Blobolonia is in trouble, but it’s not too late to save it, as the beloved classic A Boy and His Blob is launching on Nintendo Switch on November 4, 2021, courtesy of Ziggurat Interactive. Experience the charm and challenge of the classic 2D puzzle-platformer on the go, and forge a friendship with a blob that will last a lifetime.
The game is now available for pre-order for $14.99 USD on the Nintendo eShop.
Originally developed by Wayforward Technologies in 2009 — and based on David Crane’s NES game of the same name — A Boy and His Blob takes place in Blobolonia, a far-off kingdom under siege by an evil tyrant. A brave “blob” has escaped to search for help, but has crash-landed on planet Earth. He finds what he’s looking for in the form of an adventurous young boy who’s ready to lend a hand and save Blobolonia. In the game, players will control both the boy and his blobby friend, as they explore beautiful hand-drawn 2D worlds, and face an array of puzzling challenges. Depending on the obstacle, players must feed a variety of jelly beans to the blob, turning them into useful shapes or objects to solve puzzles and defeat enemies.
