Developer WayForward has announced a Nintendo Switch port for their puzzle-platformer A Boy and His Blob, to be published on November 4th by Ziggurat Interactive. The Switch edition will include forty additional challenge levels.

A reboot of the franchise dating back to Absolute Entertainment's 1989 NES title Trouble on Blobolonia, A Boy and His Blob launched for the Nintendo Wii console in October of 2009. The 2D sidescrolling adventure title requires the player to cooperate with his amorphous pet in traversing various obstacles. Feeding the blob jellybeans prompts the critter to transform into a number of shapes, including the Caramel Cannon, Bubble Gum Bouncer, and Tangerine Trampoline.

A high-definition port developed by Abstraction Games is available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One , as well as Windows, Mac, and Linux operating systems through Steam. The 30-track digital soundtrack, composed by Daniel Sadowski, is streaming on Amazon Music Unlimited, Spotify, Apple Music.
