Miss the good ol’ days of Sonic and Nights into Dreams? Well luckily for us, Square Enix recently revealed Balan Wonderworld, a new 3D action platformer from Sega’s Yuji Naka and Naoto Ohshima. Both have worked on the Sonic and Nights into Dreams titles, with Ohshima himself having created the designs for Sonic and Dr Eggman.

Players will traverse a 3D platformer environment across numerous stages, collecting over 80 different costumes with unique abilities to solve puzzles and fight enemies.
