Art of Balance

Art of Balance is coming to witch via the Nintendo eShop on October 4 for $8.99 / 8.99, developer Shin’en Multimedia announced.

The physics-based puzzle game first launched for Wii in 2010, followed by Wii U in 2013 and PlayStation 4 in 2016. A 3DS version titled Art of Balance Touch!Was also released in 2012.

Here is an overview of the game, via Shin’en Multimedia:

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.
