Square Enix has revealed that it ‘recommends Balan Wonderworld with confidence’ in wake of comments from its director, Yuji Naka, who claimed that the game was in a poor state when it was released in March last year.
In case you missed it, Sonic the Hedgehog creator Naka-san revealed last month that he had been removed as the Balan Wonderworld director six months before its launch. As a result, he filed a lawsuit against Square Enix, and was heavily critical of the company for releasing what he claimed was an ‘unfinished’ product.
Speaking during Square Enix’s latest financial call, the staid revealed that it had been involved in a lawsuit with Naka, but didn’t go into any further details. Despite this, the publisher said “it is a game that we recommend with confidence.”
Balan Wonderworld was released for PS5, PS4, PC, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X/S, and Xbox One. The game was slammed by critics (including PSU; be sure to read our review here), and commercially failed to set tills alight.
