Art of Balance
Yesterday, Shin’en Multimedia finally revealed their second Nintendo Switch game, which is none other than… Art of Balance! It will be released on October 4th in Europe and North America, and will cost 8.99€ / $8.99 / CA$11.49 / £7.99 / AU$13.99. This version is playable in all 3 play modes (TV, Tabletop, Handheld), and can be controlled using the touchscreen, the Joy-Cons, and even the Pro Controller.
Here’s a trailer, some details, and some screenshots:
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 there are plenty of challenges. Some shapes break under load, while others can even reverse gravity and literally turn the stack upside down. With practice, some experimentation and a little bit of luck however 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.
- Arcade Mode – Rotate and place all available shapes to build a balanced stack.
- Tower Tumble – Who will topple the tower first? A multiplayer competition mode for up to 4 players.
- Swift Stacker – Play against others in split-screen head-to-head matches. At home, online or on the go – Who can solve the puzzles faster?
- Endurance Mode – Play a never ending string of puzzles to go for the best scores.
- Infinity Mode – The blocks don’t stop. Build the highest possible stack.
- Play 200 levels spread across 8 worlds, each with its own unique lounge style.
- Build alone or together with up to 3 friends.
- Challenge your friends to split-screen matches at home or on the go.
- Go online and play against other players from all over the world.
- Aim for ever higher scores in the Endurance and Infinity modes.
