Majesco Entertainment announced that a 1080p HD version of the game will be released on current gen and PC systems this January. This version of A Boy and His Blob will run at 60 frames per second, and will be available on January 19th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PS Vita, and PC.
A Boy and His Blob was initially released on Wii in 2009 and received praise for its clever platforming and unique storytelling. The gameplay consists of finding different jellybeans, then giving the candy to the blob in order to transform him into certain shapes. Once the blob is shaped like an anvil or bowling ball, for example, certain obstacles can be overcome.
The Wii version itself was a re-imagining of an NES title, from all the way back in 1989, titled A Boy and His Blob: Trouble on Blobolonia. While no price has yet been announced for this new version of A Boy and His Blob, the delightful art style and well-crafted gameplay should merit some interest from platform and puzzle fans alike.
