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.
Get your jelly beans ready and warm-up that hug button, A Boy and His Blob is coming to Nintendo Switch on November 4th!
