A Boy and His Blob was a lovely game on Wii, with developer WayForward producing a smart and substantially improved offering on its NES source of inspiration; the game would go on to have HD iterations on other systems.

Nintendo players will finally get to sample the game while it's looking at its high-def best, it seems, with publisher Ziggurat confirming that it's coming to Switch this Fall / Autumn. You can see some PR blurb below.

  • Experience a heartwarming story told through beautiful hand-drawn and animated illustrations!
  • Feed the blob jellybeans to activate 15 useful transformations such as the Caramel Cannon, Bubble Gum Bouncer, and classic beans like the Licorice Ladder, Apple Jack, and Tangerine Trampoline.
  • Traverse woods, swamps, caves, the Blobolonian Outskirts, and even the Emperor's Citadel through 40 breathtaking levels filled with hidden treasures!
  • Collect treasure to unlock 40 additional challenge levels that will put your skills to the ultimate test!

If you want a better feel for its gameplay, below is a trailer for the 2016 HD re-release.
