After Switch launch title Fast RMX developer Shin’en announced yesterday that they would be revealing a game today, mass fan speculation began. Well, now that speculation can be laid to rest, as Shin’en has announced their next Switch title is the Wiiware classic Art of Balance. The game, originally a Wiiware download title (and later ported to Wii U and 3DS), is being updated and brought to Switch on October 4.
Here’s some game info straight from Shin’en:
“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.”
Art of Balance will boast over 200 levels and 5 game modes, and will include local splitscreen and online multiplayer. The game will be available October 4 (next week!) for $8.99 USD.
I never played the game in its earlier iterations, so I’m definitely excited to jump in on the Switch version. There’s no word yet on whether the game will incorporate touch or motion controls, but I’m curious whether either will be implemented here.
