Nintendo Switch welcomes the classic “de Blob”

Back in 2008, THQ released to the world a game which would go on to win several awards from IGN, along with the hearts of many people. de Blob, coming out for the Wii at the time created much hype and now, Blitworks port the game to the newest Nintendo console in the market, the Switch. The announcement was made in spectacular fashion with the trailer below

Being announced back in February of this year, the game has finally come to the market. It follows the same storyline, being ported, of course, related to the original de Blob that came to the Wii, once upon a time. As a precursor, as to what de Blob is about, for people not familiar with the title, de Blob is a 2008 platform-puzzle videogame. The game has players explore and liberate an alien city from the evil, monochromatic INKT Corporation that has taken over the city and outlawed all colour and fun from daily life. Playing as de Blob, players embark on a quest to re-animate the fictional place of Chroma City and free it from the INKT Corporation by splattering buildings, landmarks, and citizens with colour.

The new game is no different either. It comes with a small description of what the title is going to be about, events revolving around the story/gameplay.
