Shin’en Multimedia teased on Sept. 26 the existence of a new game coming to Nintendo Switch. This would be Shin’en’s first title on the platform since Fast RMX, which was a launch title for the system in 2017. Shin’en has now revealed that its new Switch game is Art of Balance:

Art of Balance is a physics-based puzzle game that involves stacking various shapes on top one another in a way that they can’t topple over. It features 200 levels to advance through. The Switch edition sports five game modes, and also has multiplayer in the form of both local split-screen and online matches.
While Art of Balance is new to Switch, this is not a brand-new game. Shin’en started the series on Wii, and it has since been brought to 3DS and Wii U. Thus, it’s not surprising that this Switch release is only going to cost $8.99.
There were expectations that Shin’en would be revealing a new IP rather than another enhanced port, but hopefully, this isn’t the studio’s only project currently in the works. Of course, it has not commented on that notion as of right now.
Art of Balance will drop onto the Switch via the Nintendo eShop on Oct. 4.
