Boy and his Blob Switch release date

A Boy and His Blob, which previously came to Wii, now has a release date on Switch. It’s confirmed for a November 4 launch.

Ziggurat just announced the port at the start of October. With the game planned for November, the turnaround from reveal to release is only a month.

Learn more about A Boy and His Blob with the following overview:

When the planet of Blobolonia fell under the tyrannical rule of the evil Emperor, one brave blob managed to flee in search of help. After crash landing on Earth, the blob finds an unlikely hero in a young boy. Together they must return to Blobolonia and defeat the evil Emperor. Armed with nothing but the power of friendship and a bag full of jelly beans that can transform the blob into fun and versatile tools, this pair of heroes has all they need to take you on an unforgettable adventure.

WayForward’s reimagining of David Crane’s NES classic is a side-scrolling puzzle platformer beloved by children and adults alike. In the game, players control a young boy as he works with the friendly blob to traverse the environment, defeat enemies, and solve puzzles using bravery, wit, and a few jelly beans. Travel from Earth to Blobonia in a beautiful 2D, hand-drawn animated journey.


• Experience a heartwarming story told through beautiful hand-drawn and animated illustrations!

• Feed the blob jelly beans to activate 15 useful transformations like the Tangerine Trampoline, Licorice Ladder, and Root Beer Rocket.
