Balan Wonderworld

The demo for Balan Wonderworld will soon become inaccessible. As announced officially by Square Enix, all platforms (including the Switch eShop) will have it removed today – specifically at 11:59 PM Japan time. The company did not provide an official explanation as to why it will no longer be offered. Those that already have it downloaded will presumably still be able to access the demo.

For giving the demo a go, Balan Wonderworld players were able to unlock a costume in the full game. Square Enix says that it will share information regarding how it can be obtained without the trial down the road.

Balan Wonderworld is out now on Switch. The demo originally released at the end of January.

New Pokemon Snap

The original Pokemon Snap had just 63 creatures to catch. For the series’ first new entry in more than twenty years, that number has increased substantially. New Pokemon Snap on Switch will feature over 200 Pokemon.

It’s worth noting that when the N64 title originally debuted, there weren’t nearly as many Pokemon back then. There have been several generations over the years and we’re not very far away from 1,000 designs in total. So how did the New Pokemon Snap team go about choosing Pokemon for the new title?

The Pokemon Company has announced that a new update will be distributed for Pokemon Home in June. Once live, it will end support for certain devices.
