Balan Wonderworld is a platformer game developed by Balan Company and Square Enix. The platformer is way below the expectations of what it looks like.
Balan Wonderworld is a disaster when it comes to sales
Balan Wonderworld was a game not so well acclaimed. Thus, the sales represent it all around the world. According to @CartridgeGames on Twitter, the game sold less than 2,100 copies in Japan during its first week. The game couldn’t hit the Top-30 chart in Japan. Which is a big disaster both for Square Enix and the co-developer Balan Company.
Balan Wonderworld also completely missed the top 30 on the Nintendo eShop in both Japan and North America, as well as the top 40 in the UK retail charts. There is no information about the PlayStation Store. But it is not hard to guess, the game is not good on any platform. So players all around the world regret buying it. And we don’t think that this will change anytime soon.
Eventually, the main problem with Balan Wonderworld is the bad controls, camera movement and difficulty. The developers partly fixed these issues with the day one patch. But this doesn’t mean that everything has a fix. Because the developers say that it is hard to fix some of these issues. Because it directly alters the structure of the game.

We don’t know how Square Enix can fix this bad reputation that came up recently. First, Marvel’s Avengers and now this. There is another Life is Strange gaming coming from the company. Maybe that will fix things for the company. Balan Wonderworld is not a bad game. But when you look from a gamer’s perspective, you can see that the game is developed with a rush. So it will definitely take time to fix some of the major issues. Time will show us what will happen.
