From what I have heard of the original version of A Boy and his Blob for the NES, it must have been one challenging title, with difficulty approaching that of Ghouls ‘N’ Ghosts or the original Contra. One wonders if this revised version of the game, done by WayForward for the Nintendo Wii, will approach those sadistic heights.
While its difficulty level will remain up in the air, one aspect that is certain is that the game looks excellent; a fact that is verified thanks to these new screenshots below (cheers Aussie-Nintendo). They show a game that has visuals akin to a story book.
Seeing these shots, along with these videos, certainly makes this a title that I would not mind looking more into. It will be interesting to see how it fares when it sees release.
