We recently reported on the fact that German developer Shin'en was teasing a new game for the Nintendo Switch. We can now reveal that the game in question is an update of Art of Balance, the physics puzzler which started life on WiiWare before being ported to Wii U and 3DS.
Rated at 88% on Metacritic, the original Art of Balance was one of the stand-out additions to Nintendo's digital storefront on Wii. This new version features 200 levels, online play and local split-screen multiplayer.
Here's some PR:
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.
