven't started yet... but... it's a 3D platform adventure... exciting!

*gets to end of trailer* uh-oh, singing...
*gets to end of trailer* uh-oh, "look into your heart to see what's most precious"

Someone might need to confirm it's good first!

That looks and sounds amazing!

...but Yuji Naka and Naoto Ohshima have got a poor track record as of late. Since his Sonic days, Naka's best-known works as an executive producer have been Let's Tap, Ivy The Kiwi? and Rodea The Sky Soldier, and none of those games set the world alight. Ohshima did the character designs for many of Artoon's shitey handheld games, like Yoshi's New Island and Hey Pikmin, and was producer for - brr! - FlingSmash.

Sorry to piss on everybody's chips.  Aww!

The vibes are really charming, but it basically comes down to how the character feels to control.

Hmm was going to say Square Enix won't set up a new studio, with high profile industry people and let them put out a dud but then I remember Left Alive which on paper should have been amazing but was awful.

That you might be right Cappa but I take a charming 6/10 next year amongst the AAA stuff to flog PS5's and XSX"s.

Decidedly damp chips now. Aww! (Yoshi's New Island, cripes.) Ah well, fingers crossed it's still worth a play.

I really really like the overall design of this but gameplay wise it looks unsatisfyingly slow for a platformer, probably a harsh criticism for a reveal trailer but I have my doubts early days.

Balan on a console, MonHan on a handheld seems fine to me

I was watching the direct and initially I thought it was releasing imminently. I thought "oh, a shame it will have to compete with Mario".

Then I saw it was literally the same day as MHR. This game is never getting played. Bye Balan.

I'll be honest, it looked a bit ropey to me in that trailer. There was something about the way the characters shuffled about the screen that looked unsatisfying to control. Still, like Buska said, it's coming out the same day as MHR so I'll not be playing this. Laughing

You'll all get bored of Monster Hunter in the first hour. Balan Wonderland will be waiting there for you, with it's low-res graphics and disjointed gameplay.

March 26th is Monster Hunter. If you think that leaves room for other games . . . or interests of any kind . . .
