Today, Majesco has announced that the HD remaster of A Boy and His Blob will be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on January 19.

The remaster was first shown off last August. The game will be a high-definition re-release of the 2009 Wii game developed by WayForward. If you’ve never heard of it, A Boy and His Blob features an alien blob who comes to Earth looking for help from a young boy to save its homeworld, Blobolonia, from an evil emperor.

The original A Boy and His Blob launched on the Nintendo Entertainment System and was designed by Pitfall creator David Crane.

Also accompanying this announcement is a new trailer, which shows off the numerous ways players traverse levels. I loved A Boy and His Blob back in 2009, and I’m excited to check it out again on the current generation of platforms. You can watch the new trailer below.
