de Blob remaster releasing this year on Nintendo Switch

de Blob is a puzzle platformer released on Wii back in 2008, and is regarded as one of the top third-party games on the console by many fans. And about 10 years later, the game is about to make another appearance on a Nintendo platform, with the announcement of the de Blob remaster for the Nintendo Switch by THQ Nordic.

Never heard of the game before? Here’s what it’s all about:

The evil I.N.K.T. Corporation has declared ‘Color is a Crime!’ and leeched Chroma City of all its beauty and interest. The race to rescue Chroma City has just begun, and only de Blob can save the world from a black-and-white future with his unique abilities to color the world back to life.

This remaster of de Blob is done by Blitworks, a company specialised in quality ports, who has already worked on Super Meat Boy on Nintendo Switch. It will be released sometime in 2018, and will available both at retail and on the Nintendo Switch.

Here’s what the boxart looks like:

Here’s the list of key features:

  • de Blob: Flip, bounce and smash your way past the all-powerful I.N.K.T. Corporation to launch a revolution and save Chroma City from a future without color
  • Long Live Color! Join the Color Revolutionaries in the resistance against Comrade Black and his diabolical array of hot plates, electric shocks, and ink turrets
  • Free The Citizens: Free your friends from a black and white world by painting the city back to life as you dodge ink cannons, flatten I.N.K.T. tanks and outsmart Inky soldiers
  • Multiplayer: Compete to control Chroma City in 4-player split screen in eight different multiplayer modes
  • Save your City: Paint Chroma City’s towering skyscrapers, expansive bridges and massive landmarks in your own style using custom colors, patterns and soundtracks

de Blob (Switch) will be released later this year, in Europe and North America. The Upcoming Games page has been updated!
