de Blob 2 Gets a Lick of HD Paint and Move Controls

Colour us intrigued

The original de Blob for Wii was a critical success for THQ, so much so that the publisher is branching out onto other formats with the sequel. de Blob 2 is on the way to PS3 in February next year, and it's bringing PlayStation Move controls to boot.

Bringing more of the same paint-splattering platforming action as the previous game, this new title will also be playable in stereoscopic 3D for extra eye-popping points. The team has also taken onboard criticism of the original game's controls, with jumping now mapped to the Move button rather than motion-activated, and the extra precision afforded by Move should make the game even easier and more enjoyable to control.

The brand new footage below combines in-game video with rendered footage, but it's looking absolutely excellent and a welcome addition to Move's software line-up. de Blob 2 is expected to launch in February next year.

Perfect timing as my sons and I decided to give deBlob to their cousin. We still don't have Move but I'm getting more tempted by the day.

I've never played the first one...I wonder if it's likely to be a problem? Keeping in mind that to me, any and all plot connections count as a big problem.

Then yes, for you it'll be a big problem as it's the same characters from the first one (I believe). Still looks ace though and I can't wait to try it in HD and 3D!
