Nordic Games has acquired the rights to the de Blob IP from THQ, the firm has announced.
The asset purchase agreement with THQ Inc. and THQ International closed yesterday.
“de Blob is just a great and truly unique franchise”, said the firm's Reinhard Pollice. “We are excited about what the future holds for this polychromatic extravaganza as the newest addition to our portfolio. We will evaluate opportunities with the existing games, as well as potential sequels.”
The first entry in the Blue Tongue-developed platform-puzzle franchise released in 2008 on Wii and was published by THQ.
A mobile version followed the console release, while the Nintendo DS port, developed by Halfbrick Studios, never made it to stores.
The follow-up, de Blob 2, was released in 2011 on DS, PlayStation 3, Wii and Xbox 360.
