A remaster of cult Wii platformer A Boy and His Blob appears to be imminent with a new listing on the Xbox Store appearing to confirm the game's release on 20 January. Developed by WayForward Technologies and published by Majesco Entertainment, the game was first released in 2009.
Evidence of a release on PC has also been discovered deep in Steam's database, utilising the same art seen on the Xbox page. The only evidence to date of a PS4 version comes from ratings on the PEGI website found in 2015, which also mention a PS Vita version.
The Xbox Story page includes several screenshots and states: "A Boy and His Blob makes its triumphant return! As the boy, you feed Blob jelly beans and watch him transform into cool and useful objects to solve puzzles and escape danger. With its robust and emotionally driven story, challenging puzzles, and visually impressive art style, A Boy and His Blob marks the rerelease of this 2009 cult-classic!"
Dutch developer Abstraction Games is also listed as a developer on the page, likely meaning it is the team working on the ports. They have also worked on ports for Titan Souls, Rogue Legacy, Hotline Miami 2 and, this year, is also working on the 3DS and PS Vita versions of Mighty No 9.
A Boy and His Blob reviewed well back in 2009 but was only ever released on Nintendo's Wii console, meaning it was limited in the audience it could reach. Eurogamer's review called the game "one of the Wii's sweetest surprises".
Game Informer's review meanwhile said: "Like its namesake predecessor [the game is a reimagining of a cult NES game from 1990], a couple of days after setting the controller down, it's hard not to look back on A Boy and His Blob and smile."
As of yet there has been no official announcement about the remaster.
