A Boy and His Blob Nintendo Switch release date November 4, 2021 WayForward Ziggurat Interactive

Publisher Ziggurat Interactive and developer WayForward have announced that A Boy and His Blob is coming to the Nintendo Switch eShop with a release date of November 4, 2021, retailing for $14.99. This is a port of the 2009 Wii game, which was in turn a reimagining of the 1989 NES game, A Boy and His Blob: Trouble on Blobolonia. The Wii title received a positive reception back when it first came out, so hopefully this unique puzzle platformer will be just as fun over a decade later. The game has a special “hug” button, which is surely a step in the right direction.

Here are features to expect in A Boy and His Blob on Nintendo Switch, complete with exclamation points to emphasize how exciting it is:

  • Experience a heartwarming story told through beautiful hand-drawn and animated illustrations!
  • Feed the blob jelly beans to activate 15 useful transformations like the Tangerine Trampoline, Licorice Ladder, and Root Beer Rocket.
  • Traverse woods, swamps, caves, the Blobolonian Outskirts, and even the Emperor’s Citadel through 40 breathtaking levels filled with hidden treasures!
  • Collect treasure chests to unlock 40 additional challenge levels that will put your skills to the ultimate test!

A Boy and His Blob was directed by Sean Valasco, who would go on to found Yacht Club Games and give Shovel Knight to the world.
