De Blob 2 confirmed for February release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
De Blob 2 – and its predecessor – are two well-respected, but occasionally overlooked, platforming gems from the last generation. And as good as they are, we haven’t heard much demand for current–gen remasters of either title.
Nonetheless, THQ Nordic is digging deep into the catalogue of games it acquired in 2013, and is bringing De Blob 2 to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on February 27th. The console release follows last year’s reissue on PC which added various resolution and graphic optimisations.
The new edition of De Blob 2 is more than a technical upgrade, however. The game includes 12 new single player levels, new power-ups, and split screen local multiplayer for two players.
Porting duties are being handled by Barcelona studio Blitworks, whose previous work includes the well-received conversions of Sonic CD, Fez, Spelunky, and Bastion, to name a few.
With the first quarter of this year looking a little calmer than 2017’s blockbuster start, it could be a well-timed release. We’re certainly looking forward to painting the town red, green, blue, yellow, orange, and purple again next month.
