There isn’t much I can say in this post aside from OMG A NEW BOY AND HIS BLOB GAME IS CONFIRMED FOR THE WII!
Seriously, that’s pretty much all the information available.
According to the latest Nintendo Power, a reinvention of the classic NES oddity will be making its way to the Wii sometime in the future. When, exactly? Not sure. Will it be a remake or a revitalized version of the canceled 2005 Nintendo DS sequel? Sadly, that’s unknown. Will it be released on a disc or directly to WiiWare? Um, I have no idea!
All Nintendo sent out is the above tantalizing image and a very pixelated scan of the article itself. I included the scan in the gallery, but don’t get too excited: you really can’t see much of anything. From what I can make out, it looks like there will be a boy in the game. And a blob. And a moon. And maybe a … tree? Oh, it doesn’t matter: A NEW BOY AND HIS BLOB GAME IS CONFIRMED FOR THE WII!
What do you think? Does this news excite you? Will you be picking up the new issue of Nintendo Power to find out more details? If you were my blob and I fed you a lemon-flavored jelly bean, what would you turn into?
[UPDATE: I just saw an un-pixelated version of the Nintendo Power article (which hints that the game is a straight-up remake), and let me just say this: wow. The game looks jaw-droppingly gorgeous. Sadly, I can’t legally post the image, but … be prepared.]
