Nordic Games purchased a number of THQ IPs last year including Darksiders. Now you can add another franchise to the list: de Blob.

Nordic announced today that it successfully acquired de Blob from THQ. The company’s Reinhard Pollice said:

“de Blob is just a great and truly unique franchise. We are excited about what the future holds for this polychromatic extravaganza as the newest addition to our portfolio. We will evaluate opportunities with the existing games, as well as potential sequels.”

At least for the time being, it’s unclear how much Nordic paid to acquire the de Blob IP.

Yesterday, Renegade Kid confirmed that the studio is now in possession of the Dementium IP. That means the company is free to do anything and everything with the franchise.

Renegade Kid co-founder Jools Watsham has since issued a statement about the situation to Eurogamer, and told the site, “We will be exploring all possibilities, including sequels and ports, and we’re open to the idea of working with a publishing partner or going solo.”

The full comment reads:

“We’re very excited about having Dementium return home. We will be exploring all possibilities, including sequels and ports, and we’re open to the idea of working with a publishing partner or going solo. We haven’t ruled it out, but we do not currently plan to do a Dementium kickstarter campaign. It is pretty great to have these options with a brand that both our loyal fear-loving fans and us love so dearly, and so dreadfully. The team is really looking forward to lose their minds again in the blood-soaked corridors of Dementium.”

GameMill Entertainment has announced Big Hero 6: Battle in the Bay, a new action-adventure platforming game for 3DS and DS. It’s due out this fall in North America.

Here’s a brief overview:

Set after the events of the film, the game follows robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada and his like-minded friends turned heroes – Baymax, GoGo Tomago, Wasabi, Honey Lemon, and Fred – as they attempt to save the city of San Fransokyo from a battlebot invasion. The adventurous gameplay is brought to life with vibrant comic-style storytelling that gives players control of the stars of the film in this action-packed combat platformer.

Disney Big Hero 6: Battle in the Bay lets players interact with all six members of the squad, each in unique ways. Playable characters include Fred, boasting over-the-top power; GoGo, specializing in speed; Wasabi, featuring fast-paced combat skills; and Hiro who’s adept at platforming. Baymax and Honey Lemon also show up to support players throughout gameplay. Each of the adventure’s 20 story levels is tailored to reflect and test the talents of a specific character with a diverse assortment of enemies and environmental hazards. The game also offers climactic boss showdowns, hidden collectibles that unlock potent upgrades for the crew and special Challenge Mode versions of each stage.
