In an earlier post, I mentioned how I’m looking forward to the new A Boy And His Blob for Nintendo Wii (Click here for pics of the original NES A Boy And His Blob and the sequel, along with some gorgeous screenshots of the soon-to-be-released update).
A new trailer for the game, in stores October 13, has shown up online.
Here it is, but be warned, the following clip contains scenes of graphic cuteness:
I’m a big fan of the art direction for this game.
I love the look of the little boy, his little blob buddy, the evil blob emperor and his blob henchmen.
The backgrounds are amazing - gorgeous with an immense amount of vibrant detail.
And, well, there’s so much to love really: the jelly bean-shaped blob homeworld; the shot of the little boy sleeping in his bedroom, all cozy-like (aw); the animation of the Blob gobbling up a treasure chest; the heretofore unseen mech transformation which is ridiculously awesome.
The bit near the end with the blob family…
The hugging… mustn’t forget the hugging! (The game even has a dedicated hug button used to calm the blob down when he’s feeling scared!)
The final shot of the trailer…
Too cute! I want this game!
