de Blob 2 release date confirmed

HD debut for stylish Wii platformer.

de Blob 2 will launch in the US on 22nd February 2011 for DS, PlayStation 3, Wii and Xbox 360 .

The news comes courtesy of the game's official site, which offers no firm news on when the sequel will bound on over to European shores. We're checking with THQ now for clarification.

The original game, which saw the titular blob restoring colour to a monochrome city, was a Wii-only affair and very enjoyable it was too. Eurogamer's Kristan Reed gave Blue Tongue's eccentric adventure 8/10 back in 2008.

The game was a rare third party Wii success story, shifting over a million copies, so THQ has decided to go multi-platform for the sequel.

The publisher has confirmed that the game will include Move functionality for the PlayStation 3 and HD versions are 3D compatible.
