Nintendo Direct Mini Showcases Gameplay For Balan Wonderworld and Rune Factory 5

On September 17th, 2020, Nintendo dropped their latest Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase presentation. We got a look at some wonderful Nintendo Switch titles coming in 2021, including two that we’re most anxious to play! Personally, I love any games that have costumes and marriage.

Balan Wonderworld

We previously covered this colorful 3D platformer by Square Enix, but now we have a release date of March 26th, 2021, and a look at some of those adorable 80 costumes you can collect and use! Costumes like a puffy sheep to float in the air, and a pumpkin that punches large rocks. We also now know that we can play cooperatively with 2 players as both Leo and Emma!

Although, if you pre-order the the BALAN WONDERWORLD Showtime Set exclusively from the SQUARE ENIX STORE here for $124.99, you get the game, plus the following items below!

  • BALAN WONDERWORLD Original Soundtrack [CD]*
    • Includes bonus MP3 track**
  • BALAN WONDERWORLD Theatre Program -a SHOWTIME SET exclusive-
  • Exclusive SHOWTIME SET Gift with purchases!
    • BALAN WONDERWORLD Unwoven Tote Bag

Rune Factory 5

For the first time, we finally got to see some gameplay for the next main installment of this beloved RPG and farming sim by Marvelous Inc. and XSEED! See below for the official description of the game on Nintendo’s website.

After losing their memory, the hero lands in a small town blessed by nature. There, they are recruited into a band of peacekeeping rangers, and their new life begins. In addition to their normal duties, the hero can farm the land, cast a line into the nearby river, and so much more! Team up with townsfolk to battle monsters and unleash powerful combination attacks—just one of the features new to the series.

  • Tame monsters or team up with townsfolk to explore a massive world
  • Defend the frontier and support your community as a member of a peacekeeping ranger
  • Unleash uniquely powerful combo attacks with your teammates 
  • Cultivate crops in the fields
  • Find friendship, love, and family with a colorful cast of characters
