A Boy and His Blob is an 8-bit classic from the NES days released in 1989. A new announcement in Nintendo Power magazine says that developers WayForward, the guys behind LIT, are doing a remake for Wii.
The remake will feature hand-drawn backgrounds and animations. A side-scrolling platformer at heart, gameplay will remain unchanged, the boy feeds jellybeans to his blob in order to change him into various objects. Currently the list of things that blob can morph into looks like this: cannon, ladder, trampoline, anvil, bubble, parachute, human, rocket and hole.
A Boy and His Blob Wii is penned for release this Fall. It's a full blown disc release, not WiiWare.
