Celebrating its 20th Anniversary, the Classic Nintendo Entertainment System Game Makes its Triumphant Return November 23

EDISON, N.J., November 23, 2009 – Majesco Entertainment Company (NASDAQ: COOL), an innovative provider of video games for the mass market, today announced that A Boy and His Blob: Trouble on Blobolonia is now available for download on Virtual Console™. The classic Nintendo Entertainment System™ (NES™) puzzle-platformer celebrates its 20th anniversary by challenging a new generation of gamers as it arrives on Wii™ for the first time. The original game has been one of the most influential in history and inspired the critically acclaimed reimagining of the tale for Wii™ – a boy and his blob -developed by WayForward Technologies earlier this fall.

Taking place in 2001 (the future from its original release), the game’s touching storyline begins when an Evil Emperor imprisons the inhabitants of Blobolonia. One brave soul by the name of Blob, full name Blobert, escapes his home planet looking for help. He crash-lands on Earth only to find a young boy. Luckily, when the Boy feeds Blobert flavored jellybeans, the blob transforms into various helpful shapes such as the Licorice Ladder, Fruit-Punch Hole and Hummingbird Honey. Using the magical candy and teamwork, the duo sets out to free Blobolonia and vanquish the Evil Emperor as they traverse through the head-scratching, side-scrolling puzzle action that has become legend in the annals of videogame history.

Thanks to the folks over at ONM for the news tip!

“Nintendo has become one of those companies that graduates from colleges and good universities really want to work for. Because of that, the competition’s really become so fierce for positions. And that means that a lot of the recent recruits for Nintendo have tended to have the higher degree from the prestigious colleges and universities and whatnot. I often say to Mr Iwata: ‘If I was applying for a job here today, I, with my actual college degree, would probably not have been employed by Nintendo’. I might pick up on [applicants] and try to find out something really different within them which you can’t judge just by a college degree. That’s one of the special little jobs I set myself.” – Shigeru Miyamoto

Could you imagine if Shigeru Miyamoto never had an opportunity to work for Nintendo? I can’t even begin to think of how different the company would be today. Miyamoto has played such a vital role in all of Nintendo’s franchises, and even some of the small titles published by the company.

“Well, I should say that it could be taken as a compliment if others are following suit, by saying Nintendo was right in choosing a certain direction. But if you ask me if that is going to be good for the entire business, I really don’t know. If everyone else is going to do exactly the same thing, unfortunately in this entertainment business that means less uniqueness, and uniqueness is what Nintendo has tried to realise. We don’t look to the future in one direction only. When you say that one element of our uniqueness might have been lost, you don’t really have to be concerned about that, because Nintendo always tries to find something new. I hope you are looking forward to our challenge to discover this new uniqueness!” – Shigeru Miyamoto

I feel like with each new Nintendo handheld or console, the company is always trying to innovate. Both the Wii and DS received heavy skepticism when they were initially revealed. Heck, even I admit that I was skeptical! Yet the uniqueness that Nintendo has provided the industry has been fantastic and something tells me that we’ll see something special for the next system.
