WayForward’s wonderful remake of A Boy is his Blob might no longer be restricted to the Wii. A rating from Germany’s USK ratings board has leaked that the game could possibly be coming to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PS Vita and PC.
Publishers Majesco said it was looking into giving the series a go on modern platforms, but it seems that this will be done through an enhanced port of the 2009 game and not an original title.
I’m fine with that. I dabbled in this little game on the Wii, but never got around to beating it. It seems like the kind of title I would rather play in HD or on a mobile platform like the Vita. More importantly, I can’t wait to see that stunning art work outside of the original standard 480p resolution. I’d put this as the same as seeing Odin Sphere in HD for the first time.
We’ll just have to wait and see what Majesco announces. I’m hoping for the best! Many of this game’s developers went on to make Adventures of Pip, one my my favorite indie hits from this year.
