Square Enix allowed players a first look at Balan Wonderworld back in January, and the reception was mixed to say the least. Many criticised the movement controls, wonky camera, and general presentation of the game. Our sister site, Nintendo Life, were not impressed to say the least. It looks as though that criticism has been taken on board, as a day one patch is coming, which is said to rectify an array of these issues.
In a new blog post from the game's producer, Noriyoshi Fujimoto, it was acknowledged that there has been "a wide range of opinions and responses to the demo". He later added how "it simply isn't feasible to reflect every piece of feedback into the game", but there will be a day one patch to address some of the problems players have faced.
"There’s been a wide range of opinions and responses to the demo, and unfortunately at the current stage of development, it simply isn't feasible to reflect every piece of feedback into the game. However, to offer you all a more balanced gameplay experience, we will be implementing a day one patch for the full game.
Specifically, this patch will adjust movement controls, camera movement, and rebalancing of the difficulty. There's just over a week left until launch now, so I hope you all enjoy the world of Wonderworld to your heart's content!"
While it won't address everything, it does seem to be a good starting point and may just even rope some people who in who had completely written off the demo. It remains to be seen how effective these updates will be, but with just under two weeks till the game's launch on March 26, it won't be too long to find out.
