The puzzle platformer, A Boy And His Blob, has been around for almost 27 years and now it’s getting a release date for the PS4 and Xbox One, as well as the PlayStation Vita and PC. Publisher, Majesco Entertainment, announced that the classic would be released on January 19. Check out the trailer for the game below.



A Boy And His Blob first appeared on the NES in 1989 and was titled, A Boy And His Blob: Trouble In Blobolonia. The concept involved the boy befriending the blob, named Blobert, and helping him defeat a nefarious emperor taking over Blobert’s home planet.

In 2009, Wayforward Technologies released a reimagining of the Nintendo classic onto the Wii platform. While the artistic makeover was praised, they did make some drastic changes to the main protagonist, the boy. You can view original gameplay from the NES version below.



The boy in the Nintendo version appears older and more mature, while the boy in the Wii rendition has taken on a younger, more cutesy appearance.

A Boy And His Blob was exclusive to Nintendo consoles up until the announcement of a next-gen console release. Some users were not so happy with the change in plans.


While it’s understandable that someone could be upset about the loss of the exclusivity, it’s hard to argue that many games are turning to the next gen consoles for a major release. But the real question is why the game isn’t seeing a release on Wii U? One user pointed this fact out angrily.


As mentioned, A Boy And His Blob will be releasing on Xbox One, PS4, PC and PlayStation Vita on January 19.
