A Boy and His Blob Switch

After it originally came to Wii more than a decade ago, A Boy and His Blob is now on the way to Switch. Ziggurat Interactive announced that it will be putting WayForward’s classic on the console.

A Boy and His Blob was a re-imagining of the classic NES game. It’s a side-scrolling puzzle platformer with 2D hand-drawn animation. You’ll be controlling a young boy as he works with his friend, an alien blob-like creature with shapeshifting abilities that can be used by eating jelly beans. The two will need to defeat enemies and solve puzzles to reach Blobolonia and dethrone the tyrannical Emperor who’s set on world domination. The story is told through hand-drawn and animated illustrations.

Majesco Entertainment has revealed that a new entry in the A Boy and His Blob franchise is in development. While specific platforms haven’t been announced, it’s slated for “all next generation consoles”, which would hopefully include Wii U. A game titled “Glue” is also on the way.

Today’s news comes as Majeso has appointed David Rector as its new CEO. Going forward, the company will be focusing on digital games as opposed to packaged titles.
