THQ Nordic launched a remastered re-release of De Blob for the PS4 and Xbox One towards the end of last year, and it’ll be followed by a De Blob 2 re-release on both platforms later this month. But yesterday, the publisher confirmed that De Blob, and its sequel, will also be available for the Nintendo Switch sometime in 2018.
De Blob was originally released for the Wii all the way back in 2008, and it was followed by De Blob 2 in 2011. Like Nintendo’s Splatoon, both games feature a big splash of color as the titular hero must bring color back to a monochromatic world:
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.
De Blob 2
Comrade Black is back and so is his war on Color. There will be no stopping him or his brainwashing new cult from taking over Prisma City-that is, until De Blob comes back to re-ignite color revolution!
De Blob 2 is a platformer which utilizes unique painting functionality as the main game mechanic along with classic platforming actions and low gravity space. Set a few years after the events of the first De Blob game, action in De Blob 2 revolves around another attempt to wipe all colorful individuality from Prisma City and its residents. It’s up to the player to join the Color Underground and bring color back to the world. Features include: multiplayer support, 12 new single player levels, new power-ups and epic boss battles.
Hopefully we’ll learn more about De Blob and De Blob 2’s Switch debut soon.
