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

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.
