Re-releasing on January 19th.

The Wii cult classic gets a re-release.

Majesco is bringing the 2009 reboot of 'A Boy and His Blob' to PS4, Xbox One, Vita, and PC via Steam and GOG on January 19th. The PS4 and Vita versions will feature cross-buy, and all versions will run at 1080p and 60FPS.

2009's 'A Boy and His Blob' was a fantastic reimagining by WayForward of the NES classic of the same. As a third party Wii exclusive, it went largely unnoticed by many, but received critical acclaim. This port is developed by Abstraction Games, and no price point has been announced as of yet.

Seeing this game get a re-release is really wonderful. It was something of a hidden gem when it first launched, and still remains one of my favorite WayForward titles to date. Here's hoping it'll capture a much larger audience through the new versions of the game.
