de Blob Heads to Switch in 2018

THQ Nordic has announced the remastered version of de Blob is coming to the Nintendo Switch.

The original colorful platformer will launch for the hybrid console sometime this year. The game was originally released for the Wii back in 2008, and was later remastered for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

Here’s a rundown on the game, via THQ Nordic:


The evil I.N.K.T. Corporation has declared ‘Color is a Crime!’ and leeched Chroma City of all its beauty and interest. The race to rescue Chroma City has just begun, and only de Blob can save the world from a black-and-white future with his unique abilities to color the world back to life.

Key Features:

  • de Blob: Flip, bounce and smash your way past the all-powerful I.N.K.T. Corporation to launch a revolution and save Chroma City from a future without color.
  • Long Live Color! Join the Color Revolutionaries in the resistance against Comrade Black and his diabolical array of hot plates, electric shocks, and ink turrets.
  • Free The Citizens: Free your friends from a black and white world by painting the city back to life as you dodge ink cannons, flatten I.N.K.T. tanks and outsmart Inky soldiers.
  • Multiplayer: Compete to control Chroma City in 4-player split screen in eight different multiplayer modes.
  • Save your City: Paint Chroma City’s towering skyscrapers, expansive bridges and massive landmarks in your own style using custom colors, patterns and soundtracks.

    I remember playing this. It’s pretty fun at the start, but hunting down that last little bit of the level that you didn’t color in to 100% made it a lot less so…
