A reimagining of the NES game, A Boy and His Blob from Majesco, WayForward, and Abstraction Games is coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Xbox One, and PC on January 19 in North America and Europe, complete with cross-buy on PlayStation.

Previously released on Wii in 2009, A Boy and His Blob includes 40 levels and more, as the description reveals:

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.

According to comments from Majesco last year, a new game in the A Boy and His Blob franchise is in the works.
