We learned of the possibility of well received Wii platformer A Boy and his Blob making its way to PlayStation Vita in late 2015 thanks to a listing on the German Ratings Board, but now Abstraction Games have confirmed that they are indeed bringing the game to our favourite handheld.

Originally developed by WayForward, the game is set to launch as a cross-buy title on January 19th, check out the official synopsis of the game below;

A Boy and His Blob makes its triumphant return! A reimagining of the NES classic, as the boy, you feed your blob jelly beans and watch him transform into cool and useful objects to solve puzzles and escape danger. With its robust and emotionally driven story, challenging puzzles, and visually impressive art style, A Boy and His Blob is sure to become a classic once again.

When Blobolonia is threatened by an evil Emperor, the blob comes to Earth looking for help. Instead, he finds a young boy. Help the blob dethrone the evil Emperor that’s terrorizing Blobolonia and establish a friendship with the blob that will last a lifetime.

An announcement trailer was always revealed which you can also watch below;

    Super awesome! I own a PS4, but I’m hoping it runs well on Vita to play it there instead. I couldn’t stand the Wii so it’s great news for me 😀
