de Blob DS

YouTuber RebelTaxi has managed to secure an early build of de Blob DS, which was originally being made by Helixe. This version of the game was ultimately cancelled.

THQ ended up publishing one version of de Blob for Wii (which is on Switch by the way), and also had plans for another on DS. Blue Tongue Entertainment was in charge of the former. Helixe was planned to handle the DS version, but their work was ultimately scrapped entirely.

After de Blob originally debuted on Wii, it’s returning on Switch on Tuesday after all these years. Get a look at some footage below.

de Blob is just a few weeks out from reaching Switch. The Wii classic will be available on Nintendo’s new console starting June 26, THQ Nordic announced today.

de Blob didn’t achieve massive success, but the series was one of the more interesting experiments on Wii. THQ Nordic business and product development director Reinhard Pollice believes that the franchise has potentially, calling it “the perfect indie game.” Pollice added in an interview with GamesIndustry that de Blob “was a bit underrepresented on Wii,” and it should have been on Steam for the potential of being “a massive success.”

He said:

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.
